If you are preparing a template to route out a circle for instance or a square as a simple example.paulcomi said:I get the idea of using a collar to guide a bit to rout something like a mortise for a lock, but I'm a little baffled about how to make precise templates. Glad to see the forum is still going strong.
Hi Paul,paulcomi said:Am I missing the intro to template guides you're mentioning? This information is helpful overall though guys.

Thanks Ed for your kind remarks. I am self taught when it comes to using template guides and I suppose I developed the skill on a 'Need to Know' basis. I was refurbishing executive air craft for a number of years and it was during that time I taught myself the use of the template guides. There was ans still is very little information on the use of the guides. Bob and Rick have given some answers to their use I am sure completing their demonstrations on Tv.

I wouldn't mind do some more posts on template guides/tempates and if you have some direction you would like to see them go let me know... right now I have posted several times on the subject but even for me to find them would be a pain...
Also Template Tom sure knows his way around the subject... he has a web page too... don't recall that address either...... Tom??? I have also seen some others posts on the subject from others....... Maybe this could become a new heading and become the leading resourse for this information on the web and then.... OK I'm getting carried away.......
