Circle Jig Complete (all you’ll need to make circles from 6″ – 48″+)
The Circle Jig is available as an accessory to the Edge-Guide (called the Circle Jig Attachment), or as a separate complete tool as you see it here.
It pivots from a stainless steel trammel pin and allows easy, precise, and repeatable circle cutting from 6-48 inches in diameter. Longer guide shafts are available for diameters up to 12′ from our Circle Jig Accessories page. There is also the option to eliminate the need for a pilot hole by adding our Vacuum Center Assembly.
The Circle Jig, like our Edge-Guide, features the Micro Fence micrometer dial, which provides a means of measurement and/or adjustment. This makes the jig unique for producing even the most demanding of cuts, like those required when cutting mating radii (as in the case of a surround of solid stock on a circular table top).
An aluminium sub-fence is included with every Circle Jig, allowing it to perform parallel straight cuts as seen in the second ‘thumbnail’ photo above. This set-up is useful for shelving dadoes, drawer dividers, cassette slots for audio cabinets, or even dentil mouldings.
We also include and highly recommend using the Stabilizer Bar accessory for any Circle Jig set-up, but especially when making heavier cuts or larger diameter circles. It maximizes rigidity and affords the most precise cutting possible. We also recommend using the Stabilizer Bar Levelers every 24″ – 30″ to support the stainless steel rods parallel to the work surface.
The Circle Jig is an integral component for other Micro Fence accessories, including the Ellipse Jig and the Clamp Interface Packages. You can view instructions for the Circle Jig here.
Note: If you are ordering the Micro Fence for use with a laminate trimmer, you will also need the appropriate Sub-Base Assembly, which is indicated by an asterisk (*) in the drop down box below.
