Review

Rockler’s circle-cutting jig works great with compact routers (less than 1-1/2 hp) for cutting diameters from 6" to 36".
When assembled, this setup proves easier to use than a similar jig attached to a larger router. It adjusts easily, and doesn’t scratch the workpiece when routing circles in multiple passes. Made of durable 1/4"-thick phenolic, the jig comes predrilled for the plunge bases of the Bosch Colt PR20EVSPK, DeWalt DWP611PK, and Porter-Cable 450PK compact routers. You use the router’s subbase screws for mounting. (You can drill holes to accommodate different routers.) With the jig you get two pivot pins: one with a 1/8"-diameter stub to slip into a hole you drill in the workpiece’s bottom (where it will remain unseen), and a sharp-pointed pin for times where you can’t drill a pivot hole. I prefer the stub for its positive “lock” position; the pointed pin sometimes slipped from its location on hardwoods, but held dependably in softwoods. —Tested by Bob Hunter, Tools Editor
