« Part 10: Arc cutting like Patron does. Part 11 of Circle cutting series no next part

I think that a short video explains things better than a lot of words… so I made this on my i-Phone. I apologise ahead of time for taking this one handed… but as you can see the jig can be operated safely with one hand on a camera..although it is certainly easier with two hands and no camera….

While I was cutting one arc… well I made a few more boards…

As you can see a teaser for the next project idea…

One for the beer drinkers and one for the recyclers…Keep them out of land fill….The bottle caps that is…..

Me being Green…doing my bit for the environment…

I can’t see it.
You filmed it on the iPhone, but I can’t watch it on my iPhone.
I’ll have to wait until I get home after work.
