      I think they are called conversations on this forum. If you go to your profile there is a "Start Conversation" selection. You can invite one or more people to the conversation. I'll send you one to see if it works.

    have some oak that's 1/2 thick but naturally it is 7/16 thick. My question is do I set the segmented pro at a thickness of 0.5 or 0.375 ? Thank you in advance. Bob

    I would use 1/2 inch. Do it a second time and set it at 3/8 to see if there is any real difference.

      Woodsmith. Don't confuse wood thickness of your stock with what you use in the software. The SP ring thickness would be what you want the final thickness of the rings to be for your vessel.

    Hello Lloyd, I'm making great strides getting started on segmenting! At the show Lyle mentioned sourcing wood in 3/8 thicknesses from either Ebay or another online site. Can you give me a couple options that are reliable for ongoing projects? Good pricing would be nice! Thanks

    Hi Bob, I recently purchased Segmentation Pro, Woodturning pro and Lamentation Pro. I have tried to make sense out of them but since I have no experience using anything like this I having trouble getting it together. I have watched some tutorials but they all seem geared to people who have some experience.
    Thank you,
    Doug Wininger

    If you are coming by or thru Iowa on your way to "Segmented Woodturners bi-annual symposium that will be held October 12-14 in St. Louis, MO." I sure would like to meet you and show me some things on the computer program.

    PS I do not remember how to send a PM here

      Hi Juansierra, There is a very good write up in Malcolm Tibbetts book "The Art of Segmented Woodturning" on page 161. This what I used when constructing my sunrise ring. If you go with it remember to make extra segments as it is easy to mess up during construction. Good luck. Love to see a picture when you finish.
