Thanks, algale!! to brianinpa: A 6” X 48” bench belt sander would do the trick. You could edge-up a 20” diameter ring with one, it oughta be plenty! The sander you see is my home-made edge-sander made from an old conveyor, with a stainless steel platen, and uses a standard Delta 6” X 89” belt. Wayyyyyy back I think I posted a how-to on this. Oh, and as a bonus, that hunk of 6061 aluminum plate I picked up for use as a jig, the glue doesn’t ever stick to it, so once dry your project glue-up will lift right off. I’m wondering if big chute board, with a #7 or #8, might accomplish the same thing?? I actually wondered if a 15-degree chute board might have been the right way to size up the segments in the first place!
