The circle cutting router attachment is used to inlay guitar rosettes and create circular patches. This attachment can be used with any laminate trimming router (Rigid R2400 Laminate trimming router is recommended). This luthier tool is made of high quality clear acrylic and is fully adjustable to accommodate just about any size rosette, sound hole and rosette patch.
The 2-Pi Guitar Rosette Router Attachment can be used to inlay guitar rosettes. The attachment will fit any laminate trimming router. The attachment is fully adjustable to accommodate almost any size rosette or sound hole. The router attachment will install rosettes on classical and acoustic guitars as well as ukuleles.
To mount it to your router remove the plate screwed on to the base of the router. Use it as a template to drill the holes in the right spots on the attachment. Counter sink the holes and screw it to the base of the router. For attaching to routers with closed bases (bases without an open end to the bit) nylon spacers are provided for clearance allowing full adjustment. A full illustrated set of instructions are included.
Currently the recommended laminate trimming router for use with the attachment is the Rigid R2400. This router is open base which is ideal for this attachment and it is variable speed which will extend the life of your bits.

Great easy to use tool, like the plexiglass

At the modest price for this elegant little jig, it earns 5 stars. It might be improved by a screw-driven adjustment feature to “dial in” the position of the pivot pin relative to the router bit by facilitating small pin position adjustments. I may try to add that feature to my base, but I am very happy with it as is and enthusiastically recommend it. It is worth noting that the recommended “open-base” router allows this attachment to be mounted on the router directly, without spacers, because the pivot pin can be slid through the base opening to locate it within the footprint of the router base. (The included spacers permit the pivot pin to slide under a closed-base router when positioning the pin near the router bit.) The direct attachment configuration with an open base router allows the router collet to be positioned close to the workpiece, which, in turn, permits use of short 1/4″ shank, small cutting-diameter router bits like those sold on this site (at very modest prices).

I’m building my first guitar and attached this jig to the StewMac precision base for my Dremel. Worked like a charm!
