Step-by-step instructions and list of necessary tools for cutting out a rectangular sink.
- Core the corners with a wet core drill bit (most common core bit size is 1-3/8″ – can use with the Alpha® VSP-320 or other appropriate machine.)
- Then cut the straight sections with the AccuGlide.
- Use a Jig Saw and diamond blade (or angle grinder and 4.5″ straight diamond blade) for finishing the tag left behind by the circular saw blade. Always use GFCI protection.
- Polish the inside corners using a 4″ polish pad on a 3″ backer pad on the VSP-320. This set up allows for polishing straight runs but also has extra flex for the inside corner.
- Use the Alpha® Profiler B to profile the top edge if needed.
- Use a plastic coring template with a 1-3/8” core bit to drill your faucet holes.
