    Which worktop jig would you recommend 10mm mitres for square edged worktops?

    I see Unika have an all singing multi-surface jig to do both shallow and deep cuts. http://www.unikainnovation.co.uk/?page_id=10874

    I spoke to Routing jigs who have one in the pipeline, but not yet :(

    The contact page on Axminster's website boasts of "knowledgeable and friendly team of Experts". The chap simply thumbed through their catalogue and didn't understand the question. Underwhelming.

    I just use biscuit jointer or router with suitable bit for cutting slots in worktop.

    They can't be directly butted because they usually have a tiny bevel on the corner, a smaller 10mm mitre gets rid of that.

    if you just want a 10mm deep masons mitre, I would cut it mainly by power tool and the rest by hand

    I use the unika jig in the link. Available from toolstation. Never had any issues with it

    Yep use the same jig myself. I did buy the contract one as well a couple of months ago because Toolstation had it on offer for £35 at the time................a cheep handy backup in case it's ever needed.

    Year and years of experience doing it for a living and can do it very well. If you can't cut a masons mitre without using a jig, it is a pretty poor show

    especially one that is only 10mm deep like the op wanted

    Don't be so stupid. If you do it for a living, are you telling me you cut Acrylic be hand ? i don't think so. If you do Acrylic you have to use a router and endless different jigs. If you have a router and all those jigs, why on earth would you waste your time cutting anything by hand ?

    Just pop a bit of 18mm board behind the pin on a standard jig.
