Default Omnijig Template guides

Hello all!! This is my first post on this site and am in need of some help. I have a 77240 Omnijig and need the G7 (77261) and G8 (77262) template guides. I would like to make some through dovetails in some 1/2 material on a project for my niece and they are currently discontinued from PC/Delta. Here are the specs for them:

77261-3/8"od-21/64"id-15/32" distance past base
77262-23/64"od-5/16"id-15/32" distance past base

Here are my questions:
Does anybody know where to find them?
Are these specs available on some guides from another manufacterer?
Has anyone done this procedure using some other combination of bits and guides?

I bought this jig to make all the drawers for my kitchen remodel. 34 drawers with half blind dovetails in 5/8" 13 ply maple ply. Awesome success with that. I am now trying to branch out and do more dovetails with it and this is my second attempt and have hit a roadblock. Not too happy now. Don't let me down routerforum!!!! Thanks, Andy!

You might be able to find what you need at e-replacement parts:

Looks like they can get the fingers and bars if nothing else. I thought i saw a few template guides on ebay over the weekend, but they didn't turn up when i searched for "omnijig". Good luck!!

Hi Andy. Welcome to the forum.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
