Easy and accurate, this jig now adjusts from 6"-diameter to a small 2" cut for ukuleles.

Another innovation from StewMac
The Soundhole and Rosette Routing Jig is a quality machined tool, designed to be used with our Precision Router Base and works with your Dremel. Router base and rotary tools are not included.

  • Solid aluminum and brass parts
  • Adjusts from 2" to 6"-diameter cuts (50.8mm to 152.4mm)
  • Indexing scale to quickly set routing diameter
  • 3/16" registration pin for perfectly concentric circles
  • Mounting screws and instructions included

How it works
Attach the jig to the router base, then mount your Dremel or Foredom tool. Insert the registration pin through the center of the uncut soundhole, and into your work surface. Place the jig on the pin. Set the diameter of cut with the adjusting screw, and lock it down. The router base adjusts the cutting depth. Rout your rosette rings first, then cut out the soundhole.

For the cleanest cut when routing tonewoods, we recommend the Carbide Downcut Bits.

Worked great and even allowed me to reroute and replace purfling in the same channel of a rosette.

Could be improved

The jig works extremely well. The only thing missing is a coated bottom. The one I received leaves marks like pencil lead when you rotate it against the top. I used two-inch clear packing tape to solve this problem with mine.

How did I ever live without?

Was immediately modded upon taking it out of the box to cut circles up to 161mm. But otherwise I must say this tool has astonished me with it's precision, ease of use, and utility.

Well made, precision tool

Worth every penny. The quality of materials and workmanship show in the performance of this tool. It cut perfectly concentric rings for sound hole trim and a perfectly centered hole on two sound boards in 20 minutes. No practice cuts required after the initial set up. The scale for circle diameter is very accurate. I purchased the dedicated router base and circle cutting attachment from Dremel but it wasn't nearly accurate enough to do this type of work. This is a no-brainer purchase. Every guitar shop should have one of these.

Takes all the heartache out of creating perfect rosettes every time.

This rosette jig along with the precision router base worked great to make a perfect cut for my rosette. The fine dial lets you shave a little at a time for a great fit. Couldn't do the rosette's without this.
