Default Circle Jig

For some one called N/A

Some one ask how to make a inexpensive circle jig to cut out holes for some speakers , I'm sorry I don't recall his name but here it is..

It slipped my mind until to day when I was pulling some old jigs off the wall,,the one made of MDF is a old one but it works very well and is very easy very and cheap to maKe, about a dollar or so and just a little bit of time..

It will do 1" to 24" holes/circles, and you don't need to drill it out for your router just slip in a 3/4" brass guide and cut the circle out..it will fit just about all the routers you have or want to use it with..

The hvy.duty white one is made about the same way but it has 1/4" pivot pin hole for cutting 2 layers of 3/4" thick MDF stock at one time, it's set up to do 3" to 12" speakers... bui it has a 1" hole for a 1" brass guide..to drop into .. the 1" hole makes it easy for the tons of chips to come out of the slot...and the guide..

I wish I had thought of just boring a hole for a template guide instead of base plate holes when I made mine. So much easier.

Thanks for the tip! I was just about to make some circle cuts and your post popped up.

You've made my job easier.

There Bj, at last you have admitted what I've suspected for a long time, you have so many templates and jigs hanging on top of each other that you could spend quite some time searching for a specific one.

I was going to ask what is the simplest way to cut 2.5" holes. Did the prerequisite search first and this thread popped up. I had seen it before but forgot about it.

Thanks for posting this tip Bobj,

Harry I had heard that Bj was way into gigs. I wonder how many new jigs he has made because he couldn't find the one made last week. Bj Bob told me you are a wiz at jigs, looks like he might be right.

It's so easy to get carried away on a specialist forum. Who could possibly disagree with Mikes answer.
