How do I store a worktop jig?

Post by Argyll » Sat Dec 08, 2018 5:34 pm

I have a new Howdens worktop jig. I've had it stored behind my sofa as I'm wary of leaving it in my shed as I thought it may warp but then I thought it should be okay as it's laminated.

How do you store yours?

Like a cane fishing rod - hung against a flat wall in an atmosphere not prone to wild changes of temperature & humidity, so not a shed. Definitely not on a shelf.

If laminated, what's it made of? I thought worktop jigs were 8mm or 10mm aluminium.

The only ones I've seen ;like that were made by Titman. Expensive and rare. Festool do a sectional aluminium one as well - even more expensive
