Page 27: Router Circle Jig
The "Using a Router to Make Wood Wheels" section (page 27) shows a jig from The Shop Notebook article (p. 33). There are two corrections for this jig: (1) The pilot hole for the threaded insert should be about 3/8" in diameter, not 9/16" as printed. (2) Detail "c" shows a steel pin diameter of 1/2". This should be 5/8" to match the main article on page 27. The hole diameter near the upper left is also 5/8". The 5/8"-diameter pin is required to fit the 5/8" hole in the wheel blank. This 5/8" diameter accommodates the outside diameter of the bronze bushing which has a 1/2" inside diameter. Note to reader: If you have already built the circle jig using the 1/2" pin and sizing, you can simply slip the bushing over the 1/2" pin and accomplish the same thing.

The width of part Y (Tray Slats) should be 2 1/4", not 3 1/4" as originally printed. The materials list is correct.

The length of part V (Arm Upright) should be 9 1/2", not 7" as originally printed. The drawing on page 30 correctly shows 9 1/2".

The last board on the illustration (showing parts O, R, V, W, and X) should be 84" long.
