There are engravings on top of the jig body on where to cut them, but it's done freehand. Slow and steady will get er done. If you have a mill, you can cut them with that. Also, you will most likely have to use a punch to set the rails flat against the jig; the top plate wont do it alone.
You got your jig already? Sounds like the production jigs are different than the prototypes.
