I haven't seen one that can be used on a router table. The magazine "450+ best-ever Shop Tips" put out by the editors of Wood Magazine has a jig for freehand use of a router. Its a board 7 1/2" long by 3 1/2" wide, with a 10° slope starting 1 13/16 from the top and ending at the other edge (where it is only 1/4" thick). There is a 1/2" slot 4 1/4" long centered in the angled portion of the wedge. At the thick end, a 3/8" piece of plywood is rabbetted to the bottom (flat) side to provide clamping room.
The jig is clamped to the workpiece, with the angled end lined up with the end of the workpiece. A 3/8" bit and 1/2" guide bushing is used on the router, and run down the slot in the jig to form the pocket hole.
I was trying to reverse the process for table operation, but then my brain exploded
I have seen the article you mentioned, it is a router table jig consisting of two plywood boxes at a 10 degree angle one box slides over the top of the first box. It has a slot in it for the a straight router bit and a stop. I believe it was in WORK BENCH magazine but i'm not sure witch issue.
