Have you been broken a Jasper jig?

I know Jasper works great but I've also heard that they break easily. Wondering if I should really just do a diy circle jig.

I broke one by accidentally having my router fall of the bench onto the concrete with the jig installed. Broke it clean in half. My second one has been just fine! If you treat it as a piece of 1/4 inch thick plexiglass, which is what it is, it will provide many years of service.

Mine is nylon, it's taken a few falls not very high mind you. But it's still perfectly fine.

I've knocked mine off the workbench with router attached as well. Just took a chunk out of the side though, so it's still usable. There's nothing particularly fragile about it. If you're less clumsy than dtsdig or myself, you won't have an issue.

I have a Milescraft set-up from Lowes that has given me no issues for a bunch of 15's and 18's

TBS It seems that the Jasper jig usually asked about is the #400 for 1" to about 6"+, it's made of 3/8th's acrylic
There's been a fusion 4 build where the member here used Zerba , iirc, for his front baffles,

it may be what he used, again, with no issues
ands really good looking results
