Use this template for precise positioning of instrument holes and mounting screw holes in panel. For both 2-1/4" and 3-1/8" dia. instruments. With transfer punch for marking screw hole centers, and instructions.

Very helpful for panel layout. Nice and precise alignment lines and holes. Hard anodized aluminum.
When I was laying out holes I rotated the template only to find the holes did not line up anymore. Sighting down the holes they are drilled crooked and not making a symmetrical pattern. Also the included centering transfer punch has a tip that is too long. It contacts the work surface before the outer diameter engages in the template holes so you do not get a true centered hole. Aircraft spruce contacted me about these problems when I wrote the first review and I supplied photos. This went back and forth for a couple weeks and finally Spruce contacted me and said it was an outside vendor item and I needed to contact the vendor directly. But it's has Aircraft Spruce on the label and it's still being sold. Look elsewhere for an accurate pattern.
What is this template made of?
Black anodized brush aluminum.
