I purchased a Miter Set and am very impressed. I cut 15 rings with 12 pieces and everyone came out perfect. So tried one with 15 pieces with the same results. Very easy to set.You put one pin in the zero on one side and the other pin on the other side in the hole with number of segments you want. Put your miter bar in the slot and adjust it so it touches both pins. Cost was 100.00 Can. The only draw back i| can see is that it will only 20 segments. Unless i am missing something. Easier to set than a wedgie sled

Looks like a piece piece of gear, but for segmented work, I think the Wedgie Sled is better.

The Wedgie Sled not only lets you set the angle of the miters, but also set the segment edge length (SEL is what determines the circumference of the ring). With the Miterset, it looks like you need a stop block of some sort on the miter gauge fence.

And if Miterset won’t accommodate more than 20 segments to a ring, that could be problematic.

If you are cheap (like me!), the Wedgie Sled plans are free and you can whip one up from scraps yo may have laying around the shop. And a set of wedges costs about US$50.

I used the same stop block system that i use with the wedgie sled. It is attached to the table saw fence not on the miter gauge fence. I agree with you on the 20 pieces
