I had read the review before...

Ben S from Morganfield, KY Posted December 13, 2010
I had read the review before I ordered. Don was 100% right about his review. I had some circle up to 30" to cut and I didn't want to cut with jigsaw, so I bought the circle jig. I was using 3/4" ext plywood for material, I found that you have to center punch your center point so that it will fit over the pivot point that's on the jig. I went to Carter Products and watched their video on installation, follow their instructions and you will enjoy this product. I would like to see more than 3 sliding support blocks in their product package, for bigger circle etc. Overall a good product.

I justified the attachment for cutting...

W J S from Mill Spring, NC Posted June 4, 2011
I justified the attachment for cutting lathe turnings from rough stock. I also got a new Olson 1/2" 3 tpi blade. The piece of stock I was cutting is red oak about 5" thick and somewhat wet still. I had no particular problem with the supplied center as others have had maybe because the piece was heavy. The problem I had is the blade wandered and bound. Maybe the 1/2" blade is to wide ~ 5" radius ... or maybe it is too hard or two wet??? I will look for a more suitable blade. I also had to use a tool to tighten the wing nuts that attach the center to the bandsaw table because hand tight with the heavy piece the tool moved. Once I used the tool it stayed in place. So the jury is still out on thick wet wood???

As Don said, and others agreed,...

Russ A from Big Bear Lake, CA Posted May 29, 2011
As Don said, and others agreed, the product out of the box is not satisfactory. Not only is the pivot point too small for some applications, the point on mine was so loose it kept vibrating down. I ended up drilling and tapping another set screw on the side of it to hold it in place. The shuttle that holds it was also loose and "sloppy." I ended up putting Locktite on the threads after adjusting it and it now slides within acceptable tolerance. I wonder why these things have not been addresses by Carter after all this time? Nonetheless, a decent product once it has been tuned up.
