Ring Centering and Clamping

Redesigned my ring centering and clamping fixture. It now has two air cylinders. The one below functions like the stomper and the one on top is a press for gluing. It also utilizes a longworth chuck. I will be doing a demo on this in St Louis next Oct.

That's a great idea! I got an air cylinder yesterday for the stomper function but never thought of using one for clamping. Aligning the rings is the toughest part of segmenting for me. I think I'll steal this idea! :)
