I like your concept. The manner in which you put it together was simple but more important it has accuracy. Pretty smart.
I immediately see the uses for just such a fixture on the drill press, and also, with other equipment and hand tools. Thanks for sharing.

yes the pics dont explain this very well
the basis for this is a ground down 24 tooth saw blade with a 5/8” bore which acts as a index plate
each tooth gullet is 15 degr.
a slide which has a 5/8” bearing mounted on a 1/4” pin acts as a center point and a ball catch provides a
locking mechanism ( pic 3 )
the complete assembly slides in a groove which is centered with the drill bit
by moving the slide the radius is determind and by moving the index plate the angle is determind relative to the starting point
the index plate is mounted to a base plate which has a holddown bolt and nut which holds the workpiece in place
to drill 24 holes of equal spacing i set the radius and clamp the slide in place and rotate the index plate 1 tooth at a time for the knob i turn the base plate 90 degr which is 6 gullets at 15 degr. each
i hope this helps

Ahhh , yes …just as I imagined : ) LOL
Is there an alignment feature so if your table had been moved everything will fall back into place ?

with the drillbit centre and its ready to go
