Just finished this jig today, and have yet to try it out.
it has a plywood platform in the center that supports the router/plunge base, a trammel on one end, and an edge guide on the opposite end. All three components can be adjusted. i used aluminum bars (i think) for the jig. i used a v-groove bit throughout the sides of the jig to house the bars.
i actually bought knobs for this one cause there was so many. i used t nuts where the threaded rods/knobs are located.
the one problem i encounted; the base that supports the router was too small to mount my router parallel with the jig. you can see in the picture its mounted cock-eyed… but really don’t think it will be an issue.
i think the pics for the most part will be telling of how this thing works and all.
i’m not sure how it’s going to perform, but all in all it wasn’t too difficult to make.
it’s not my design, i can’t remember what magazine i got the plans from.
this jig is suppose to excel at making curved moldings. hope to try it out soon
thanks for reading, if you got this far
