This sled IS NOT my design, it was downloaded from Kevin’s Woodworkings, www.turnedwood.com.
Thank you Kevin.

I made this sled the other day to help me with my segmented bowl cutting. It works fabulously and I didn’t have to adjust it at all. That is more arse than class I can assure you.
This one is for cutting 12 piece rings, although the sled can be made for multiple different numbered segment rings. I chose to make it for 12 only because I got it right the first time, and don’t want to have to change anything.
If I need any different number of segments I will just make another sled.
The only thing missing from this is the “Toggle Clamps”. I was unable to purchase them locally so they are on order from Perth and will be fitted as soon as they arrive. I like to have 5 digits on each hand.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.
Comments welcome.

Bob.

Your on your way with that new table say Bob. This sled may not be your design but you made it work the way you need it to work. I’m looking forward to see what you create with your new gem of a tale saw!
Well done on that Sled!

Simple and effective. That’s all we need. You can always reuse part of the sled for another jig if needed.

May I ask, is the piece of wood attached with the clamp a stop and if it is, will it be attached to the sled? I am also interested in making a sled like this.

Larry,
Yes mate, it is a stop and used to set the length of the segment, so it doesn’t get attached to the sled.
The full plans can be downloaded from Kevin’s website.
Best of luck and Seasons Greetings to you all.

Bob.
