Here is my simple compass for a router. The wholes have a diameter of 30mm and a distance (center to center) of 50mm. It is made of multiplex (I hope it’s not only in germany called like this…).
To set up every radius I want, I made the center whole movable (the little aluminium profile). It has a M4 whole and I use the thorn of a Festool compass for the jigsaws.

Simple and very clever. It looks much simpler to use than my oval jig to make circles.

Nice idea. I like the idea of holding the router with a router guide vs. having to bolt it down to use it.
