It is time to throw the traditional worktop jointing jigs out of the window in favour of the revolutionary Easy Set alignment window found on the new KWJ750P Pro and KWJ900P Pro Worktop Jigs from Trend.
With minimalistic thin worktops and flush front edge Handleless styles being the latest must have kitchen features, the KWJ Pro Jigs are now the jigs you must have; able to cut joints to suit any style, and in multiple materials including compact laminate, composite, solid timber and laminated chipboards.
Designed to remove all the issues of jointing when back edges have been scribed, or trying to joint non-standard width worktops with standard jigs, the new Trend Jigs are as simple as Measure, Mark, Clamp, Cut.
Unlike standard jigs, no pin is required to set and also limit the joint length so accuracy is guaranteed by taking all the set up and registration positions from the front edge.
The jigs will not only match the current trends and the traditional edge profiles, they are also able to evolve to keep up with new designs, trends and styles as they come in to fashion.
These are jigs that work across multiple edge profiles as well, so whether they are Postform, Bullnose, small radius or square edge profiles, all styles are covered with 5 different backsets of 3mm, 5mm, 10mm, 24mm and 35mm, set using simple backset cams that match up to settings in the Easy Set window.
For harder square edge tops such a compact laminate, the 3mm backset allows the joint to be made in a single pass with the benefit of reduced router strain, increased cutter life and of course, faster, more productive results; essential for the time conscious, self-employed trade user.
Whether it is a standard, scribed or bespoke width worktop, every joint can now be made with unerring accuracy no matter what the worktop width. Joint lengths are 150mm to 750mm for the 750P and 150 to 900mm for the 900P.
The KWJ750P is the direct replacement or upgrade to traditional worktop jigs, but for added diversity and adaptability, the KWJ900P is a four in one component based jig system that can be built into different worktop jig sizes for different applications; 500mm maximum cut length for bathroom vanity installations, 750mm maximum for standard kitchen installations and a full 900mm cut for wider breakfast bars and peninsular installations. The fourth function is the standalone mini jig for letting in bolt recesses, 35mm hinge recesses and monobloc tap fittings. The adaptable modular size is ideal for easy positioning in awkward installations. The whole jig packs down into a compact carry bag, ideal for transportation if you use public transport, or for easy safe storage in the van or workshop.
Common to both jigs are the flush fit clamp recesses; designed for use with standard plunge saw rail clamps. Allowing restriction free travel of the router through the cut for faster and safer cutting.
