These simple templates are indispensable in the shop. Turners will appreciate that they make quick work of locating the center of a turning blank. They can also be used to determine the maximum yield from an oddly shaped slab, or for locating interesting figure where you want it; just lay the template on top and use the concentric rings to center where you want. For cabinet work, they can be used in place of a compass for sizing and laying out corner radii (instead of reaching for the nearest roll of tape or tin can to trace). A center pin hole can be used to fix the template; insert a pencil in the appropriate guide hole and draw the desired arc with confidence. The template graduations show up well on both light and dark wood.
Available in 8" and 16" diameters, and graduated by 1/2" diameters. Made in Canada.
