      Thanks for the question. This is our primary resource for helping you to build a circle cutting jig for your bandsaw. These will vary depending on the size of your particular table size, but the concepts should be the same for any bandsaw. Let us know if you have any specific questions on this as your build a jig for your table.

    Searched many circle cutting jigs on the web and although I wont be building this one, you made one very excellent point that all the others missed. Placement of the center pin, just in front of the blade. Makes ALL the difference. I am not yet comfortable with dovetails (for the track) and have not setp a router table for ding this type of worlk otherwise I would build this one. Thanks

    Where are the plans for this jig? Is there a different video somewhere that shows how he builds this jig?

    Why did you call your test cut perfect when the blade left the wood at one point, leaving a flat spot?

    I like to keep a wide blade in my bandsaw for resawing and straight cuts. It there a limit to the radius that can be cut with certain blades?

    Is there any way to have a copy of the plan for me to built one for my small Craftsman band saw. I will be appreciated. It is a great idea.

      Hi Samuel. Hello and thanks for your question. We do not have any materials for this project other than the video, but hopefully you can adapt the design to your bandsaw by making some measurements on your table and adjusting dimensions as necessary to ensure a good fit.
      Thanks

    Outstanding idea. Any possibility to have a copy of the plan. And the one for the route as a player.

      Dear Michael,

      Thank you for your patience. In regards to your question-

      Yes, you do lock the Slider when cutting the circle.

      Sincerely,
