Rout a wider range of ellipses!  Zoom

Rockler Large Ellipse Base

Item #: 38410
$37.99
Each In Stock

Overview

This larger base works with the Ellipse/Circle Router Jig for more design flexibility and ellipses with narrower proportions. The larger size increases the maximum difference between the major and minor axes from 8" to 14". In other words, the maximum length of the major axis remains 52", but the minor axis can be up to 14" shorter than with the standard base.

  • Base includes 2 extra dovetail keys with pivot pins.
  • Made of solid phenolic for easy sliding.

The base allowed me to cut...

Mark S from Tomball, TX Posted September 3, 2009
The base allowed me to cut out the coffee table top I needed but the edges were a little rough. Cleaned up pretty quick with a sander. I wish they had a base that would allow me to make even narrower elipses.

The tolerances are not super which...

William H from Hernando, MS Posted August 14, 2009
The tolerances are not super which shows up when you have to cut a piece in 3-4 passes due to thickness. But 5 minutes with a power sander can clean that up and it is still far better than I could every do by hand. It does stick from time to time in elipse mode, but it you keep one hand on the jig and another on the router then you can make it work. I would buy it again. I do like the big base which helps to open up more design options.

Good for Rough Cuts Only

James Posted January 10, 2014
This device and its larger optional base are wonderful in theory but the manufacturing tolerances are so loose that a smooth cut is next to impossible. The dovetail tracks in the bases are of varying widths and depth (they should all be equal) and the same applies to the keys that ride in the dovetails. All this looseness adds up in the positioning of your router which, in my case, can vary by 1/16" to 3/32" depending on where on the ellipse you are cutting. To get an accurate cut I make an imperfect elliptical template using the jig then fix what is wrong with the template and only then cut the good wood. There is no shop in my area that has a CNC router. That was my first choice.
