Default MLCS Circle Jig

Anybody have any comments or experience on the new MLCS circle jig?

I haven't been too active so I'm unable to post urls.

Don't have one because there's no T Track in my table. But, it looks like it works just like the router mounted types. They work just fine. So, the MLCS jig should be just fine, too.

Hi Gene

That's great if you have a motorized lift with a foot switch since both hands are otherwise occupied.
I have a crank lift and I am wondering if the MLCS circle jig will work with the crank lift.

Hi Larry

No I don't sorry, but it's a very simple jig to make, just some 3/4" thick MDF with a tee slot down the center for a normal tee slot alum.block to hold a set screw and a bolt for the pivot point, I used some metal banding stock under the Alum.block to keep the set screw from putting in little holes in the MDF stock..
It will cut from a 1 1/2" hole to ~ as long as the board is..

It locks in place place with brass guide at one end of the jig and two screws about about center the board...the new pictures show a hole for the crank lift I use but they don't show in the old pictures below..that's makes is easy to lift the bit right in to the board...

Note the hole for the hand crank, see below, it must be out of the path of the router bit,to the left works for me
