    How many arbors have you got. Should be one on the 44mm and one on the 25mm plus a spade bit.

    I bought a trade kit from Howdens when they were first in. That didnt have the latch marker or the latch tapper included.

    Got Pro Kit has 44mm 25mm and 22mm holesaw with a 32mm spade. Had to take the green bit out of the jig so i could get the 25mm cut. Not sure why it has the 22mm holesaw (smaller latch maybe)

    I think the 22mm works with the jigtech jig if you want to fit with non jigtech latches. Having said that mortice latches that fit directly in to a 22mm hole are few and far between. Most need a bit of chisel work.

    Just found their answer to the question.
    Q. What is the green collar for on the latch bore in the jig?

    In case installers wish to use the jig with old style contract latches and a 22mm hole saw

    Make more sense not to put the collar in the jig when new save confusing folk like me ;-)

    I was confused too as the trade kit includes the green collar but no 22mm holesaw.

    Really good system though, shame the latch can't be recessed a little though.
