I’m getting into segmented turning, and have just been using the miter gauge on my tablesaw to cut the angles.
That works, but a sled makes it a lot more accurate and faster.
This sled is patterned after one designed by Jim Rodgers, and is set (permanently) at 15 degrees, which yields 12 segments to a ring.
The ring shown in the last pic hasn’t been glued or clamped.
