Fragranite - Knocking a tap-hole into the sink

Ensure colour sticker is in the centre of the pre-formed tap-hole.

 

Follow the descriptive line drawings shown on template or:

 

  1. Take the sink out of the box and rest the sink vertically against your legs with the face of the sink facing outwards, ensuring that the tap-hole is for the correct hand-drainer. Take care not to damage the edge of the sink in the process.
  2. Take a centre-punch and place on the centre of the colour sticker.
  3. Strike the punch hard with a hammer. This will result in the core of the tap-hole being knocked out.
  4. Finish off, using the ball of the hammer and a round file.
