Default plans for a radius jig?

I've been build custom bass guitars for a while and it seems I am constantly looking for new or better ways to make the radius on the finger/fret board. Currently I use a swing type of jig placed over my belt sanding table with pretty good results but I have recently seen a few videos of jigs some people have made for doing it with a router. Anyone having a more detailed description or better yet plans for making one I'd be much appreciative.

Thanks R. Low Vaughn

you're looking for a saddle.

Tailor the radius to meet any requirements.
