This is my first attempt at writing the blog. I’m testing how to present, the resolution of images, etc … I promise complete with photos and text illuminating.

This is a Beta version!

The construction of my Jig circular aims to make perfect cuts to facilitate the connection between the parts from cutting. The lower clamping system allows for maximum space on top. It will be used with larger radii. The pivot bracket can be rotated beyond the limits of the table, enabling greater capabilities in radius.
The pivot bracket can be replaced easily by larger pivot bracket.

It also aims to be used for as many machines as possible, including:

  • Band saw,
  • Router ,
  • and Sander .

I used as a point of rotation, steel rod of 12 mm, and as support for, a rotating bearing.

For the band saw is perfect.
For the router is almost.
Although it is possible to fix it in the router table is a bit off center. At the bottom is necessary to make an adjustable stop, which serves the two machines. The lifting bar can be the same.
In the case of sander, will see. The problem is the base for fixing to be very small.
