Lowe's carries something that will work. It is not nearly as good as the jasper jig. It based on these bars that slide through the base of the router. If interested I can tell you where it is located within the store.

you can't go wrong with a home-made one.

^ exactly... just screw your router to a board, use a spiral upcut to plunge through it, use a straight edge to draw a line the length of the circles radius from the outside edge of the cut, drill a hole there and mark it, then screw it to whatever you want to cut a circle in,

plunge, spin, and taa da!! perfect circle.

If you still want to purchase one, partexpress has a combo deal for 2 of them. Good deal too.
