Bandsaw Circle-Cutting JigComments (0)
Cut perfect circles and arcs with this simple setup.
By Andy Rae
Make perfect bandsawn circles and arcs with this jig, thanks to an adjustable pivot pin that guides the work as you rotate it through the blade. This jig can tackle circles up to 6 ft. in diameter–a nice size for a tabletop. The sled lets you move the workpiece straight into the blade as you begin sawing a circle–a distinct advantage over other jigs that require you to first notch the work at the cutline to provide entry clearance for the blade. As a bonus, the jig accepts a platform for sawing arcs, allowing you to shape all sorts of items, ranging from curved rails and corner panels to custom trim.
