One way to make a perfect circle

Disc-sand the workpiece with this quick-and-easy jig

Here's a circle-sanding jig you can make in no time flat. First, screw together the jig, shown in the drawing below, from a couple of pieces of particleboard or plywood. Then follow the three steps shown in the photos, below.


Disc sanding jig

Position the jig on your disc sander's table with the cleat contacting the table's right-hand corner, but about 2" away from its left-hand corner. With a single clamp, secure the jig's base to the table. As shown in photo 1.


Fasten the oversize bandsawn top to the jig's base with a #8×1-1/4" flathead wood screw. The top overhangs the edge of the jig's base that faces the sanding disc by about 1/4". As shown in photo 2.


Switch on the sander. Pivot the jig until the cleat contacts the sander's table along its full length. Rotate the top against the disc. Keep the jig's base and cleat tight against the sander's table. As shown in photo 3.

to print or save. Look at the row of icons at the top. The grayed one second from the right is for printing. Left click on it. You will get a page with an ad at the top and the project below. The ad will not appear when you print. Right click on the page and you will get your print dialog. Select the printer you want and go. If you want to save, change your printer to pdf. If you don't have a print to pdf option, search on the web for and install "cute pdf" software first.

Download Irfanview software (free). Do a screen print of the page and paste it in the software. Crop it as you wish, then save.

Having same problem with this plan as with #2, won't print. It shows no way to download any PDF of it so it can be stored, as well as printed. Becoming a major discouragement.
