Yeah I ended up with that kind of shape last night on a cardboard attempt as was measuring all different measurements around it for the hinges and all to get the best mount but then just thought 10mm all the way around would be fine and a hell of a lot easier to cut out T:

Hey Robbo. I recently fitted one of those myself. It isnt too difficult one you get your head round the dimensioned drawing in the manual. I just marked up the worktop from the measurements in there, double checked them, tripple checked them, then cut it out. One thing I did notice was that the corners need to be rebaited (7ish mm i think?! i used a router...) to allow the unit to mount properly and sit flush. Seems like a bit of an unnecessary design feature really but, to my relief it all worked out in the end... phew! Bit of a shame smev are such tight bu*@ers that they dont include a full size template eh!

Sounds like a plan mate. Took me a couple of cuppers and a scribble pad to finally suss it! I just added a pic of the rebaited corners to my buildthread if its any help!?
Awesome ... couldn't figure out what everyone meant but your picture makes it a lot clearer ... nice build thanks A:

Hi all,
I am looking to fit one of these hob combos, could anyone tell me the minimum depth of kitchen unit top I need to fit it in. Will 400mm depth be enough? Many thanks
Dave
