Corner hobs in worktops

Corner hobs in worktops
  Q: I have a hob that is a trapezium shape and I would like to fit into into the corner of my kitchen at 45 degrees. Which worktop jig shoudl I purchase?

A: The trapezium shape hob will require the use of the KWJ900 worktop jig. This jig cuts the corner mitre using one cut at 45 degrees and the other at 90 degrees, which gives more space for the hob. If the hob was square then either the KWJ900 or COMBI1002 could be used.

Combi Jig 65 notches

Combi Jig 65 notches

Combi Worktop Jig joint not fitting
  Q: Why does my radius not match on my worktop after I have cut both sides with my Combi worktop jig.

A: Ensure that you are using the correct guide bush 30mm and that the line up bushes are against the postformed edge. Also check that the cutter and guide bush are concentric to each other. If they are not we recommend the UNIBASE.
