I am making replacement signs for our neighborhood so have a about a hundred to make. Some of the street names are very long so I needed an extra set of templates. I had read in other reviews about the troubles with flex in the rails letting the templates drop out so we started out by screwing a small block against each rail in the middle of the rails. It worked perfectly. After a dozen or so signs we tried it without the blocks. Just as others said the rails separated and let the templates fall out. We caught it in time and did not ruin the work piece. We made 24 signs with no more trouble using the blocks. If you have a lot of signs to make with this kit here is my advice.
1. Buy two kits instead of one kit plus another template. With two people one can be setting up the template guide while the second is routing.
2. If you use the double rails you must block the center.

We expect the kit be used with about 150 signs by blocking the center.

I purchased the Sign Pro to help my son make a trail sign for his Eagle Scout project. It took a little practice to get the letters cut right.

I broke one letter on my second try. This is because I did not have the chase tight enough and a letter came loose. They will pop out if you are not careful.

(The chase is the frame that holds the letters.)

If you want to do a lot of signs, I recommend that you order an extra letter kit. They supply two letters each with the original kit.

You are also limited to letter size. You can only do 2 1/2" and 1 1/2" letters.

You can do bigger letters with the Panagraph MilesCraft sells. You can also do graphics with it also.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I also recommend that you make short chases of letters instead of making a long chase of letters. It's easier to handle and you are less likly to make an mistake.

Be sure to use other letters as spacers between your words. Turn them around backwards so you won't cut them by mistake and mess up your sign.

Over all, I recommend the Sign Pro. It did a good job on our sign.

Absolute trash. I am a professional wood worker and this is as close to garbage as I have seen in a long time. The letters flip out as they are not held in by much. The clamps that hold it to the work piece slide all over the place. I Had to screw the jig to my work which left unwanted holes in it. If you use the 36" setup the rails flex to much in the center. I would not buy this again. it is truly trash.

I made my first sign this weekend and it came out great!

First of all, before purchasing the sign making kit, I watched this video on youtube:
[...]
This weekend, I unpacked the box, barely looked at the directions, assembled the rails based on what I remembered from the video, slid the letters in, figured out my rails needed the plastic things that keep the rails from spreading, disassembled, re-assembled with those on there. Once I had that all set, I tried using the big C-clamps to hold the template to my board, but they seemed to get in the way, so I just screwed the template to a board.

Next, I put the baseplate on my router. The screws that came with it were too long, but after a brief search through my parts drawers, I found 3 screws with the right threads and length to attach the plate to my router. Attached the guide thing, the bit and I was ready to go.

I was routing a fairly long sign and was using the things in the middle to join two sets of rails together. The rails were kind of bowed downward in the middle of my sign. I put one screw in my board below the bottom rail (close to the center of the board) to nudge the rails upward and into better alignment. I should have added a screw above the top rail to prevent it from flexing upward as I was routing.

My first attempt went pretty well, till I got to the letter "B".... where I messed up. Should have just done the perimeter, nothing internal. Once I realized that, the rest went well. I think I'll get better with time. This was my first time using a router. You don't need much pressure at all. Just lightly trace around.

Bottom line is - I love it! Easy to use, easy to assemble, works great.

Great concept that went terribly down hill in production. All of the products main down falls stem from it horribly flimsy design. at best you can only get adequate results with a lot of extra rigging together. Also the stencils (which of 3 broke during first use) are poorly selected. 2 Q's, Z's & X's but only 2 R's, T's, S's, etc. also it's hard to be a pro with the extreamily limited punctuation marks (no , !, @, #, $, %, &, (,), ?, /, :, -). I would have been very willing to pay more for a product that was practically manufactured. Certainly not a product one would want to use regularly (nor would it withstand the use). If a quality, accurate and frustration free experience is what you're looking for I highly recommend passing this tinker toy product by.

The jig is easy to set up and use. It took some practice to produce proper-looking letters from templates that had open spaces, such as the "O" and the "A", but it was mastered quickly. The letters and frame are not super heavy duty , but more than adequate. Highly recommended for value.
