In the video I had an opportunity to try out and show what you can do with the Carter Accu-Right Circle Cutter. According to it’s description:
“The Accu-Right Circle Cutter by Carter Products lets you cut consistent and accurate circles with your band saw. The extruded aluminum jig lets you cut circles from as small as 2 inches up to 4 feet in diameter (w/ proper side stock support). The jig clamps easily to most band saw tables and provides the ability to set a radius anywhere along the clearly marked tape readout. Simply mark the center of your circle diameter with a nail punch, slip onto the centering pin of the sliding pivot plate and you’re ready to cut a perfect circle.”
In the video it appears as if the circle I cut was left with a jagged edge, and it was, but that had nothing to do with the jig and everything to do with the blade and materials. Specifically I was using a resaw style blade with 3-4tpi on some less than ideal plywood which practically splintered when I looked at it.
Overall, I think it’s a great jig and will be using it in plenty of projects further down the road. Thanks Highland for letting me try it out!
