I’ve needed a circle cutting jig for my bandsaw for some time. There are a lot of good jigs posted here on LJ’s … mine is sort of an amalgamation of the best I saw in my search.
This jig was built from scraps and odds & ends in my hardware bin. The platform is two pieces of plywood (1/2” and 3/4”) laminated together.
There is a cleat on the underside (operator side), which provides a positive stop. I plowed a dado in from the right centered on the blade gullets.
The ‘pivot pin’ is a #6×32 machine screw, drilled and tapped into one end of the blue T-track.
This jig can cut circles from 3” to 44” in diameter.
