No more rummaging through a stack of templates for the right size, this package combines the most common grommet sizes into two templates. Each size is clearly labeled for quick identification. Transparent acrylic with fine cross-hairs on each hole makes it easy to align the template with your pencil marks. Use with the 5/8" Short-Shank Guide Bushing, which is specially designed for 1/4" template stock.

The template holes are 1/8'' larger than thee finished size to allow for a guide bushing. The finishes circle sizes are: 3-1/2", 3-1/4", 3-1/8", 3", 2-3/4", 2-1/2", 2-3/8", 2-1/4", 2", 1-15/16", 1-3/4", 1-9/16" and 1-3/8". Finishes oval sizes are: 2-1/2" x 6-1/8" and 2-3/8" x 4-5/8".

These templates can easily be attached to your piece / surface using double-sided tape. For a firm hold you can also countersink some holes and screw the template to the work-piece. This is designed for use with a 5/8'' short-shank guide bushing and a 1/2'' spiral up-cut bit but other bits may be used for alternative results.

The variety of circle / oval sizes makes these templates ideal for grommets, inlays and general tracing for other projects.

Handy template

Fit for Purpose
Does the job very well with my Bosch router and bushings. Easy to align on work piece. I use double-sided tape to affix the template to the work piece, then clean the template with Goo Gone afterwards.

One thing to consider is that you may end up with some scorching on the edges of the hole. That's been my experience with hard maple. Perhaps better technique on my part could reduce or eliminate that.

Worked very well
The template was spot on. Very easy to use. Previously I used a Forstner bit. This is much cleaner.

A good template enabling you to make accurate inlays and holes for grommets saves a lot of time. Well worth the investment.

It has saved me a ton of time by having all templates on one plate. It has allowed me to clean out my template drawer and free up valuable space.

Worked perfect for circles and a router. I wish that the company would come out with a series of ovals. I had a project that needed a 1/2" oval. Cutting it out with a jig saw/ scroll saw was almost impossible.

I need to make recessed holes frequently and my biggest forstner bit is 2 in. If i set this to only go through about 1/4 inch, it should be fine, right? and I could clean up the rest of the hole with the same bit?
christy h on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these templates and the included bushing would work well for this purpose.
