I use a compact router both cordless and corded the corded being ridgid with this product and works great. i like the cordless without the cord being in the way.
You have to have pivot point in center but it’s just a screw hole. Just fill hole after cutting circle out.
One trick i have used is a sacrificial board under the piece you want to cut. The router bit will completely cut the board on top, which is the board you want to endup with, but the bottom board is only cut superficially and will still keep the center pin in place. If the cuts are always the same diameter, there is no limit on how many times you can use the sacrificial board, as long as the cut depth remains the same. If the circles vary in diameter and option is to move the center of the cuts to several positions on the sacrifial board, but there is a limit on how many random diameter cut one can be achieved before the targeted board or planck is not perpendicular to the router bit. I hope this helps. I wish I had an image ready to upload.
As long as the router plate has mounting options IE screw attach point it should , I use a milwaukee cordless that works . Being smaller I sometimes have issues pushing larger patterns. I do like no cord that gets hung up with my larger routers.
This products attach plate should attach to mounting options that are almost unlimited. I have 5 different routers new and old which all work no issues. Milwaukee has a standard mounting pattern which this product accepts
You would need to check the mounting holes provided with the circle jig. I know they had several holes available for different routers, although I used a larger plunge router, i didn’t try my square base trim router.
No only works with the Rigid 2900 series.
No it will not work as is with a dremel .. You may be able to get a attachment plate to make it work as such . but out of the box no .
Work yes or not? Thanks.
It does not fit the fixed base that comes with the compact router - it is too small. The plunge base for the compact router has a larger base that you can fit to this kit base. The holes on the plunge router base will not line up with the precut holes on the kit base but a reasonably adept woodworker can easily drill a new hole or two in the kit base and it will work fine.
