Micro Fence offers new Ellipse Jig


For woodshops that need to rout ellipses for oval windows, tabletops, furniture elements and other components, Micro Fence introduces the redesigned Ellipse Jig.

“Using the company’s renowned fine-adjustment controls, this production-grade jig essentially eliminates the math involved in cutting an ellipse and reduces everything to just two dimensions – the radius of the largest measurement, and the distance between two centers,” the company explains.

“The jig consists of a beautifully cast aluminum base (called an axes plate) that supports cross-shaped tracks. A pair of T-slot slides are designed to glide along the tracks, and the size of the ellipse is determined by the distance between the two centers of the jig. The magic here is how easy it is to set up, and the incredibly reliable engineering.”
