I’m already preparing for soon coming new lathe. I made this jig of MDF, playwood and chipboard. Besides triangles which I bought, I also ordered some custom made angles on laser cutter in my neighborhood made of fiberglass. I ordered them little to narrow, so I use one small leftover to get correct angle. On the fifth photo are some options to clamp those segments. On last one there is setup with toggle clamps and stops for repeatable cuts when making frames. Jig is capable to cut 8.5 cm wide boards. I made grooves with straight and T-bit. Jig on the other side of the saw is also movable along the tablesaw slot and can be tightened with T-screw and wing-nut. I realy managed to make it very accurate.

Where did you come up with the idea for such an innovative jig? Is it for cutting circles only or there other uses. Nice work, skillfully done.

Thanks Joe! Besides segments, I can cut picture frames here – now they can be any shape I imagine. If I remove upper fence and another part of jig, I can cut full plate polygon shapes also.

Nothing like a jig that can produce repeatedly accurate work. Nice job!

Looks like a accurate jig for making your segments. Now I can’t wait to see your segment turnings. Enjoy.
