Default Jasper Cir.Jig

For John and others that have one the best Cir.jigs, the Jasper 400J

I have many cir.jigs and the Jasper (200 and the 400J ) are the best ones I have, this is just a easy way to use the Jasper without the need to bolt it on the router every time you just need to cut out a quick cir.
Just a drop it in the hole and go..

The little white insert is cut out on the scroll saw and than just press into jig than drill a hole dead center for a 1/2" brass guide or use the Milescraft turn lock one.

I like to use a 3/8" router bit ,more meat but it still works with the 1/4" router bit as well..no math change ,but if you use the 3/8" bit you need to do a little bit of math but it's all done for you on the jig.

John just a note, if you make the plastic insert for your Jasper 400J jig ,set the scroll saw table at 1 deg. off so you have a press in fit...you may need to make more than one to get it just right..

HI Bob - I like it. Takes care of two problems I've noticed with the jig. The thin plate and getting the pin lined up with the right hole can be a PIA. Course, some of that may be the bifocals
Haven't got a scroll saw but know a guy that does and is good at it

John Schaben

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Question

Hi Bob,

Now that I have access to a "Mens Shed" with a scroll saw, I may attempt your fix for the Jasper 400.

Or try and cut it with a coping saw.

What was the white plastic you used?

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Hi James

It was some 1/4" thick plastic I had around in the shop it can be anything you have that is 1/4" thick ,but plastic works the best for a press in fit.

How about a snapshot after you get it done..

A place for men to get together for woodworking in an informal atmosphere

The Strathfield Men’s Shed is a member of the Men’s Sheds Australia, an informal network of over 400 Men’s Sheds around Australia.
Our aim is to have fun sessions where we
[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Ryan/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtml1/01/clip_image001.gif[/IMG] Support and encourage our members in a spirit of fairness, teamwork and mateship
[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Ryan/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtml1/01/clip_image001.gif[/IMG] Encourage members to safely learn and share craft skills to make useful items
[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Ryan/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtml1/01/clip_image001.gif[/IMG] Have good interactions with each other
It is essentially a meeting place for men who have some time to spare and want to find worthwhile and meaningful activity. They may be interested in working on an individual project, fixing up some broken items around the house, working together on some community project or just sitting around for a coffee and a chat.

James you need to update your figures, there are now about 600 "Sheds" and growing daily and it is spreading OS.

It is also for men who can't/don't have their own shed/workshop for various reasons and is not restricted to woodworking only.

These are not my figures - they are from the web site for the Strathfield Men's Shed...

Good to see that the idea is spreading- I wait to see if the idea will catch on in US... I doubt their responsible bodies are that altruistic...

Are you a member of a "shed"...?


PS I see from your profile that you are.....
