Designed by renowned woodworker and inventor Peter Parfitt, we're pleased to provide UJK Technology's Parf Guide System MK II (PGS). A highly accurate means of laying out a pattern of 20mm holes in a work surface, the PGS MKII makes the task both quick and easy. Thanks to the high precision CNC machining used to perfectly position the registration holes along the two Parf sticks and some classical geometry (the Pythagorean theorem), the PGS MKII produces highly accurate hole positions—near CNC accuracy. With an accurate pattern of 20mm holes and a set of our DoubleGroove™ Dogs, you will be able to make the perfect right angle or 45° cuts with your guide rail and track saw.
The design of the MKII Parf Guide system preserves and guarantees the long-term accuracy of the jig as well as improving the ease of use.
The MKII Parf Guide System uses 2 x MKII Parf sticks along with a drill guide and a special 3mm drill bit to create rows and columns of holes at perfect right angles.
The accuracy of the system is dependent on the very tight tolerance of the holes in the Parf stick. The MKII drill guides locate positively into holes in the MKII Parf Stick. The guides feature an oilite bush to guide the MKII 3mm drill bit. This design prevents any possibility of wear or elongation of these vital holes as a result of repeated use. Additional holes in the MKII sticks offer the possibility of drilling intermediate holes at 32mm or 48mm centres or holes at predetermined angles other than 90°. The Parf sticks have a metric scale along one edge so that they may have other uses in the workshop.
For a limited time, we are including our own 10mm stainless steel clamping collar, an improvement over the included 10mm anodized aluminum stop collar. Customers have reported the grub screw inside the stop collar can mar the shaft of the 20mm forstner bit. This clamping collar provides even more clamping force without the potential to cause wear on the forstner bit.
How It Works
Based on Pythagorean theorem, the PGS MKII 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 MKII comprises two Parf Sticks, 1m long with a series of 3mm holes along the length at 96mm centers; 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 center guide.
