    I used one of the fancier ones designed to be used with a palm router. It worked better than expected. If you have a steady hand and follow the directions, you can make a lower that looks like it came off a CNC.

    The best part about it is that you can buy the jig used and resell it when you’re done meaning it only costs you outbound shipping of like $10!

    Interesting...
    I wonder if any of those replaceable plates have a guide for that coveted third hole

    I’m sure the ol interwebz have plenty of printable templates. From there it would only require a drill press.

    sounds like you're planning for some mischief.
    that's not allowed.

    Maybe you should just buy yourself a nice keychain...
