This is a device to help the position of the router bit tip on the work area. I often work on small projects and would like to find the precise cut point( like cutting detail on the pre-cut area).
X marks the spot is cut with mdf 12mm , on the base a clear plastic sheet(like acetate film) with target marked.
I slide the clear bottom sheet under the spindle cover and curve on the mdf snugly fits showing the X mark
I use this device along with ;jog mode; to accurately identify the target area and adjust the art on the canvas - I confirm the correct position before calculating the gcode.
I will post the pictures
Project file: make sure the circular cut diameter is 100mm so it fits out side spindle cage bottom.
