    You can modify it. Use a spiral upcut bit.

    so one like this? also if you use that will it also drill through the wood, or will you have to go through a pre-existing whole/ drill a hole for it?

    I dont think you can use a fixed base

    you can use a fixed base router to make circles, My fixed base you can still raise and lower 1" Set up your circle jig and see where your router has to start, You have to drill a hole where you are going to start the router, set the router so the bit is showing about 1/4inch, put the router in the hole you drilled, turn on and do a pass.

    Stop the router and adjust to 1/2" do anouther then a hair over 3/4 and uor done.

    This is what I have done and have had no problem, Just dont force the router let it cut the wood its self.

    Jasper Jigs break way too easily, and they are not cheap. I like 1/4" MDF. You can make your own jigs as long as you have the right screws for the base of your router (they often come with them).

    Thats what I did. But i messed up taking into account the width of the bit. my first couple of cuts were a tap off.

    Re: What bit do you use/circle jig ?

    Get a piece of MDF and cut it about the width of the router base and the length should be at least three quarters of the diameter of the circle. Find the proper screws/screw holes on the base of your router and mark on the MDF where it should mount to the base. Drill the holes out for the mounting screws and countersink them so the bottom surface of MDF is flat. Then mount the jig and plunge the router down, and turn it on to put a hole in the MDF right where the bit is. Remove the jig, use the router or a jig saw to cut the hole larger (like 1.5" diameter) to accomodate the shank of the bit and so you can see where you are routing.

    To make the pivot hole, mount the jig to the base of the router and pluge the bit so it is just level with the base/jig. Use a ruler and measure from the outside edge of the bit (if it is fluted, make sure to measure the tip of the flute) and measure to somewhere on the jig and mark it. This should be the exact radius of the circle. Then just drill a hole where you marked and put a pivot pin through the jig and into the work piece.

    How do you manage to break your jasper jigs? I have only broken one, because I knocked my router off the table, lol.
