My router/jasper jig had a short fall today. Broke the jasper jig in half, bummer.

A friend owns a CNC machine shop, I showed him the jig. He could easily build me one out of 1/4 inch aluminium, fall-proof. He said it would take some time to write a program to copy it exactly, then maybe 15 minutes to machine. Mine was the 2 1/4-18 3/16" version. Would probably make it 20".

Any interest?

Thanks for the interest guys,

Would make it in increments of 1/16th of a inch. 22" max diameter? The increments would be etched into the jig.

Don't know yet on cost, depends on how many are wanted. My The Jasper jig can be found for $40. Somewhere lower.

Marv,

You wouldn't happen to know the Wandry clan?, Dyersville natives.

I'd be interested too. Might as well make it big enough to do endcaps up to 25-26". Some folks will be building 24" diameter based sonosubs.

Kevin, I graduated with Geri Wandrey, nice girl.
Oh and I'm still interested in the jig.;)

I would go up to 26" diameter. I built my sonosub with 24" diameter tube, so my two outer end caps are 26" diameter. I have a suggestion: etch the numbers into the TOP of the jig - that would be really convenient so you could set the jig down onto the pin and be 100% certain it's in the correct hole without having to pre-mark it with a pencil. The smallest dia markings would still have to be on the bottom since they'd be covered by a router on top.

Tip: be sure to check for patent infringement - I don't know if the Jaspers are patented or not.

Hank,

I was thinking of the patent infringement thing too! BTW, you at work today or logging on from home? Shouldn't you be working on those line arrays? Done with the veneer? Where are my pics?

We thought of patent infringement also. I'll find out what the patent is on. I'm sure we could design around it.

We'll have a prototype within a couple weeks with all the suggested features.

I'm also interested.

Maybe everone that's interested could let you know what router they have or are looking at getting. No need to have all those holes for every router made on it if no one uses that type.

I also agree the #'s should be on top. Etched preferable so they can't rub off.

I've been going to get a jasper for a couple months so I can start my sub project, but haven't gotten around to it. I would love something a little more sturdy. When do you anticipate knowing the cost for these things?

BTW, I have a Dewalt 621 and a cheapo craftsman fixed base.
