Kitchen cabinet / draw handles

Coming the the final stage of fitting a kitchen and have 20 plus handles to fit to draws and cabinets, is there a jig / template I can buy rather than trying to make my own??

normally there is a plastic (like maths paper with all squares) jig that comes with the kitchen, but i never use them anyway i just find the centre of the draw and mark it by hand

Youve proberly finished the kitchen by now. But for future references....
I find it quicker and safer to throw the free jig your given and use a tape measure and pencil. Mark the center of the draw (width and height)and divide the span of the handle holes into 2. Mark these measurements either side of the center hole and drill with a 5mm drill. Dead simple. This means I dont make mistakes with drilling in the wrong place. hope this helps. Leo
