Topic tags/keywords: segmented turning plans sharing profiles

I admit I plagiarize some turners ideas. I then utilize the ideas to draft (Deltacad) or develop similar profiles on my own developed profile graph. Then I dimension radius and wall thickness including allowance for inside and outside waste (board width) for turning. Since I often turn the inside as I assemble and glue subsequent rings, I also plot inside and outside radius dimensions. I transfer radius and other dimensions to a MSWorks blank spreadsheet the includes formulas for ring radius (chord of circle), bd. ft. needed, number of segments, stock length needed, ring description, material of ring. I also include a title on every sheet and the plagiarizes original photo. I can output .jpg copies which can’t be modified or system files that users could input in like programs.
I have used this system for over 200 turnings and it serves me well.
The jest of this post are there turners willing or wanting to freely share/swap or request copies of similar plans?

Woodturner’s have been sharing every aspect of segment turning forever!

Cannot count number of places online offering plans, tips & tricks available free or at low cost.

Not sure there is a need to plagiarize anything connected with woodturning! My outlook on any facet of woodturning has always been “If you are afraid to fail don’t try!” “Unless you strive to improve upon what you see, what’s the point?”

Thank you for your uninformation. I chanced there might be someone who could use and benefit from my meager experience. It is a great comfort to be in the midst of so many people that possess the magnitude of knowledge demonstrated in your reply. Henceforth I will keep my ideas and opinions private.

Hmmm … a little thin-skinned, aren’t we.

Some of us just don’t believe in taking the work or an idea of someone else and passing it off as our own. Maybe that is not what you meant, but that is what plagiarism is.

Jack merely sharing my opinion and how I feel about plagiarizing! Try posting, “I admit I plagiarize some turners ideas,” on other message boards and see how well you are received.

If simply said try to emulate segment turnings I see and constantly try to equal or surpass those items would not have responded to your post. Do not know any woodturner including myself that has not learn the craft without emulating.

Others have done similar things with various software programs. Fact remains woodturning craft made up of vary caring and sharing people. You would get more favorable responses if shared and started posting how you achieve various designs or offered to help.
