I found a great site on Youtube that shows how to make various jigs. Primarily for guitar makers but some can be adapted to general woodworking. This is a circle jig for inlaid holes in guitars. But I added a fence (made of wood) and now it is a micro adjustable router edge guide. Mine adjusts in increments of .001” just like the expensive jig you can buy commercially. 20 threads per inch = .0500 for 1 revolution. The youtube site is by Chris Paulick.

Shortly after finishing my micro adjustable router jig I was lucky to purchase a few items at an estate auction. I got a mircofence jig with various other router jigs and attachments for $40. I had to make an adapter to fit my trim router. Still need to make another adapter for my plunge router.
