Insert - 3 replies

I have purchased a new Dovetail jig and have realized that I need a Porter Cable type insert for my table router. The jig has a 3/4” aluminum insert that requires a 1 3/6” opening insert to accept the attachment. Does anyone know where I can find one. My jig won’t get here until next week.
