Here's something I could use help with. I plan on making the front of the box about 2.5" thick so I can counter sink the sub in 7/8" and have 1.5" to mount it to. Any idea on how I'm going to cut a circle through 2.5" of solid wood?
First off let me say this looks like it may turn out to be the best build on this forum with the way you are going about making the box. Magico makes a lot of there cabinets this way and they are one of the most expensive and best sounding speakers around Magico Mini II pic
As far as the cuts through 2.5" you might need to first make the counter sink with your router and a Jasper jig 300J
You can't use the normal Jasper jig as the largest circle is on the 200 or 270 is a little over 18".
I don't know if there is a 1/4" router bit that is long enough to cut through 2.5" and I am not sure from a safety standpoint that it is a good idea even if there is. I would first make the 7/8" counter sink for the driver first then make a circle jig for a jig saw to make the driver cut-out. I did see a that Milwaukee
makes a circle jig for jig saws and I know Bosch has one as well but the bosch version I hears is bad. I remember another thread somewhere that someone just made there own jig saw circle cutter but I can't remember were I saw that.
I hope that helps some.
