    Hello

    You can built the Seg-Easy sled extremely cheaply with a few pieces of MDF. Then if you have one a 30/60/90 triangle will set your sled for 12 segments and a 45 degree triangle will set it for an 8 sided ring. These are very cheap to obtain so you can try it out without buying too much. A 12...

    Transfer a cutlist to iPad?

    If you took a screenshot as a .jpg file I'm sure the iPad will open it. If it is in excel your iPad should have an icon called Numbers that will open that as well.

    Gaps Between Segmented Rings

    Yes, Cole Jaws and Jumbo Jaws are the same just a different vendor. I also just use a screw and not the rubber bumpers. It will hold rings down to about 1/4 inch thick and still be below the surface.

    Another non-segmented turning I just finished.

    You did justice to a great piece of wood in both pictures.

    Gaps Between Segmented Rings

    As I do not have a drum sander I will mount a ring in my Jumbo Jaws (Coles Jaws) and flatten it with a sanding board. Sometimes I will even take just a small cut with my 1" round nose scraper if there is any unevenness. Like Mike said put some pencil lines on the ring and ensure that they are...

    Gluing up individual segmented pieces.

    A little bit of fussing to get the circle just the right size, too tight and the segments won't squeeze together. I use my disc sander and a jig to spin the circles round and adjust until they are just right. I do keep them for future project as they can always be made smaller :)

    Gluing up individual segmented pieces.

    This is an example of how I do the centre circle. I also use a piece of MDF to sandwich the ring and clamp it to make it flat so the centre circle needs to be thinner than the segments. You can search "Closed Segment Project 1441" on this site that showed my process. Might not be the best way...

    Gluing up individual segmented pieces.

    My go to is the Hose clamp. Mine vary in size from a few inches up to 12 inches. Some have been chained together to give me the size I want. These work well for gluing full rings and if you need to 1/2 rings as well. I have found if I am gluing very small segments ( 60 or more) that with the...

    extending the plunger on the Stomper

    Some taller vases that I have done were certainly done in two sections, one was even three sections. Another that I did that was 12 inches tall I turned as I built each layer and sometimes adding two layers. I normally add each ring on the lathe so it does tie up the lathe while glue dries. I...
