Default Give up on Porter Cable 55160 Omnijig?

I acquired a Porter Cable 55160 Omnijig second hand but it didn't include any of the template, which I'm finding extremely hard to find because they're discontinued. Is there a source for these or should I just junk the thing?

That's why I tend to buy new, and mostly what the folks here recommend. Sears has left the scene on replacement parts, Porter Cable is owned by a brand exploiting corporation which seems to have zero woodworkers in management. Abandon brands that abandon users.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I didn't even know what you were talking about, until I looked it up. Apparently you didn't check eBay, I just took a very brief look, but there are some for that model there. But, from looking at those templates, if I were in need of any I'd just get the dimensions, and make some - doesn't look like rocket science.
