    Went to tip at the weekend, walked past someone throwing some goods away, and asked the guy if he was chucking out the box.

    I was planing on making a box for the jig to keep it safe when not in use.

    Couldn't ask for a better fit, fits snugly without any movement. HAPPY DAYS :)





    Plaaning to line the box with a thin layer of rubber or foam at the top or bottom.

    Go for the egg box shape foam top and bottom. Should prevent it rattling

    Thanks :)

    Going to order some from the internet.

    Won't get in any on the sides as such a snug fit with no play, just front back, top and bottom.

    The jig looks exactly the same as the one I have, but a lot cheaper.

    it came with a fence as well as the round bushes (used when routing hinge recess on the frame). I have installed the fence and kept the parts in a small tub.

    I looked at the UJK Technology Hinge Jig, which you have, the fence is part I couldn't on with,seem a uneeded extra.
    Thinking about it, you could most likely use jig without the fence.

    Looks like presentation box from champagne, I agree, way too useful to skip

    Someone’s loss - your gain

    Amazing what some peeps chuck away, annoying really as like yourself, there’s always someone else who could make use of their ‘junk’

    Other week at local tip I picked up aliminium Youngmans step ladder, tall one, 8 tread I think

    Had been used, few paint splashes on it but near perfect

    I asked one of the workers if I could have it and said I will bung you a few quid mate. ‘Can’t take money’ he said, ‘will get me sacked, just make it dissapear’

    So I took it, I’ve used it, it’s been recycled, all good :)

    With the thing people chuck out I could make a permanent living, but haven't got room in a one bedroom flat!

    I am getting into restoring old furniture as have the skills, much better than the stuff that is made at today's standard and much more character.

    the wind.champagne must have been expensive for it to have a 'special box'.
