Default Flexible Template

Need a sure way to duplicate a curve in wood?



I think this kind of template has been discussed here before but they weren't available in NA.
But they are now via (at least) a couple of suppliers. Woodline and World Class Supply @ AmazonWorld Class Supply @ Amazon

You're right, Michael, we talked about the Fisch Flexi Curve about a year ago. But they weren't sold here.



Looks like CMT is now making (or distributing) a similar product in the U.S.

Thanks for the links.

Actually, when I asked, Felder told me they had them. But one piece of plastic was pretty pricy, so I didnt bite. Oh, the many uses though.

I've been using the fisch for a couple of years now. Ive been using it in combination with my frontline bandsaw jig. I don't have the jig's original flexy curve template maker, so I've been using the fisch. Very handy to have! But like Randy mentioned, pricey for a bit of plastic..and that's all they are.
