The Jasper jig is really designed to be used with the 1/4” bit it comes with. The angle is the issue. Two jigs come to mind. Some are here using a table saw. I used this to make a tapered circle and it worked just fine. The other would be to use a band saw circle jig with the table tilted but blade deflection is an issue with that setup too. (ask me how I know) The blade in the BS has got to be able to cut that radius without binding so that really onlt leaves you with a 1/4” or 1/8” blade. I’d try it with the table flat and if it works try tilting the table.
