I have the older blue rockler dovetail jig, but after I moved one of the templates (v-shaped slots) seems to have disappeared. Since you cannot get a replacement from Rockler, I was hoping that if someone could trace that template for me I could have a machinist friend make one up for me

Thanks so much for you time.

P.S. i can compensate for your time and postage

i had one and looked to see if i still had it but no luck, i guess dumped it a long time ago.only used it once and hated it,thats probably why rockler discontinued it.just bought the porter cable jig and love it.

Currently: Have you used all the templates. ? Has it been worth the extra expense???

yes i tried them all and the results if you saw my review pics were great.the jig does not come with a 1/2 straight bit for doing the box joint though,but does include the dovetail bits.ive only played with it so far but i have a bedroom set im working on and will do some dovetails on that.
