Cutting kitchen worktop

Can anyone answer a fairly basic question about router jigs, please?

I am planning to fit a kitchen worktop. I have a router jig (quad rout pro) which cuts up to 700mm widths. The worktop that I need to cut is 640mm wide. There are are post holes in the jig for 600, 624 and 650, but not 640.

Is there any way I can do it with this jig, or do I have to get a different one? I have seen a couple that do 640 but they are stupidly expensive.

THanks in advance

Hi Pete

You don't need a specific jig. The male side is cut with a peg to reference off the front (post-formed) edge of the worktop, so length isn't an issue. The female side references off the end of the worktop, so if your jig doesn't accommodate 640mm simply cut the piece overlength by 100mm 9if you can), set your jig at whatever the nearest (longer) length is and trim to size afterwards
