The most durable and practical pattress box template on the market.

A good little jig, works extremely well for small jobs or where brickwork is so hard a normal box chaser would fail.

Fast delivery, well packaged, worth every penny, much better than plastic.

Ebay Review

Good bit of engineering did exactly what I wanted it to do

Amazon Reviewer

I bought your pattress drilling template from Amazon the other day and I really like it.  I was so impressed I sent a recommendation to Screwfix that they should stock it.  I also wrote you a good review on Amazon, I hope it works out for you.

Amazon Reviewer

As a first time customer to your company I have got to say how very impressed I am with your high quality product. Not only was it received the next day by first class post but I was kept up to date on the dispatch of the item and the expected delivery date. I will certainly be passing your company onto my colleagues and Family.

Brilliant tool, made sinking pattresses easier and neater than other methods. Would recommend to anyone & would recommend the one with the level as it negates the need to use two tools

Ebay Reviewer

It does make cutting out sockets a lot easier, worked well for brick wall. Would recommend to buy.

Amazon Reviewer

Super Fast Delivery. Simple to use fix to wall, chain drill the 8mm holes, remove template, use a Scutch chisel hand or SDS and you will have a double socket suck in less than 10 minutes. Being aluminum it will last a lot lot longer than the old plastic versions.

Ebay Reviewer

Should of bought one sooner! So much less mess and much quicker than an angle grinder. Will be recommending it to others.

About MIX Engineering

Mix Engineering was founded in 2016 by Mick, a professional quality engineer with 50 years of engineering experience.

“When working on renovating a turn of the century property, I could find nothing on the market that could reliably create a recess for an electrical back box without breaking the product or breaking the bank. With over 30 recesses to cut, I realised I needed to create a solution.

After a few trials I was onto something and once I’d created it something sturdy enough to do the job, I refined it until I got to what we have today. I had to make a few so put the ones I wasn’t using online to sell. I was astounded to find 100’s of people show interest and buy the product for the same reason.”

MIX has been creating pattress jigs for customers for the past 3 years and because of customer request extended the product to create the triple.

“I’m so pleased to have created a product that people find so useful and I’m hope to apply the same thinking to a few more products in the future.”
