Used to follow the outline of a pattern, these template guides are offered in two sizes. 1 3/16" sizes fit 1 3/16" through-bore base plates with a 1 3/8" counterbore, which includes all Porter-Cable, Black & Decker and Festool base plates as well as some from DeWalt, Elu, Hitachi, Makita and Skil. 1 3/4" sizes fit the Veritas base plate/table insert or any 1 1/2" through-bore base plate with a 1 3/4" counterbore.
The router bit protrudes through the hole in the center of the guide with the side of the guide bearing against the edge of the template. Made from solid brass, these guides are attached using the threaded brass ring nut (only one ring nut needed per size for any number of guides). Sold singly or in sets of eight 1 3/16" guides or six 1 3/4" guides and a ring nut. Ring nut also available separately.
Outside and inside diameters listed. Height listed is the minimum template thickness. The 7/16" diameter 1 3/4" template guide fits most dovetail jigs and accepts a 1/2" dovetail bit. The 1/2" high guides are particularly useful for letter templates.
