    Default template tool?

    Any of you remember those toys where it had a bunch of pins and you would put your hand on it and it would maybe a mold of your hand? Anything simular in the tool word but flat for making templates of curved things? I just attempted to use playdoo, it worked ok but i want somthing alot more exact. Figured maybe there was somthing out there that was simular, 12" long, with a bunch of pins that you pushed each one up against the surface adn then locked them in.

    I have one probably 8-10 inches. Has two flat side with pieces that slide to form the pattern. Can't think of what they are called but will look for it to see if it has a name on it. I think i found it at Lowes.

    I have one as well, they are not uncomon.

    "Contour gauge" is the name I believe.

    I have one, bought it through http://www.right-tool.com/12steelpinco.html

    I also needed a 12" but you can get shorter ones at Lowe's, Home Depot, Sears, Ace Hardware and most places that carry woodworking tools.
