Project Planning

This jig is made from 1" wide x 1/4" thick MDF board and consists of a center hole and equally spaced 3/16" diameter holes for the locating pins. Use a 3/16" diameter bit in the drill press and center the holes 1" apart down the center of the 1" wide MDF board.

Finding Center

We used our safety guide pin which has a 3/16" diameter end in the appropriate holes for the board you are using and mark the center!
