    Bandsaw Circle Jig - Quickey Version 2

    Well after a little test driving, this configuration may be worth refining. I used an old miter gauge 'tongue', an oak runner and an old piece of melamine.


    The two screwheads act as a stop. There is enough overhang at the front of the saw that I just hold the jig in place by leaning against it.

    Drill a hole in the blank to fit the "adjustable positioner" screwhead

    The runner allows me to slide into the initial cut. The screwhead 'stops' . . . well, stop me.

    Took me a minute or two to figure out how you were doing it, but I get it now, and it's a great approach.

    So...why the sudden fascination with round things lately Glenn? I know something that'll fix that.
