Another circle cutter

I needed to cut circles, but I didn’t really want to use a router.
I found this on LJ and made one out of scrap.
Using the 1/4-20 bolt for a center, circles a large as 15” radius can be cut.
For smaller circles, just put a wood screw into the base at the desired radius.
Not bad for a 10” band saw.

I have that exact same saw and need to do the same thing. Nice work. I’ll have to make one. What other project did you get the idea from?

I found it here. I added the slot and the moving bolt.

Nice! I just made one myself so that I could cut out a round swing seat. They are a very handy jig to have.

Hey Dennis,

Great job on the jig and nice band saw. I have a small band saw but even a small desktop model is nice o have..anyway..concerning the circle cutting jig… have you seen the video of the guy cutting a circle with the table saw? I haven’t tried it but it looks pretty cool.
