Had a project to make some speaker cabinets out of an African hardwood - expensive stuff and no room for errors. This circle guide kit performed like a champ although I cut test circles on scrap to really dial in the radius. I was working with 8/4 and used a 1/2 bit to first cut the rabbets where the speaker mounts and then a really long 1/2 inch bit to cut out the centers. The wood was really hard so it was a slow going process but the circle guide kit gave me really accurate results.

    This is one of the best tools I have. And I have plenty. Add in the fact that the price is well within the means of most, it's a no brainer. Yes, could you make your own jig? Sure. In fact, I have. But, this tool is so well made and so versatile, it pays for itself in no time. Plus it gives you everything else you need in order to cut the circles. From the bit for the pilot hole to the straight cut router bit. Everything you need is in there. I really wish I had found this device sooner. Buy it. You won't regret it. Well done Milescraft.

    Excellent way to cut circles with precision. Easy to use and set up. Makes perfect with little effort. The circle jigs are made of quality materials and are opaque so you can see the work area of the wood you are cutting. The unit is easy to attach and remove from the router. The readouts are easy to see on the beams and the beams rare made of aluminum. Adjustments are easy and im very happy with the performance of the kit. Circles up to 51" and as small as 10" is pretty awesome.

    I know this is the type of jig you can probably build yourself, but having a kit does make it easy. Not to mention it does come with a router bit so it's a pretty decent deal. You'll have to take a moment to read through the instructions but it is fairly intuitive. I had it mated up to my Bosch 1617 router with no issue.. The diameter measurements are easy to read and dial in. There is a little bit of finesse required to get the base locked into the guide (the Millennium Falcon looking piece). I found it a little tricky to see the alignment arrows and the plastic doesn't slide super easy especially when things are dusty. However once you're locked and loaded you can cut perfect circles all day long. I will say it's not hard to setup but it does take a little bit of time to get everything ready. For one off cuts I'd probably reach for my hole saws first on anything 4" and under despite the router likely giving a cleaner edge. However for off sizes or anything larger this is a great option.

    This circle cutting guide has all the necessary parts to cut circles in workable materials from 10" to 52" with the large circle guide and from 1.5" to 12" with the small circle guide. This guide is meant to be used with a standard router and the face plate included with the set adapts to most router brands. There is a set guide included to insure proper centering of the face plate and once the face plate is installed it is a simple matter to snap together and tighten the other components to allow a perfect circular cut of the desired dimension. There are measurement scales on both the large and small circle guide arms showing the circle diameter to be cut. There is also an indicator on the screw down set which indicates inside and outside cut dimensions - very handy. A router bit specific to the device is also included. Once the face plate is mounted on the router the base plate and rotation arm is simply snapped into place and the cut is made around a small centering screw. The results are clean and precise. See the pics.

    For years I have used a bandsaw and homemade jig for cutting wood or plywood circles for projects and normally got good results. The only problem was the rough edge left from the bandsaw blade required sanding. Since I already owned the router offset base and found it pretty handy, I ordered the kit for the circle cutting jigs. As others have pointed out it does a very nice job cutting perfect circles and the edge is very clean and doesn’t need much sanding. I own several routers and used a big beefy plunge router with a depth adjustment knob. The router rotates with little effort and almost no vibration while I turn the adjustment knob to lower the bit on every pass. The offset base is gives you better control for edge routing or anytime the router base isn’t fully on the surface of the wood.

    This Circle Guide Kit is AWESOME! My grandson and I cut a 12" circle out of 3/4" plywood a few weeks ago. He traced the circle onto the wood. Then he cut it out with a band saw and finally finished by smoothing the edge with a sander. It took about 30 - 45 minutes. With this Circle Guide Kit, I just cut a 12.5" circle out of the same wood in less than 15 minutes, including setup. This kit has a small guide that will cut from 2" to 12.5". This is what I used above. It has a large guide that will cut circles from 10" to 51" just as easy. With either guide, attach the small set screw, as instructed, into the wood where the center of the hole will be. Adjust the guide to the desired diameter of your cut. Lock your router into the guide. Make several passes around your circle, about 1/4" deeper each pass. Be certain to allow for the tip of the router bit to safely pass through the back side of the board. This kit also has an offset guide for routing smaller boards with better stability.
