• Having problems with video with Segment PRO on a new PC? You could be experiencing one (or both) of two problems. First, if you have an ultra high-resolution screen, the recommended settings might be higher than 1920 x 1080 with a scale factor of more than 100% and the user interfaces for all software written in c# will NOT be correct. Simply change the resolution and scaling to 1920 x 1080 and scale to 100%. Second, if you have a wonky Bowl View, you have an Intel Iris graphics solution and there are serious problems with it. Solution - go to the Drivers page at Intel's website and install their latest driver for your computer. This will fix it. Link: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download-center/home.html

Interesting! I have never had a single bad ring using a Wedgie sled. When I first started I made half rings thinking that was necessary. Then I just decided that I will try to make full rings to save time and effort, and have done so ever since. I use JB setup templates and some that I have cut myself. The beauty of the Wedgie sled is that it inherently compensates for slight errors because you alternate between 2 fences set at the required angle (critical). There is no flipping of wood or any other maneuver involved. If the sled and saw are correctly setup and stock is flat and square (fundamental), then it should simply work! Even if the blade is not at exactly 90 deg to the saw bed the alternating cuts compensate for that. The only time I ever had a problem was when I accidentally flipped a single wedge, which I recognized right away. It is essential that all of the wedgies remain the same way up as you cut them. I mark the top of the wood to be cut to ensure that. After that it doesn't matter the order in which they go together other than the need to create the layout of the desired ring.

My reason for using "setup blocks" is that no measuring or test cuts are required. It is consistently accurate and much faster! I will give some thought to post about how the setup blocks are determined. It is simply an alternate way to determine where to place the stop block. Once you know the required distance (can be easily calculated) my software works out which setup blocks to use to create that distance.
