After recently taking up segmented turning, I soon found that the use of a thickness sander sure would be helpful. Of course, this is one machine I do not own; and with the price tags I have seen it may be some time before I do. Of course, a thickness sander is of great value in segmented turning, there is always more than “one way to skin a cat” as they say.
At another site that I check in on from time to time, a fellow segmented wood turner came up with this useful little add on to your drill press. Although certainly not a replacement for a good thickness sander, it does do the trick…..just remember not to try a take too much of a bite at one go…..
Here is a short U-Tube video showing this cheap means of preparing your segmented rings…..
