Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea!This little baby really is amazing! I just made my cutouts over the weekend for a diy nearfields project that I am doing. I did the port, tweeter, woofer, and even the 1" hole for the speakon connectors and this thing did it all with amazing accuracy and speed. I used a 1/2" cutter for the insets of the speaks so the finished product will have the speakers flush with the face of the cabinet. Did that first, and then did the internal cut out with a 1/4" cutter like it is intended to be used with.A few things to keep in mind..1/2" is the widest cutter that will work with this jig. And that takes you right up to the internal edge of the jig. And you have to adjust the math when using the 1/2" obviously because all the pin hole measurements labeled on the jig are for the intended 1/4" cutter. No biggie..The pin supplied with the jig is very short and I didn't use it.. I used 2 extra 1/8" drill bits I had laying around. This extra length allows you to send the "pin" much deeper into the scrap wood below giving it a stronger more rigid pivot point. I used 2 layers of scrap wood below the actual piece I was milling. Using 2 1/8" bits allows you to set up both speaker faces on the workbench at once and you can do all the set and milling for BOTH woofers at once. Both tweeters at once, etc.. My logic was that this would make everything dead even from one speaker to the other.. Just my logic though, but it seemed to work.. :)Anyway, get this thing if you doing any speaker building. Also, Parts Express has the best price ANYWHERE on this thing. So cheap, you have no excuse not to buy it even if you are only doing one set of speakers..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beefier than you may think... but not perfectThis is made from a relatively thick acrylic, thicker than the base that would normally come with a router. It also has holes with 1/16" increments. It's great, and for what it is, works beautifully. My problem? It still broke. Yes. I somehow managed to chip off part of the outer edge making one of the holes unusable. But I was stupid, so I can't exactly ding the product for that. What I can ding it for are 1: I felt it was better to drill with a 7/64" drill bit rather than a 1/8" for stability, and 2: The little pin it came with to hold the jig to the wood may end up falling off the jig in either direction from the vibrations. It needs to be longer. Otherwise, it works beautifully.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great butThe pin that comes with the jig is 3/4" long, after putting it in the jig there is ~ 1/2" protruding. If I am cutting 3/4" wood I need a pin long enough to stick into the material under the wood I am cutting. This is demonstrated in the video. The pin in the video is way longer than the one that comes with this jig. Anybody know where to get a longer pin?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the trick.The device is easy to use, the mounting holes matched up perfectly with an old router I borrowed from my GF's Dad, and it enabled me to easily create a 1/8" deep recess and through hole for a bass port.I have the piano black (high gloss) cabinets from Dayton Audio and I used a Diablo 1/4" down spiral bit that produced a perfect top edge, leaving no chips on the gloss finish. That is a really good router bit, I bought it at Lowes.The Jasper guide is meant to work with a 1/4" (cutting diameter) bit. If you use any other size cutting bit you will need to perform math to find the correct guide hole.My only qualm is that lining up the hole on the guide with the center guide pin can be a pit of a pain when positioning on the actual piece to be cut. That however does not change the fact that I, who never used a router before, created 6 perfect circles on my first go.Recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but the guide pin can fall outIt's good and unlike the prior review said it works great for cutting small holes in mdf. I've done under 2" diameter hole with no problem. If you try to cut all the way through mdf without taking your time you're going to have problems, but if you do 3 or 4 passes it'll be perfect. The only problem is the guide pin gets pulled out often if you dont drill your guide holes big enough. The instructions say 1/8" but you need to make them slightly bigger otherwise your pin will pull right out when you lift your router.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's tricky and a lot of MDF is wasted.I've had this for over two years now and I still use it, but the guide pin likes to get pushed in to the jig or get stuck in the wood. It is also VERY tricky to make smaller holes. It is much better with larger ones, but the smaller the hole you make, the greater the chance of burning the wood, and creating a odd lip where you first plunge. I've worked directly with the company, and they have great support, but I wish the could improve the product and make it so the guide pin can't work its way in the jig. Perhaps a thicker jig with holes that are capped off locking the pin in. Seeing as not too many products are on the market, this works and it gets the job done. It just isn't as easy or clean as it looks.

Jasper Circle Jig Model 400

will this fit the bosch 1617?

Asked by: jalng63
Unfortunately, I don't have a Bosch 1617 here to test. However, I have seen references online to this same question, and it appears that the Jasper jigs will, indeed, fit your Bosch 1617 router.
