Adding the Tape

Once the finish has dried, you can add the measuring tape. I used a self-adhesive left to right reading-tape and cut it in two pieces, see Fig. 8. (For a complete hardware kit, see page 31.)

two pieces. The first piece goes in the rabbet in the rear base (B), and is used when cutting-small circles (2 to 26" diameter). The other piece fits in the rabbet in the front base (A), and is used when cutting larger circles (26" to 48" diameter), see Figs. 8a and 8b.

using the jig. In use, the adjustable rail is inserted into the base so the pin end is closest to the saw blade, see box below left. And to cut larger circles, the adjustable rail is turned around so the pin end is away from the saw blade, see box below right.

Cutting Small Circles

Step 1: Slide the Jig Forward. With workpiece resting on the pin, turn on the saw and slide jig slowly forward. Continue until the cleat catches the table.

Step 2: Spin the Workpiece. Now to cut the circle, slowly spin the workpiece in a clockwise direction while applying downward pressure.

Cutting Large Circles

Step 1: Flip Adjustable Rail. For larger circles (more than 26"), remove adjustable rail and flip it end for end. Then slip it in the base and set it for the desired cut.

Step 2: Extra Support. To cut larger circles (over 26") I use the same technique that's used for smaller circles except I add extra support under the workpiece.
