Template Guide depth
I am a new member and just bought a PC 893 kit with both fixed and plunge bases. I bought a piece of melamine to build a router table and got the plate from Rockler. I also bought Rockler's template guide set. When I started to make my pattern for the plate cutout, I really looked at the guides for the first time. The barrel on (most) of the guides is too long for my preferred pattern material. So I returned the set to Rockler.
SO, my question:
Is there a template guide set availabel that has 1/4" barrels (for tempered hardboard or quarter ply)?
Or, should I just plan on making all my patterns out of thicker material?
Or, Is there an easy way to cut the long templates to the depth I would like.
I could almost imagine cutting the brass on a wood lathe with a parting tool, but thats probably not a good idea.
Thanks for any and all tips
