How to make a Top Mount or Under Mount Joystick Jig

<< < (2/12) > >>

Now we need to cut out the inside of this square.  Be sure to leave about 1/8

Here are the lines I will cut with my jigsaw.  I'm really just trying to take out the bulk of the waste so my router wont have to work so hard.

Now flip the thing over and get out a flush trim bit.  I put my joystick jig ontop of some 2x4s to give me clearance underneath and clamped it all down to my workbench.

Let the bearing of the router bit ride against the 2" strips underneath.

viola  :o

I trimmed up my piece's outside edges to a nice even square with enough room for my clamps.

Try out a test cut.

You can see the offset here to account for the bushing.
