bobj3 Hi Marshall

Just one more way to do it on the router table

" Dust control is my main objective " not a big deal with the cir. jig on the router table ,hang the vac.hose from a sky hook ,right over the router bit it will suck up about 95 % of the dust..I don't use a sky hook I use a light ,the type that needs a 1/2" hole in the router table to support the light arm, I just wire tie the hose to the arm and move it over the bit, with the light on I have all the light I need plus a easy way to suck up the dust..
I also use it for the pin router set up on the router table and many other jobs

I think I have snapshot of it ,I will dig it up and post it .

AUFAITHFUL Cutting Circles on the Router table

I continue to try to figure out how to never remove my router from the table. This video from eagle lake is a slick way to keep 'er mounted. I have to turn the crank on my motorized lift, but you can figure out a way around the jigs if needed. Dust control is my main objective....

Hamlin I got lucky, I got all of their jigs. Of course, I made these purchases several yrs ago too.

bobj3 You can make a template like below, at one time OP sold the templates but no more, but they are very easy to make your own , and use your plunge router.see pictures below..
If you want a shot of just the template and the numbers to go with it just ask and I will post it,,.....

Actually, if you have a plunge round-over bit, you can do both at the same time, cut out the wheel, also placing the profile. Bob & Rick have done this in one of their episodes. Series #2, episode #203 Scallop Mirror frame. You WILL need the use of a trammel or circle jig for the router to do this.

harrysin Wilbur, what material and thickness have you in mind, this will have a bearing on the best method. Whilst giving these details, how about a few more in your profile, this can be helpful in our answers.

Twill57 I would use a trammel with a router attached. You can attach the blank to be cut to a piece of plywood and use a piece of scrap in the center for the pin of the trammel. Then you can cut both the inside and outside diameters. If you are going to shape the edges, that could be done on a table.
