I made this so I could mount it to my Incra router fence and use the Incra repeatability and micro adjust to make wooden rings more accurately with my router. It works really well. It is also good for drilling bench dog holes. The design is original and simple. I would have bought one, but they all look like junk. This one works great and saves me $50. Made a video if you want to make your own.
