I have no idea, but your countertop is beautiful.
Thank you! I love the countertop but I need to get rid of the sink and replace it with a stainless one!
You'll need a sink that is bigger than what you have. Use its template then use a diamond blade saw blade in a jigsaw, may need to keep it wet. Not too sure it will be easy. They aren't made to be cut out. May take many blades if it would even work.
Double check the under side. That does not look like it is integrated to me... it looks like it is held in place by little clamps on the bottom of the counter top. That's how mine is assembled.
put the sink upside down on the worktop get it in the position you want then draw a line around the outside of the sink and remove sink now take tape measure and measure in from the lines 1/2" into the area of the sink on all 4 side and now cut the inner marks with jigsaw this will give you 1/2" all round
ok elaine there should be small clamps under the worktop to hold down the sink to the worktop if possible unscrew these then the sink should lift out with a little bit of prising ,but sometimes they can become corroded in this case they would have to be cut off you don,t have to remove them fully a few turns and then you should be able swivel them away from the the worktop
You would need a sink larger than the one you have with a lip. You would need a carbide drill bit and a carbide blade circular saw. Tape off the countertop with blue painters tape around the sink. Measure the top of new sink. Transfer the measurements to the countertop less 1/2". Measure accurately. So lip will ride the counter. Drill holes in the corners first. Then drill from hole to hole. Make sure you support the old sink from underneath. It will be slow going with solid surface. Let the saw do the work. Don't force it so not to crack the counter.
Thank you! I knew it could be done!
I have the exact same problem. Were you able to remove your sink without having to purchase a new countertop? Thanks, g.
We are going to try to tackle it this summer. Wish me luck!
I have the very same problem. My name is Chip by the way, I am going to try to leave the sink and countertop alone and use a small router or roto-zip to try cutting it from the inside of the sink to there outside. In fact I will be tackling this project is a couple days. I has to be complete by Nov. 12, 2022.
Good luck to you all.
