This is multiple templtes for the Freud plunge router. I have included a template for the original base, one with a ruler all the way aroung the edge, a 3in, 2in and original size center hole and a small template to attach to other jigs. I don’t have templates for any other router baseplates yet but I have a Porter Cable router also which may be next.

The throat insert for my Powermatic 14 inch bandsaw broke almost day one that I had it so I made these out of masonite and haven’t turned back. They are a perfect friction fit and work wonderful. Zero clearance and standard throat sizes included in the file.

I needed a center finding rule one day so I decided to make one out of 1/8 in cherry. It has imperial and metric graduations. It has remained flat and square for about 6 years now.

I cut out these and use spray adhesive to attach them to my Worksharp tempered glass wheels. I also get 2 small rectangles of sandpaper as a bonus. This saves me a ton of money.

I have a small hook and loop bowl sander that the sandpaper is super expensive for so I made this to, again, save me some money. If you buy hook and loop backed sandpaper in 8.5×11 sheets you can use this without modification, otherwise it’s not hard to customize the file to suit your needs. I’ve actually used the hook and loop backed sanding disks from my random orbit sander with this. It doesn’t cut the shape perfect because of the holes but it still works. The wood doesn’t care what the sandpaper looks like.

This cuts 4 90 degree shapes out to be stacked and used as a clamping jig for frames or anything else. There are 1/8 in alignment holes to insert .125 brass rod into so everything lines up nicely. I cut mine from masonite and glued the layers with CA glue.

OK so I’m a little particular when it comes to my sandpaper. I would rather have nice neat piles in my drawer than torn up sheets of differing sizes.
