« Part 9: New cutting and sanding jigs ... Part 10 of Circle cutting series Part 11: How it works... »

Due to the fact that some of my boards have curves ends … I need to make another jig… this one for cutting arcs… to start with I need to decide how the arc would look… so a test jig was made…

Hole were drilled at various places so the jig can pivot on the bolt in the centre part of the circle cutting jig….. a fence attached and then the distance from the pin to the blade was adjusted to see how the different curves would look..

After several test cuts at different positions and distances…. I found 2 that I liked… I then took accurate measurements of these dimensions and will now make the jig for regular use…
