Having misplaced the registration pin and not find a source for another, I tried a small pop rivet. It fit to a tee. I cut the pop rivet pin to the length I wanted and drill a guide hole in the workpiece to suit. Just don't pop the rivet and voila. The base of my router is not flat surfaced either and the rim of rivet pin stops the whole thing from sliding through.
To avoid Joe M's problem, I think I'll add a 1/8" plate to the thing and just drill the mounting holes I need for my router.

This fixture makes accurate circles, but be aware that it is very fragile. It may work better on a router other than my Fraud FT-2000E, which only uses two screws to hold jig to router base. Pivot pin gets stuck in 1/8 inch hole in material other than MDF or similar material. I was routing out some Purpleheart for my tweeters for a new speaker project, and on the final cut, I pulled up on the router, and the fixture pulled right through the two screws. I advise using some dry lubricant on the pivot pin during use!

This jig works great,but! I installed mine on the same router shown in the photo. I followed the instructions and removed the factory installed base, then installed the Jasper jig. The problem occured when using the registration pin. The bottom of the PC router is a hollow web. When lowering the jig on the workpiece. it would push through the jig. To retirieve the pin the jasper jig had to be removed. In order for it to work I had to reinstall the factory base with the Jasper jig on top of it.

Works well. Designed for use with a plunge router, but I used it just fine with a fixed base router.

I like this product but it broke at the 7 inch mark the first time I used it. The smaller circles work very well. The base plate needs to be stronger or wider so the edge doesn't break.
