A real easy and simple jig to find the centre of a circle can be made in five to ten minutes… and very simple to use. So simple I cam home from work, hand a coffee made the jig and filmed the process, quickly edited the video uploaded to youtube all before dinner ;-)

Video found here of the build.

Just what I often need in my workshop.

Nicely done… Great jig – -

On a job or even in the office for centering crafts projects working with kids…
I always just use a framing square, or for small circles a business card, or a notepad (just need a 90 degree corner.)

To use the corner needs to touch the edge of the circle. “X” marks the spot. The jig is definitely faster.
