ACCESSORIES
Recommended Cutters
Ref. NLE50RB or TT/50X1/2TC
A 12.7mm (1/2”) diameter cutter must be used,
which has a 50mm cutting reach and plunge cut
facility.
Router must be plunged in stages of maximum
8mm in one pass.
Sub-base Set Ref. TT/UNIBASE
To obtain a perfect accurate close fitting joint, a
30mm guide bush must be used. The guide
bush must always be fitted concentric with the
cutter. This can be achieved using a T-TECH
Universal Sub-base and 30mm outside diameter
guide bush ref. TT/GB30.
The T-TECH Universal Sub-base has a central
recess to allow fitting of the T-TECH guide bush
to most makes of routers and is available ready
to fit the most popular makes.

The Sub-base contains screws, a line up bush
and two line up pins. The line up pins and bush
ensure exact alignment of Sub-base with router
spindle, when fitted with the relevant collet.
General instructions for fitting
Sub-bases to Router
1. Fit line up guide bush onto sub-base, with
screws supplied.
2. Fit 12.7mm (1/2”) shank line up pin into collet
of router. Plunge router until pin projects
through base and lock plunge.
3. Locate guide bush and sub-base assembly
over protruding pin.
4. Line up fixing holes and fit screws.
5. Now tighten up screws.
6. Remove line up bush and line up pin.
Alignment should now be correct. Fit 30mm

7. Periodically check the sub-base is concentric
to the spindle of the router.

Panel Butt Connector Bolts
Ref. TT/PC/10M (Pack of ten)
Panel butt connectors are essential for
connecting worktops. They fit into the recess on
the underside of the worktop and are tightened
with a 10mm spanner. The jig has integral bolt
recess slots to allow the bolt recess to be cut in
the underside of the worktop, using the standard
router cutter. The recess is elongated to allow
easy access for the spanner.
Biscuit Jointer for the Router
Ref. TT/48X1/2TC
Worktops with inadequate support below them
need additional stability by biscuit jointing the
edges. The T-TECH biscuit jointing set for the
router together with the No.20 biscuits will
ensure worktops do not sag or warp in time.
Flat Biscuit Dowels
Ref. TT/BSC/20 (Pack of 100 biscuits)
Biscuits are used to strengthen the joint. When
used with PVA glue they expand ensuring a tight
joint.
Clamp
Two heavy duty quick action or gripper clamps
with throats of at least 100mm (4”) are required
to secure the jig to the worktop.

n Fit two location bushes in female holes (F)
as shown. (The label must be uppermost.)
Leave the length stop bush in position.
n Place the template onto the worktop to be
cut, ensuring the location bushes are
touching the worktop. Now cramp securely

(with minimum of 100mm throat) ensuring
they will not foul the router path.

When cutting a joint, hold the router
guide bush hard against the template

recommended that the depth stops of
the router are used to set the depths
of cut. Several shallow passes of the
router should be made and it is not
necessary to lean heavily on the
router or the jig. Allow the weight of
the router to rest on the part of the

Depending on a right or left hand joint, the pencil
line may need to be transferred on to the other
side. Due to the difference between the cutter
and the guide bush diameters, the cutter path
will be 8.5mm over from the edge of the
template, therefore either measure 8.5mm or
use a packing piece of this size to offset the
template by this amount to ensure the cutter cuts
along the pencil line.
The postformed edge of the worktop must
always be in contact with the location bushes,
this means that to cut a male right hand joint, the
worktop must be inverted. Remembering to cut
into the postformed edge.

Out-of-square Joints (max 3°)
Only the male cut needs to be adjusted if an outof-square joint is required. On out-of-square
joints there is a possibility of the chipboard core
of the worktop becoming exposed which will
need to be hidden with sealant.

Depending on accessibility mark out an out-ofsquare joint, first lay the female board on the

Strengthening the Joint
If the joint between the worktops is not supported
underneath, after some time the joint may ‘sag’
and become misaligned; to reduce this the joint
should be reinforced with a loose tongue or

Sealing the Joint
The cut edges of the joint should be coated with
a water-resistant adhesive, or worktop sealant
before assembly, to prevent moisture seeping
into the core of the worktops, which would swell,
and disfigure the worktop.
Use a fine grit abrasive paper to clean up the
torn wood chips of both mating surfaces. Lightly
run the abrasive paper along the edges to de-nib
the cut chipboard edge. This will ensure a tidy
joint is achieved.
MAINTENANCE
The jig has been designed to operate over a
long period of time with a minimum of
maintenance. Continual satisfactory operation
depends upon proper tool care and regular
cleaning.
Cleaning
n Regularly clean the jig with a soft cloth.
Lubrication
n Your jig requires no additional lubrication.
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
Recycle raw materials instead of disposing
as waste.
Packaging should be sorted for environmental
friendly recycling.
The product and its accessories at the end of
their life should be sorted for environmentalfriendly recycling.
GUARANTEE
The jig carries a manufacturers guarantee in
accordance with the conditions on the
enclosed guarantee card.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
Fault
Cause
Remedy
n Joint does not fit correctly
at the radius.
Cutter or guide bush is the
incorrect diameter or location
bushes are not against
worktop edge.
Check concentricity of cutter
with guide bush. Cutter 12.7mm
diameter with 30mm diameter
guide bush. Ensure location
bushes touch worktop.
n The back edge of the joint
does not line up.
Either the length stop or
template was in the incorrect
position, or the worktop has
not pushed up against the
length stop when the joint
was cut.
Check position of length stop
and re-cut joints.
n When clamped together the
joint has irregular gaps.
The guide bush has drifted away
from the edge of the template
whilst cutting either part of the
joint, or wood chips in particle
board have torn slightly.
Check with a straight edge
which part of the joint is uneven
and re-cut (this can only be
done on the male cut) ensuring
that the guide bush is kept
against the template by
machining from left to right. Use
abrasive paper to remove torn
wood chips.
n Chipped laminate
Can be caused by a blunt cutter
or removing too much material
at one pass or exiting out of
postform edge.
Always use sharp cutters and
when cutting through the
laminate cut 3–4mm of material.
Maintain correct feed direction,
to ensure cutter enters
postform edge.
n Jig slipping on material
Clamps not secure or too deep
a cut being made or cutter is
blunt.
Check clamps for wear. Clamp
securely, take shallow passes,
use a sharp cutter.
n Cut joints not square
Router has tilted or operator
has leaned heavily on router
causing jig flex.
Ensure jig is supported and do
not push hard on router taking
shallow passes. Ensure weight
of router is on supported part
of jig and that the router is
upright.
n Assembled joint not flush
or bowed
Worktop different thickness or
worktop not flat (cupped).
Ensure worktop is same
thickness and flat.
