I made this jig to cut segment for bowls. It started out where you could adjust the angle for different segment angles, but I have settled on doing 12 segment rings. I got the angle dialed in to cut perfect segments so I can setup in minutes without measuring except for the length.

Very quick and simple.
Did you have any problem with saw blade tear out on the bottom side of your cuts as a result of the unsupported hang over?

Nice jig. You could dowel that arm in place for the perfect angles. Then you can use many angles and know they will be right on when you set up for them.

Nice jig, very useful and easy to use. I have been mulling over making one to add to my capabilities. One of many three lifetimes of projects to do….
