For those interested in segmented turning there is a web site (segeasy.com) that has an interesting angle sled and cut off stop that would be easy to make and use.

Look up Wedgie sled (segmented turning) on youtube

When are we going to see one of those at S&T Doyle? I kind of line that lacy looking thing, but purple or orange is attractive. ;)

There are several members on another forum that had made the Wedgie Sled and love it.

Here is another concept but I think I like the wedgie sled best if only Loyd knew how to cut the wedgies.

That youtube stuff is great, but I get started watching and where did the time go?

Lesseee now! Is this a good enough challenge for me to delay the remodeling job at the farm? Don't think so. No! But I can think about it for a while. I haven't done any wood shop projects since starting the remodeling project and I haven't made a segmented vessel for a year or so. The CNC is going to rust if I don't get it going soon. Lessee, hmmmmmmmmmmmm! Back to the remodeling job. :( :(

An experiment worth trying . . . I guess.

If my CNC is as accurate as I think it is, this wedgie should make an 18 segment ring. Ten degrees on each edge. I should have thought to add the screw holes but I didn't think of it until now. Maybe, sometime soon I can cut one out of some good plywood and get someone else to make a vessel with it. At least we can see how accurate a CNC can do angles.

If it proves to be accurate enough, it would be easy enough to make some of them for different numbers of segments.

You don't need screw holes. It is just used to set the angles with and then placed aside. Of course a hole for hanging it on a nail would be good. You could also engrave the number of segments on it. If all else fails a pencil would do the job.
