Just very simple jig made of srap playwood (15mm) and MDF (18mm) dimensions cca 29×21cm, which can accomodate up to 40cm circle.
Sliding bevel cut is 35 degree, fastened with 8mm threaded screw/knob thru 7mm threaded whole. It’s movable, also, left and right on rabbet.
Since my disc sander plate can be tilted to 45 degree, I can sand, also, circle edges with various angles.

Nice, easy, and effective. I assume that you are planning on making some projects that need a lot of circles?
Looks like fun.

Looks to be a simple and very effective jig. I may have to try that. Nice job.

Nicely done majuvla! This is perfect for sanding circles at any angle. I bet this would work well with a Ridgid Oscillating belt sander also.May I steal your idea?

That is a very worthwhile jig for sanding and rounding out circles. I like the idea very much.
