Which worktop jig is it...? The Festool alloy one or a resin/phenolic version?

not sure I understand "worktop jig".
Do you mean something you can use to make your own 20mm hole pattern on 96mm centers? - like a ParfGuide?

I assumed he was in the UK coz it's a commonly used description over on this side of the pond.

Here is an example of a jig......

And a spare set of pegs to fit it....

@TSO Products,

Peter must be "across the pond". What we call counter tops they call work tops. A work top jig allows them to put a masons miter (we'd call it a jack miter) into the top and join them at 90ยบ to each other.

Never fit one but their joints look easier than our (US) full miters on countertops.

Especially when you have two closed ends (walls) and a U-shaped top that runs
from wall to wall.

This is an example of what the finished joint looks like when cut with a router and a worktop jig.
