We highly recommend these peghead templates to be used in conjunction with the Headstock Drilling and Slotting Jig. They are perfect for marking your tuner locations. They are optional in case you have purchased them previously. Choose the template(s) that coordinate with the routing template and drill block(s) you chose.   

This template is designed to be used with a mechanical pencil - specifically, the Graphgear 500 - although others might work. The 0.09mm x 4mm Graphgear sleeve is longer than most mechanical pencils. It is made specifically for templates.
