The UJK Technology Parf Guide System (PGS) is a versatile piece of kit which allows you to create a custom benchtop or portable cutting board in less than 30 minutes whenever the need arises.
Based on the ancient mathematical Pythagoras' theorem, the PSG guarantees perfect 45° and 90° cuts, producing spot-on results every time. When used with an accurate pattern of 20mm holes, a set of UJK Technology Parf Super Dogs, a guide rail and a track saw, the task is both quick and easy. Ideal for onsite work, the PGS an invaluable tool for both professionals and hobbyists.
Designed by Peter Parfitt, the UJK Technology Parf Guide System is a joint development with Axminster Tools & Machinery. Manufacturing of the system takes place entirely in Axminster, Devon under the UJK Technology brand name.
How It Works
The Parf Guide System 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. Once the pattern of 3mm holes has been completed, the holes need to be enlarged to 20mm using the special drilling jig and boring bit supplied with the kit.
The Parf sticks have the addition of an accurate scale along one edge so that they may have other uses in the workshop, the metric scale has no bearing as to where the holes are situated. The 3mm holes in the scale are CNC machined to a very high tolerance to ensure that the system achieves such an overall high degree of accuracy.
The Parf Guide System comprises of 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. A guide block, two UJK low profile dogs and a special 20mm TC drill bit with a 3mm centre guide is also included.
