I threw this together the other day, I put my circle jig UP somewhere and for the life of me I could not find it, so, I grabbed some scraps and here it is:

The T-nut was heated just a tad to pull into the 3/8 plexi, the tines will protrude into the top, just take a file and smooth everything up.

The stud was ground to a point , however small you want, it’s a jig you can build to suit your needs.

What’s the smallest circle circumference you can cut with it?

LOL….. that was just for the photo shoot, had to dress the part, I always wear my boots when working, get a little sawdust or wood chip in the socks and it gets a little itchy, not to mention, when you get old you drop stuff, usually ON your feet!!!!

Looks good!
I have the small jasper circle jig and can’t find the parts for it at all so it’s just sat around unused.

I recently grabbed the rockler circle jig when it was on sale for $30 and free shipping. I’ll probably make something for smaller circles if I can’t find the parts to my jasper.
