    Segment kick back

    The drop off was not even with the sled, it is now. Raising blade height really helped. I also added a cheezy cardboard roof which helped some. Photos attached are the seg set-up and a few of the shop at the retirement community where I live.

    Segment kick back

    Thanks, I'll check the ramp height. My shop is a community shop at a retirement community. So, I'll need to wait till morning to check it. The photo does appear to be low. FYI I am going to make a new sled more to the drawings then the one pictured.

    Any help on why small edge length segs are kicking back. They usually hit my length stop and bounce out of sight. Photo of set up is attached.

    Sanding small diameter rings

    I wasn't sure tape would hold, I'll try tape. On the lathe would I use a tool or sanding board? With either method is .010/.015 " oversize enough to work with? Is the side rail on the backing board to compensate for side movement caused by the helix on the sander drum roll, no pun intended.;)
