    Wedgie VS Lloyd's sled

    Segment travel was due to a build up of excessive cutoff segments piling up and user neglecting to stop saw an remove them, it was a just one more moment Mom and then I'll do it. So I know the magic number was 8 for this size before it took a oneway flight. I need to increase the angle of my...

    Wedgie VS Lloyd's sled

    I think both the Wedgie and Lloyds sled are pure genius, I can see both in my future. I just didn't clean my shop to make room for a shelf full of single purpose jigs for a single angle. I must have got lucky,I cut a sample ring last night looked good. Did my measurements and made another size...

    Wedgie VS Lloyd's sled

    I finished my wedgie sled, it's rough but works. Still need a wedge, will pickup a triangle. I used my table saw miter gauge and set it to 15 deg both right and left and set both fences. Rough cut some junk particle board by eye so all 12 pieces are not identical before segmenting. Gentle...

    Wedgie VS Lloyd's sled

    I know it's a loaded topic, but I need to ask. Anyone that has used both sleds which one do you go back to using and why? I'm currently in need of making a sled and love the adjustable nature of both without creating a pile of sleds to do a single angle. Actually was curious how many really...

    Hi from Michigan

    Figured I better say hi. Been turning pens and occasional odd items for a few years, took a break for last 2 years when I broke the lathe. It's back up and running, tooling up for segmenting which I have only done for small turnings. More of a ooh here's a box of cutoffs that I can glue together...
