Default Small Circle Cutting Jig ?

Anyone use the Jasper Tools #400 Small Circle Cutting Jig? I just ordered one and hope I did not waste my money. I need to cut some small holes and want to use the router, I have a circle jig but it does not go nearly small enough.

Hi Bob.

I have a Jasper 400 and agree with bobj3. I find it easy to use for standard size holes and can be adapted for many routers.

What circle jig do you have at the moment?

How small a hole do you need to make?

The short comings of the 400 are that 1) not infinitely variable, only moves in 1/16" increments. 2) maximum size 7 1/2".

I also have a 'home made' jig based on the one made by Harrysin.

A circle jig is very handy to have.

I have a jig from Rockler but it cuts from 10"d to 52"d. I want to cut some 6" disc & the 1/8" hole in the center will be no problem as I plan to drill a 1 3/8" hole there anyway. I also bought the Bosch edge guide kit with the Bosch 1617EVSPK which will cut circles but again not small enough and I don't like there way of fastening the center as I don't trust some strips of tape as they suggest to hold the center attachment. I have some ideas to modify that but I want to get on with this project and will save the modification for later.

Depending on the size hole needed, I use a hole cutting saw.
