I want to make some various sized wooden knobs by drawing a circle, marking evenly spaced points around the circumference, drilling holes at those points and cutting the whole thing out on the band saw. Can any one tell me an easy way to mark those points evenly on various sized circles? Thanks in advance for your help. Woody
I'm not quite sure I understand what the end result is that you are looking for from your description. What do the holes have to do with the "cutting out"?
In any case, decide how many holes you want on the circumference, divide that number into 360°, use a protractor to mark the points on the circumference, and your done.
Find the center of the circle, then mark out the points using the protractor based on the number of holes and the angles you determined.
If you are cutting the knobs out to be hexagon, septagons, octagons, etc., just connect the dots.
Hope this helped. If not post a description of the end result configuration and we may be able to get you there.
Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
