It's time for a new router circle jig

Whilst there is nothing wrong with my present router circle jig, I made it many years ago and thought that it was time for a new prettier one. The beauty of this design is that it can be adjusted smoothly by sliding then locking the router after the fulcrum pin has been screwed into an appropriate threaded hole. For those without metalworking facilities a hard wood block like on my older one is fine. I use an assortment of different length 1/4” pins and these can be made from coach bolts by cutting the thread to a suitable length and the same for the smooth section. Here is a link to the project

Very good Harry…

Do you have to drill a center-hole in the workpiece?

Can you use self-stick tape instead of drilling?

Anything of the jig in use?

Nice work!

It’s COOL that you can do metal milling as well… something I have never been exposed to…

Thank you.

Excelent Jig! I especially like the way you PURPOSELY made that mistake so we can know what NOT to do when we make our own.
