Made this Band saw circle cutting jig a few years ago from ideas I got from Degoose and Dust bunny. Used left over ¾ cabinet plywood, miter track and miter slot one set screw and one 1/8 brass pin.
The pin may be moved out to 25” so a 50” circle may be cut. Made a haft circle dust collector for miter saw

I have added the sliding stop showing the pin and set screw, Both the pin and set screw hold it tight to the track.

How do you start the cut? Do you have to trim the wood to fit between the pin and the blade?

Lew and Mork, the band saw is a 18” Jet and has served me well.

Mork, trim the wood across to what will be the top of the circle. I like the way you set yours to cut its way to the top. Much easier way to get to the start point

Hmm… Maybe I need to incorporate both designs when I get my 18 inch band saw. Which will probably a long time from now. Thanks for the explanation.

Mike this may seem like a basic question, but how does your set screw work? I can’t find any hardware that flush locks in t track. Did you tap it?
