I made my stomper from the video. Like some others, I was a little worried about the "play" in the stomper because of the sprinkler mechanism. I am using it today for the first time and any of my concerns are gone! This thing works great! I am so happy I decided to make it.....very accurate and time to glue cut down by 90%! If you're doing rings you need to make this thing TODAY!
I liked your recent video about the Christmas ornament. However, it says it uses the 16 segment seg-easy plate. I checked your website and you sell a 18, 24, 36, and 48 segment plate but no 16 segment plate. However, if I count the pieces in the video it is clearly a 16 segment plate. I have the 24 segment (and will use that instead) but would like to order the 16 and 32 segment plates. I just wanted to double check that you have the 16 segment plate for sale even though it isn't on the website.
I didn’t realize that there was still information about the 18-segment plate. I dropped it in favor of the 16-segment plate because you can divide it by 4 which makes it more versatile. I have updated the table so it now corresponds to the catalog offerings of the store.
Just a quick question from a Newbie. I have been looking at the Stomper and the SegEasy template plates. Is it possible to adapt all of these to the Stomper, or do you also offer templates for 18 segments as a lot of the plans I see use 18 segments
Since Lloyd sells the Segeasy plates, I don't know if he had them modified for the Stomper. You could ask
Jerry B. www.jerrybennettart.com. , if the plates he sells fit the Stomper. You could also send Lloyd a message.
I have good news for you. Thanks to multiple requests, I have decided to add the 18/4 SegEasy Plates back to my offerings. I now have some in stock and have added them to the Store so that you can now buy them.
As Art said, every plate I make is made to fit the Stomper but if you bought the plates from any other source, including directly from Jerry Bennett, they do not have a hole drilled to fit the Stomper.
If you have already purchased a plate from someone other than me, you can put that plate on your lathe using Cole Jaws (or something similar) and enlarge the center hole to fit over the Stomper.
I use a 13/16” Forster bit on my lathe and that is perfect. It lets the plunger slide easily but has no wiggle room. I’ve used a number of plungers from various manufacturers and all have worked well with the 13/16” hole.
