When you’re laying out your belt slots, you want to make sure you leave plenty of leather around the slot. This template is sized to allow for 1/2″ of leather around the belt slot. One side of the template can be used for a curved edge around your slot, while the other can be used for a parallel line around your slot – your choice! I also like to use the curved edge like a makeshift French Curve.
These templates are laser cut out of 1/8″ durable cast acrylic right here in our workshop in Decatur, TX.
For an example of how I use this template, check out this video (at the 0:45 second mark):
