The fastest, funkiest way to assemble open segments and closed ring vessels.
SegEasy Segments and Gaps
Each SegEasy plate has a set number of segment channels separated by a ridge that creates the gap between those segments. Using trigonometry, the number of segments plus the gap factor arrives at a single angle which you must use to cut segments that fit the channels on that particular disk. Since the geometry is likely different on each plate, this cutting angle will be different for each plate.
Etchings on the plates
The geometry of each plate is etched onto each plate. This shows the number of segments, the number of degrees for each gap and the cutting angle to be used to cut segments. In addition, a channel number is etched onto each channel.
Configure Woodturner PRO
For each plate, you must configure Woodturner PRO so that all calculations will be correct. First, set the Row Type to Open Segment. Second, set the number of segments to match the plate. Finally, change the number of degrees for the gap to match that of the plate.
I have used the CD stomper since you released it. What a great idea to make my segmenting headaches go away. I'm looking forward to my next project. Thanks for sharing your terrific idea with us out here.
I've always used a lathe-mounted jig to apply segments to open segment vessels - one segment at a time. With the Stomper, I apply an entire row all at once with all the accuracy I've always achieved. It is a tremendous time saver.
Finally a good use for free weights :->
