Circle router jig
A circle jig for my router so I could make a divider circle for another jig…

Jig – Jazz…
The jig is made from ply and a scrap piece of hard wood.
You can see the sketch on the picture, quite simple, I saw the pattern in a woodworking magazine but do not remember where, but others have made it here on LJ also so you might be able to find a reference.
The bar is divided into 5 cm (2 inch) and holes drilled for setting center and then the slice on the base is a bit longer than 5 cm and in this way the circle can be adjusted exact with the wing nut.
Here a link for my blog on the making: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/28422
Here is a link for a version with a drawing I found on the web:
1. Jig in action…
2. Ply base with drawing.
3. The rabbet for the slider and hole for the router bit.
4. Holes for the router mount and the slide for the adjustment.
5. Shaping for the pleasure.
6. Fast and easy to use.
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
