Would be glad to share dimensions. Kind of new to this so feeling my way around how it works. So many talented people on here. My stuff don’t compare but still fun to share.

That’s a great idea, the ruler. I just marked off 1/2” lines. I might try adding a ruler like yours.

Thank you. I would have cut the shallow dado right up to the edge but with cutting the 40 degree angle for the slide it would have probably torn up the edge. So I moved it back and connected lines from the ruler to the slide. Should of made a rabbet for the slide. 20/20.

Nice looking jig. I am curious how you lock the slide in place so that the diameter doesn’t change while cutting?

Perfect for someone who often needs a circle cut out on a whim and doesn’t want to waste time making a single use jig (like me 8^)

Nice work!

The sliding center is nice. Mine, I just have to drill a new hole for each diameter and move the pin. I had not thought of the sliding center.

Great execution. I just got the same bandsaw. Such an upgrade from my cheap benchtop bandsaw.
