I made a circle cutting jig for my bandsaw. It is capable of making from 16” to 59” circles. I used a 1/4 – 20 bolt as a pivot point. The bolt can be adjusted to any distance in the slot.
THe back edge of the blade (going up and down) is aligned with the back edge of the slot so the blade should track nicely and not bind (a good suggestion from Hal Taylor). I put a pc of wood on the back that fits in the miter slot so it’s easy to set the jig up the same way each time.
I also made a pivoting carrier that fits on the jig (not shown) to accurately cut the headrest of rocking chairs.
