Molds for any jiggering machine are all about the same. The bottom mold is keyed to fit the spining head. The top  of machine is usually a plexigalss or metal  or wood edge that cuts the clay the outer shape..

You can pour the lower half and while its setting you can cut its shape on the machine with a edge you make to get the inner form you like.

Hope this is clear enough. I do not have a jigger but have been around them.

so for. plate as an example the lower mold is the inner plater shape with the cutting edge making the outside and foot on bottom. The inner form is paster the cutting upper edge can be plastic or wood or metal. wood wears fast so make it out of a hard wood for  jig top-plexiglass is better I think to use.

prateek, if you have access to the book "The Potter's Dictionary of materials and techniques"  jiggering and jolleying are described in only two paragraphs with two drawings.   not much help but someone else might know another source.
