My router took a few nibbles out of my mortise and tenon templates. These are the clear ones that StewMac sells.

I was thinking fill with ca and file smooth, any other ideas for a repair? I’d really like to save it instead of replacing it.

Thanks,

You could solvent weld new pieces of acrylic into the divots with acetone.

I drilled some small holes in the damaged edge as anchoring points and used epoxy putty once. That was five or six years ago and it is holding.

I have spliced in a tight fitting piece of plexi and used CA glue with success
