Default Circle jig for Colt?

Can someone please refresh my memory? Somewhere in here I have seen a plan for a simple circle jig for a Colt (or any other router too I guess.) I need something I can quickly stick on the square standard base of a Colt and, using a brass guide and a 1/4 carbide upcut bit make some circles.
I have to do this late at night otherwise my wife will alert her mother, Beer Joint Betty (93)so they can both make snide remarks about me ..."going around in CIRCLES."

Hi Warren

You will need to get the base below, once you have it fix screw it to the Colt,then use 1/2" thick MDF to make the circle jig..drill a hole in the MDF to take on the brass guide you want to use.
Amazon.com: Bosch PR010 Round Subbase for Threaded Temp Guides for Bosch Colt Palm Routers: Home Improvement

Something like below.

That's the one. Thank you very kindly. I have the round Pat Warner base which should work and, for that matter, the off-set Warner base too.
If I think of it I will post pix of the elegant product I produce. Maybe.
