New products are now available in the UJK Technology range. First launched in 2012, this carefully selected range of innovative routing, measuring and wood jointing products is designed in the UK by Axminster Tools & Machinery and then manufactured in the Far East.
Compact Lock Jig: this adjustable lock jig is made of 12mm thick high pressure laminate, dimensionally stable and comes with a lifetime guarantee never to warp. It is fully adjustable for locking faceplates up to 175mm in length.
The jig includes four interchangeable templates to cut mortice and faceplate recesses for the most popular door sash, mortice and deadlock sizes.
Set-up is easy by marking the centre line of the door and the centre line for the lock. The mortice will be parallel with the door face ensuring that the parts are then square, making it easier to fit the handles.
It is suitable for doors up to 58mm(2.1/4") thick. The user will require a 1/2" router with a 12.7mm(1/2") straight cutter (long reach if possible) and a 16mm guide bush. Additional requirements are two clamps to hold the jig in place and a screwdriver to adjust the settings.
Price: £89.95 inc vat.
