The jigger mold is shown in front, by projecting its inside contour horizontally outward and then offsetting it by 3mm (and smoothing) I was able to create the jigger template. The template is 1 cm thick with a 30-degree draft along the cutting edge. I mount this to a 1/8" steel plate holder that is attached firmly to the jigger arm. No mount holes are needed, I heat up screws on a propane burner and just push them through the holes in the steel plate into this 3D-printed template, even fine threaded machine screws hold it on very firmly.
