What I am after is a template kit that I can make up signs and so forth (for me upcoming new member to the family). I have seen several I like yet the freight to get it to New Zealand is the trouble!! Let me know if anyone has one they want to get rid of!!

Cheers all

Aaron,
This is what I use for signs (not getting rid of it -- but might give you some ideas for looking locally).


The only online source that I have found for a similiar carver is Terrco CM-Series Sign Carving

Overkill for sure if you are only looking to make a couple signs, but if you are wanting to make quite a few this is a very handy setup.

Thanks Ron. Over on the other side of the world I don't get the chance to find out about these places.

I just bought the one from Lee Valley that Julie mentions, love it, it works like a charm, just make sure you have brass guide bushings, the ones that came with the kit are the only drawback, they're a little wonky. :D

The Lee Valley kit shown on the link Julie posted ($55) is identical to the one Sears sells for $20 with the exception that the horizontal rods are longer. I have one and it does a good job for a small price.
