    Interesting, but the jig’s construction is relatively complicated and the cut quality would be coarse, like anything else cut on the band saw. A router circle-cutting jig (Rockler has a very good one) is the only way I cut nearly perfect circles. I use that jig to cut both the outsides and the insides of colonial spinning wheels, which you cannot do with a band saw unless you slice through the wheel (which you wouldn’t want to do).
