I’ve never been satisfied with the circle cutter jigs that I’ve seen. I don’t know if this is just new to me but it worked so I thought I’d share. What I liked about this is the arm is free giving you the chance to mark the circle diameter on the work piece cut the router bit to it, then just stop the router and set the stop. You can then move the piece back and forth in and out as you need. The circle is for an old fassion card table style piece that should be done and up on the project page soon.

Pretty cool! I may have to try that.

I did something similar with my bandsaw for cutting circles. Yours looks better.

It looks like a great idea. Do you rough cut with your bandsaw first and then use this to clean it up , or just make one plunge cut and cut your circle all at once.

great idea, I have been trying to design something similar for the bandsaw table that allows me to cut circles without any drilled holes in the center…
