    Smart item

    I've had one since early 1990s. Used to keep mine in my car so if I went out on a job I always had a handy vice if I needed one.

    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...
