PEANUT® Jig Router Guide Bush

Designed for Carpenters and Small Workshops

  • A bespoke jig for use with handheld routers

  • Ideal for carpenters and small workshops

  • End drilling capabilities

  • Compatible with the PEANUT® 2 and PEANUT® 2 Short components

  • Makes 45° and 90° angled joints

The PEANUT Jig is precisely machined from high pressure laminate making it a very strong and highly accurate jig for furniture construction. Its large design makes it perfect for a workshop set-up or alternatively it can be transported to site in its hard-wearing nylon carry case.

 

The PEANUT Jig is compatible with the PEANUT 2 and PEANUT 2 Short and has the ability to create loose tenon and dowel joints (size up to 10mm) as well.

 

By repositioning the jig, PEANUT joints can be created on any size panel. Depending on application, we recommend that the PEANUT slots are positioned approximately 20cm apart.

Features:

  • The adjustable fence enables the jig to be used for 90° joints on panels with thicknesses >15.3mm and 45° joints on panels with thicknesses >18mm.   

  • Horizontal and vertical centre lines enable the jig to be used without the fence anywhere on a panel by aligning the centre lines with reference lines on the panel.

  • Countersunk screw holes along the horizontal centre line can be used to secure the jig when clamping is not possible, the screw holes will then be covered by the corresponding panel.

  • The jig features a waved design and a simple scale which allow for quick and simple positioning of the jig inserts.

  • The jig uses puzzle-like inserts which fit the waved design of the jig to guide a router and drill. The inserts are reversible so that the PEANUT slots can be routed in either direction. The inserts can also be positioned for vertical slots for applications such as drawer fronts.

  • On the jig body, the depth gauge has been machined to easily set the PEANUT® cutter in the router. Depth markings have also been inscribed on the jig body for setting the drill stop on the drill for the PEANUT®2 and PEANUT®2 Short component.

  • The jig includes a 6mm drill bush and 6mm drill with stop which is used to drill a 6mm hole for the PEANUT 2 or for 6mm dowels. Additional 5mm, 8mm and 10mm drill kits are available.

  • The jig also includes a high quality low profile router guide bush designed specially for the PEANUT® Jig inserts to allow the router base to sit flat on the jig.
