    I have tried using the "perfect circle" thinggy that came with my Rotozip. Havent been able to cut a circle worth a crud with it yet. Maybe I ought to brake it out and try again. Its been a while since I've used it.

    Re: rotozip

    I don't use my rotoslip for cutting circles. It takes too freakin long. Recently broke my circle cutting jig, and tried the rotoslip for cutting circles. It didn't work out too well. I would guess you would need to go real slow and steady to cut a good circle with it. I'm just to impatient to wait Jasper circle jig + plunge router > rotoslip by a long shot.

    X 100!

    It has actually gotten to the point that I have gone back to using my jigsaw because the darn rotozip eats bits like nobody's business (the rotozip bits are expensive as hell with regards to the minimal amount of time that they last). If you are contemplating the purchase I would advise against getting one. Instead, you should get a good plunge router with a circle jig and be happy.
