Actual size shot of bottom

BJ,

To make it easier, I attached is a scan of the bottom plate. I included a ruler so that you could print it life size.

I appreciate any feedback on this.

Thanks,

Dan.

p.s. I'm sorry about the size. Even after cropping it and reducing the pixel count, I couldn't make it any smaller.

Hi Dan

Sorry to say it's not drilled out for the Festool OF1400 router :(
BUT I don't bolt my router to the plate anyway it's a pain,I just drop in a brass guide and go to work, in the snapshot below you will see I put in a plastic insert that has a 3/4" hole for the brass guide and it fits in the hole that comes in the Jasper jig.

You can make a plastic insert part quick and easy with a hole saw, cut out the part and the grind it down on the belt sander to fit just right in the jig then take it back to the drill press and drill hole the 3/4" hole for the brass guide.
I use a small jig to get the outside dia. just right with a 1/4" dowell pin that's clamped to the belt sander on some wood stock and then just turn it and get it down to the right size. (it must be dead on.)
Then I take it to the oscelating sander to get the 3/4" hole dead on.
By using the brass guide way the power cord does not get in the way and you can use a 1/4" ,3/8",1/2" Bits, just drop the router in zero it out set the depth of the cut and go to work, no need to take the router base plate off when you need to cut a cir. :)

-----------------
looks like # 2 base 6 1/2" dia.with one flat side.
#2 and #4 would be 5 5/8" on center of the screw
#1 and #3 would be 2 3/16" on center of the screw
and then you have one extra one on the right that would be
dead on center of the base plate and 5/8" off the side of
base plate.

Hope this helps

Bj :)

Just a note**** I did drill my jig out today so I can now put in 5" and 6" holes quick and easy :), it's quick fix if you want to know how just ask. :)

Model 400 Jasper Tools Circle Jig

This circle jigs fits: Porter-Cable 7539, 7529 & 690, DeWalt 621 & 625, all Sears, Ryobi and Makita plunge routers; Bosch 1613 & 1615, Freud FT2000E, Skil 1825 & 1823, Hitachi M8V, TR12 & M12V, Fein FT-1800 and Elu 177 routers

The Model 400 will cut circles from 1 inch to 7 1/2 inches in diameter, in 1/16 inch increments.
The jig has an easy to read scale that is calibrated for a 1/4 inch router bit.
The Model 400 will generate circles that are smaller than the base of the router.
This requires that some of the pivot holes be located under the router base. A matching centre locating pin is also available, the Model 350.

Bj,

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry for the delay in responding. I had an accident about two weeks ago (sanded off part of my left middle finger with a belt sander). The hand's been bothering me and I haven't posted much.

I'd like to revisit this in a couple weeks.

Dan.

Hi Dan

Sorry to hear that :( I did it also about 14 years ago and it took about a year b/4 I could use it again. :( mine was in a 2HP 2" x 48" comm.belt sander with 60grit and it was so quick that I didn't know it right off so to speak.
Now when I use any belt sander it comes back in my head, thank God not the pain just what I did it with.
I was lucky most of it came back so I could use it again. :) it was my index finger, you lost the good one :) that you use to say hi to the other drivers on the road ways now days. :)

Take it easy :) the pain is for a long time I'm sorry to say.

Bj :)

here is one I have made for the Hand router at work...
very simple and works great, as you can see no expense spared £800 Router, and the rest of the gear used, just whats laying around hahaha
angle iron, studding and plywood few nuts n bolts...

first pic shows basic design.
second is with the router attached
third is a close view showing just how small you could go if wanted, I've place the router in that position so you can see the pivot point.
fourth showing circle, sorry about the blur its of these are taken on my fone...

I managed to cut a 1" 1/4 rad in complete circle without trouble, with this just to see how small it would go.
btw this router stands approx 18" tall and has a base diameter of just over 7"
so I assume this will answer your original question... even tho I made it at work..
