Bought a new fridge freezer.
Measured it, should have at least 6mm on each Side to fit the thing
It didn’t fit – note to people renovating. 80’s houses have wonky walls!!
Well, it almost fit…but only at an angle and clearly needed just a few millimeters more on each side.
So, I did what any sane person would do….purchased a circular saw, dismantled this part of the kitchen and cut 35mm off the side!
Initially I tried a jigsaw but found the blade jumped a little bit making the line straight, but at an angle. I needed a proper parallel line
So….I bought a circular saw, made a jig by screwing some spare wood to the cupboard carcass.
You can use clamps other ways. I found that measuring up 400mm from the back and screwing this onto the unseen part of the cupboard made a perfect alignment tool.
They say measure twice, cut once. The slightly tedious measure, screw, measure, screw did well though….
I moved this outside due to the mess. On the plus side, I discovered that a leaf blower works wonderfully indoors for de-dusting :-p
Only thing left now is to figure out how to make the doors narrower and tidier!
Well, and remove that plug socket at the back, or make it higher otherwise the fridge sticks out too much!
Won’t be onto the electronic stuff until my container arrives!
