Default Arc Layout Jig


Here's a little jig to help mark arc layouts for making routing templates. Friction is an issue with keeping the bow equal on both sides, but it's easy enough to correct. This is like others we've all seen, but this one has a registration fence to help keep things square and hopefully easier to operate.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

But this is still my all time favorite, the traditional way.

And, if you want to make your own, this tells how.
