I’ve been reading that S2S tempered hardboard is an ideal product for Jig construction, as I want to build some jigs for my router (an adjustable dado jig and an adjustable mortising jig), I would like to know where I can acquire this material.

I’m having problems finding a supplier, where do you buy your 1/4” thick, tempered, smooth 2 sides hardboard?

Its great stuff. By me, its available in Home Depot, Menards, & Lowes, all the big box stores have it not only in 4’ x 8’ but also half and quarter sheets.

It’s common name is masonite. Some lumber yards will sell it in preprimed 1x stock for use as exterior fascia.
