Thanks for your reply. I've got one of those from Screwfix but the problem is I need to use the piece I'm cutting out. I'm cutting larch planks (16" x 3/4"). Had hoped to use a holesaw but if none available it'll have to be a router.
Hi Dave, decided to come back after saying I wouldn't but life ain't predictable and things changed and anyway I missed this place
Sig is back where it belongs and will continue to be repeated forever more, catching a few out here and there :wink:
I have a solar powered heater fitted to the tree I'm under, the solar panel is located in Cuba, fed by fibre optics directly to my location, sheer bliss!
Back to reality, briefly, I've been making ornamental wheelbarrows as garden planters. Should have said the disc of wood I wanted to cut was infact the wheel of the barrow but you know me, always going the long way round to explain the purpose of the question :roll:
And yourself Dave, been making anything interesting ?
Just made a wall clock surround about 140mm diameter from some timber washed up on the beach. Made a simple trammel with some skinny ply screwed to the router base and a dowel to locate the various circle sizes. Worked very well. Other methods - band saw with circle guide, rough cut with jig saw and finish off on sander with the centre firmly located.
Thanks all, I'll have a go with the router and a home made jig and if that fails I'll try the Trend jig.
Currently using a holesaw to cut the 6" wheel for the barrows I'm making at present but will need to increase the wheel size for the next size up and eventually I hope to make full size barrows with iron band around wheel to prevent splitting, absolutely no reason at all why I can't do it, just finding the time
