Buttons for Jig

From: $8.00



This is a set of 3 “buttons” that can be threaded into any hole on the off-set plate of the jig.  They are 3/4″, 1 1/4″ and 2″ diameter.  I made the pendant, earring and small disc and was amazed how easily the exact design came out on all 3 sizes.  With the mandrel in the center hole and the button in the #2 off-set hole, I did the 1st cut, moved my tool slightly to the left and made a 2nd cut.  Then threaded the button into the #4 off-set hole and did the 3rd cut, moved the tool to the left and did the 4th cut.  I did the same thing with the 1 1/4″ and 3/4″ button and duplicated the design perfectly.    

These “buttons” can be used in the center hole with the mandrel in any off-set hole; the “buttons” in an off-set hole with the mandrel in the center hole; or the mandrel and buttons in off-set holes for even more design possibilities.  

Jerry Sowers, IN, designed the button concept as an addition to the Off-Center Jig.
