See here for step by step of build: https://community.shapertools.com/t/template-routing-aid/3612 Jig has two pairs of holes each to accommodate the 2200 and the 1400 routers in two different positions. Lacks the extra dust port of the OEM model, but the dust collection of these routers is usually sufficient to capture the chips on its own. There is no scale for setting the sides/fences, but I have added notches on center at the front and the back of the jig to align on center of an edge. The vast majority of my edge routing is on center so this has been sufficient for my purposes.
