You might recall that when I built the router lift from your plans I had made some aluminum rings. Or rather I had some one make them for me on a CNC router. My question is can you use this template trick to duplicate a disk? Can you show us how?

I’m sure you could with a little thought. Not sure when I’ll have time to experiment, but it would make for an interesting video!

I look forward to the video. I imagine there will be problems starting the cut and holding the disk flat while turning it.
