    Has anyone built a bandsaw jig similar to the accu slicer? I have a Mini Max S45N bandsaw with a unique size miter slot (12.5MM) & the accu slicer is out the question because of the miter slot size.

    I have some ideas I want to attempt, but thought I would see if anyone here has already attempted making a homemade jig similar.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    I have not made a jig. I generally just use the band saw fence to cut the rings/slab. Then run them through a drum sander to thickness and get rid of saw marks.

    I use a tenoning jig for splitting rings and cutting layers such as when doing a bowl from a board. Not my idea however, "borrowed" the idea from Wayne Miller;) (current president of Segmented Woodturners) upload_2017-8-7_12-58-4.jpeg

    Thanks. The thread on splitting rings was exactly what I needed to jog the brain! Especially the pictures of jigs.
