Steve,

I don't know if this will help, but you can go to the following URL where I show how I make templates. I am documenting the creation of a redesigned slope plane from the ground up. It includes a lot of pics with brief descriptions on the methods I use.

I hope it helps.

Compufoil I have as well and it would work for templates.

I have a CNC hotwire so I rarely make template for wings any more.
