Default Wing jig

I am getting back into building SPADs and I need to make a wing jig so I can get some nice looking wings. For the life of me I can't seem to find the post I am looking for. Perhaps one of you guys knows where it is at. It was a wing jig post that had pics of this jig. It was a table top jig that was hinged. there was a piece of plywood with a dowel glues to it it make a nice rounded edge. Basicly you put the coro in and then pulled down on the handles bringing this doweled plywould down onto a 2X4 with a routered groove to fit the dowel. Of course you heasted the coro a bit and it bent smothly. It seemed like a very slick design and I want to try it out. Anyone have any information on this jig. I know it is a bit vauge but the mind is the first thing to go right. Please let me know.

Thanks

Here's what I do. It's adjustable, uses only four clamps, and can be disassembled so I have full use of that table. It can also be used for flat bottomed or symetrical, just shim up the tip for symetrical. I also measure it so the hinge line meets teh edge of the table, this ensures I have all teh control surface movement I need.
