What are you trying to accomplish with the template? Are you wanting to make signs? The biggest problem with most of the hand router templates I've seen is they are very limited in size, font and arrangement. I think Rockler sells one set that has provisions for basic kerning (adjusting letter spacing), but that's about as sophisticated as they get. Today, with so many options from CNC machines, large and small, and laser engravers, the old hand router template has kind of gone by the wayside.
