Made this jig a few months ago as I needed to make a roller for my feed mechanism of my thickness sander. It has 1/4” threaded rod pieces at each end mounted into bearings for easy turning. Both ends are adjustable up and down on t-slots to allow me to make tapered turnings. Just drill a 3/16” hole in each end of your blank and thread in the rods. Use your drill on high and go crazy.
For this blank I made it round with only two passes. It is very easy to dial in the diameter of the turning by how much you raise the saw blade. The saw blade is off center of the jig so that the cut is made on the top of the saw blade teeth.
Got the idea from Izzy Swan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp5n7SpzGLE&list=TLza-yNaDazK5FX5Zr3_AzdTsS7EuUob6n
