That would be the one Herb... I was hoping that you were going to say you had one that was collecting dust.:frown:

I stupidly gouged one of the sides of the templates teeth which creates between a 16th" and 1/8th" gap on one of the joints. That's why I would like to replace it at a reasonable price. The least expensive one (Amazon) is a 1/3rd of the cost of the entire PC 4216 Jig. Maybe someone will re-gift one to me :laugh2: I'll work around it/with it until then.

Marco, for a quick fix until you can replace it, can you get some JB Weld and build up that gouge and file it smooth? I have used it before on filling and patching metal and it is outstanding. Here is the link there are a lot of different kinds.

Thanks Herb I did not think of that. It will be a little while with Christmas coming up but I will let you know how it works out.

At first I thought of using solder but figured that it wouldn't stay. I did try some vinyl tape. It looked good and thought it may work but the routers template guide bushing would not fit between the teeth.

Hey Herb, I tried your quick fix with JB Weld and a file and it worked well. I ended up patching 2 of the teeth. There was a little slag on the bottom of one that scraped right off. For filing them down I used a 80 grit piece of sand paper. I would sand then try to run the guide bushing through the slot. The JB Weld sanded down very easily and when all was done just a little bit was left on the teeth when the guide bushing ran through the slot. The guide bushing ran smoothly so hopefully that will improve the cuts.

Jim, are the teeth metal, or black plastic? I have seen both, but the metal ones I saw were Aluminum. Regular solder for metal will not stick to Aluminum, They do have some aluminum type of solder, Here is some information if you are thinking about fill with an aluminum solder if the JB weld does not hold up.
