    • n templet In ship-building, a skeleton framework made of thin strips of wood (or occasionally of thin sheet-metal) used to form the outline of any part, as of a plate or bar which is to be fitted to a particular place in the structure. The templet is formed and marked from the parts already erected in place; it is then taken and laid flat on the plate or bar to be used, and the outlines and rivet-holes are transferred to the plate or bar, which can then be sheared, punched, and curved so as to fit the place into which it is to go.

In these applications it may be a thin piece of wood or metal, with one or all the edges cut in profile to the shape of the baluster, cornice, part of a machine, or other object to be wrought to shape. Templets are also used as guides in filing sheet-metal to shape, as in making small brass gears for clocks, sheets of brass being clamped between steel templets, and all the parts projecting beyond the edges being filed away. Templets are used in founding as patterns in forming molds in loam.
