Circle Jig 2.0

A couple years ago I made a circle cutting jig for my bandsaw. I was never completely happy with the way you had to tighten down the adjustable pin board. You were required to lift the work off of the jig in order to tighten down the pin board. This could cause it to move before it was tightened securely. Recently I came up with a solution that allows you to tighten the pin board from the side without removing the work. I think it’s a huge improvement. The new design is also easier to attach to your bandsaw. You can, if needed, clamp the miter bar down to the bandsaw (there is room with the new design), but I found it unnecessary.
