    If you want to make up your own templates, then I'd suggest buying the "Pipe Fabricators Blue Book" by W.V. Graves,,,,,,,,, not the "Pipe Fitters Blue Book", different animal.
    Thanks for the name of this book.

    In a pinch I have used card stock like is used on the back of a notepad. Simply roll it around the pipe size you want coped and tape on a bubble level to get it verticle. then mark part of it and cut then repeat until it has a nice flowing cut that matches. Then wrap it around the piece to be coped and draw around with a marker and cut with a sawzall with a fine tooth blade. I have also used a pipe wrap and they give several good templates that help.

    These are the type I have used. I have 2 of the 4 sizes small and medium as I rather rarely need any bigger.
