Description

In Detail

Designed by Peter Parfitt, the UJK Technology Parf Guide System (PGS) is a joint development with Axminster Tools & Machinery. Manufacturing of the system takes place entirely in Axminster, Devon under the UJK Technology brand name.
The Parf Guide System (PGS) is a highly accurate method of laying out a pattern of 20mm holes in a bench top or work surface to create a track saw cutting station. Using the PGS, this task is both quick and easy, producing spot-on results every time. With an accurate pattern of 20mm holes and a set of Veritas Parf Dogs, you will be able to make the perfect right angle or 45° cuts with a guide rail and track saw.
The PGS provides an infallible method to make a track saw cutting station on site in less than 30 minutes, making this an invaluable tool. With the PGS, you will be able to make a custom bench top or portable cutting board whenever the need arises.
Based on Pythagoras' theorem, the PGS uses two Parf sticks along with a 3mm drill guide and 3mm drill bit to create an accurately placed series of holes with the rows at perfect right angles to the columns. Then the guide block and the special 20mm bit come into play to produce the final pattern of 20mm holes.
Parf Guide System comprises two Parf Sticks, 1m long with a series of 3mm holes along the length at 96mm centres; a 3mm drill guide with 3mm drill bit and three 3mm guide pins. Plus, a guide block and a special 20mm TC drill bit with a 3mm centre guide.

Works as advertised.

Needed a top for a home made systainer cart to use as an extension for my mft3 to allow longer cuts. This kit did exactly what it says. Fit and finish are excellent. Parf dogs and the rule pins fit a little snugly - but they should if you really want holes that are square to each other. With a little care on insertion they all worked fine and in a relatively short time I had the top that I wanted. Was impressed by the long barb on the drill bit to center into the small holes, but found the bit itself not quite as sharp as I would expect for the price. It made for a little extra time in the drilling, but all in all this is an excellent product. Ingenious design is amazingly simple and expedient solution, and it makes more sense to me than other similar products that by there nature would not be as accurate.

Bitter sweet, bad review.

This truly is bitter sweet, I love Axminster, and I love Peter Parfit.

But I'm afraid mine didn't work.

I'm using mine in conjunction with the Veritas bench dogs. Which are recommended alongside this product.
And the large ones wobble in the holes, which is a problem considering that's what the track rests against when your sawing anything over 12mm in thickness. I'm cutting 18mm MDF mostly.

My holes are laid out perfectly square according to my gauges. I followed the instructions and believe to have done it correctly referring to Peters videos constantly.

But the large dogs still wobble.
I used all the clamping assembly firmly fixed and clamped each time for each hole small and large. But the holes were to big.

I of course assumed it was my error and re-attempted but it turned out the same.

I sent it back and I'm true Axminster style got a speedy replacement, alas the same happened. After returning that I got a call from Axminster technical team saying after analysis there is a discrepancy between the diameter of the dogs and the diameter of the holes!

After hearing this I'm of the opinion it can't JUST have been me, other people must of experienced this no?

I'm aware you can screw the dogs in from underneath, so potentially with a bit of faff you could set it up permantly, but that's not the quick changing convenient tracksaw cutting station promised.

I returned all of mine and got a full refund, exceptional Axminster service as usual.

So sorry Peter, when I don't have anything good to say I usually don't bother! I love your content on YouTube!!
But because I've been told about the discrepancy in the dogs, I don't understand how this is getting such good reviews?

Axminster Reply:

We appreciate the time that David has spent writing this review and would like to offer our comment. It is recommended that for the highest accuracy that the tall Parf Dogs be fixed to the bench top by a simple 8 mm screw knob from underneath. This takes less than 5 seconds each and is, in our view, the cause of David's concern.

Looking forward to using it again soon!

Holes

I live in Southern California where the Parf Guide System isn't sold directly. I had to order from the U.K. Daunting at first, but Axminster made it relatively painless. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to math so I had to have the directions with me the whole time. I watched Peter's video, rushed to the shop and started to go through the process before I forgot what I'd just watched on YouTube. My first top turned out perfectly. Not one mistake. I'm delighted with the system. It's not nearly as difficult as I'd imagined. In fact it's rather straight forward. Everything worked exactly the way it was supposed to work. If I can do it, I'm convinced anyone can. Now I'm looking for surfaces into which I may drill 20mm holes on 96mm centers.

Extremely accurate

I just received this amazing jig and I think i'm about to go HAM and drill 20mm holes on every vertical and horizontal surface in my work shop. The accuracy is shocking. I took my time and drilled a reasonably large array of 8 x 12 holes into my new workbench top, and I can confirm the advertised accuracy.
