:woot: $100 for a router + table + 1/2" bit set

I got a stupid question, can use the 1/4" straight bit from the 1/2" bit set
with the Jasper jig I purchased? I hop this makes sense, this is a 1/2"
bit set (1/2" connection) with a 1/4" straight bit in it, can I use that with
the jasper jig? Or does it need to be a 1/4" straight bit from a 1/4" set.

I think it will work, but I better ask.

yeah you just have to measure off 1/4 since they require 1/4 and your using 1/2 bit

So if I want a 9.25" hole, I select the 9" jig point right?

a 1/4" straight cut with 1/2" shank cuts the exact same hole as the 1/4" straight cut with 1/4" shank....you don't need to make any adjustments

i was about to say that, the 1/4" bit would be in the same spot with either shank, dont make adjustments.

The cutting part is all you care about, not the shaft.

the bit is 1/4" bigger, so you subtract 1/4" from the jig measurement because it eats up 1/4" more wood than the jig is calculated to

it says it right on the ****ing jig instructions

in short: 9.25" hole, put the pin in the 9" jig part

No, I have a bit that has a 1/2" shank, but it's a 1/4" straight bit.
I think they are right it's the same thing. If the bit were a 1/2" straight
bit, the instruction would apply. I think, **** I don't know.

Didnt read but if you just subtract 1/4 from what you need because you now have that much more cutting area.
We did this with my router on your box at the build day.
Good to see you got the tools, pm me if you have any router questions

Don't add or subtract anything with that bit. It's the size that the jig was calibrated for. The cutter diameter is what matters, not the shaft.

If you plan on doing a lot of circle cutting, I would get a 1/4" collet for your router and get a 1/4" spiral up-cut bit. It cuts a lot smoother and lasts MUCH longer.

O so his bit is actually 1/4" just a 1/2" shank, that does not change anything you are good to go.
But yes a spiral carbide tipped blade will do wonders.
