For Laminate offcuts I go to kitchen/bathroom workshops, they always have decent size pieces in the dump bins. |
I was in the mood today to make a new jig using an Aluminium block, knowing that I had something like an 18" length of 1" square bar, but could I find it? NO. I'll look again when I'm in the mood.

Thanks guys! |
James I want to put a piece of laminate on the bottom of it but I don't have any. I don't even know where to get any that isn't a whole sheet. Right now I am having to buy school clothes for two high children and one daughter that will be a freshman in college. I went into the big box stores but only found whole sheets of laminate but they weren't totally smooth. They had a rough pattern on them.

Harry I finished this while I was at work yesterday. I set my polygon grinder up to run on auto and did the work while it was grinding the part I was working on. It took 4 hours for the part to get done.
Once again thanks Harry!

Easy, isn't it Greg. |
As with Harry's and my copy, I would think of using formica on the base (now that you have it finished) to provide a slippery surface on the jig.

My version of Harry's Circle Jig
I made a version of Harry's circle jig and it works really well. I cut the board out to the dimensions Harry laid out. The center to center distance on the rods for the craftsman router that I have is 4".106. I used 8mm rods.
Thanks Harry for the thread you made on this.
