Default My jig for molding small round items.

Gday Guys

I'm sure I posted in the introductions and asked for help in jigs but can't find my posts. :/

Anyhow, goodnews I solved my problem. Looking in all types of forums and no solution.

So I put on my thinkin cap all afternoon and here to share how I got around my problem.

I wanted to put molding profiles on small 3" round blanks that I use for electronic ciggarette gear. See pics.


Here is a regular stand with edge routing. No to hard and not many get thrown around my shed by the table. lols.

Here is a blank and some of the molding bits I wished to use. Just would not work at all. :/

Welcome to the forum, Robert.

I cannot see any jig or how you got round that problem?

Gday JW

Sorry for the delay. My posts were not coming up as I am new and needed approval.

But anyways here it is...........

Here is a wood jig I made up to hold the blanks. 4 holes in a routed piece of wood. lols



I have a template made up for the holes in the base of the stand and screw to wood.

I can rout out around 300deg then turn the piece around 180deg and do the remaining 60deg.


Here is the finished piece. I have some speed and feed rate tuning to do to reduce the burning but definitely works well.



Hopefully this idea might help someone else in the future.

cheers Bob

Thanks Bob.

I see that you are using the Triton table. What router are you using?
