Thanks to Oldtiffie's recent post of his radius jig for which he gives design credit to Marv Klotz. More to building it than initially meets the eye but a nice project and a versatile tool.

Centering with a wiggler.

Cutting the Radius using a clamp for a handle.

My own variation. With a holdown clamp (in a misplaced hole) the part and jig can be moved along the X axis to trim parallel sides intersecting the radius.

Thanks for your great idea and trouble to post.
