If you don’t have a trammel to cut circles or arches with your router, from now on you won’t have excuses anymore !
Are required : some kind of rod the diameter to fit your router (arrow), a set screw, a bolt, a nut and a hardwood block.
Drill a down size diameter through hole in the hardwood block for the bolt, a similar one for the set screw, and finally a third for the adjustable rod, but the same diameter as the rod, as shown. The nut, which doesn’t require much torque, simply freezes the bolt.

No more excuses !

Hope this one could help someone.

More details on this page of my blog.

Best,

Serge

Great idea.

What’s with the ZOOM PICTURES function. Is it my computer or is it the website? Not working for me.

Thanks for sharing.
