Unika Hotrod / Drainer Worktop Jig


This jig has been developed by one of Europe’s leading jig manufacturers.

It has been designed to aid and assist a carpenter to route sloping drainage grooves (of approximately 450 mm in length) in a natural wood or stone worktop, such as might be used with a Belfast sink. In addition, it is possible to rout mounting grooves for hot rods of up to 460mm in length. Accommodates 8 hotrods.

A fast and accurate process. Cuts out the need for measuring – just line up the jig on the worktop and clamp into place.

For use with any wood worktop, and can be used on stone when using the correct routing tools.

  • Use with a 12.7mm bull-nose router cutter and 30mm guide bush.
  • 12mm Hardwearing Compact Laminate Material

Additional information


  • Make sure all cables are clear of the router.
  • Make sure the work piece is correctly supported.
  • Always use protective goggles when using the router.
  • Do not switch router on with blade touching the work.
  • Never remove the router when it is switched on and moving.
  • Make sure there are no obstructions to the path of the router.


  • Never try to cut more than 10mm depth on one cut.
  • Do not force the router too fast. This can damage expensive router bits.
  • Never remove the router from the jig whilst it is in motion. Always allow router to stop and switch off before removing.
  • Ensure that the section of the worktop to be routed out is well supported from below.
  • If routing for a long period of time, we advise that ear protection is worn.
