harrysin 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.

grbrico 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 used the aluminum because I had some left from where I made a deer stand last year LOL. I really wanted to use a piece of UHMW but didn't want to buy some right now.

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!

Thanks Harry for the thread you made on this.

jw2170 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.
