I also have the Shopsmith and on my recent shopping spree was looking at that item but was unsure just what would or could be accomplished with it and I felt that the three hundred dollars could go to other tools but after looking at your projects I think I should look again. If you have the time I would love to read a blog about the tool, what you think, how to use it, and is it worth the cost.

I am always interested in how things work. My fear is that I’ll have to go out and spend 500 – 600 dollars, and then try to find space to put the thing.

I didn’t have a clue what a ring master was until yesterday. I googled it and watched the video so I now have an idea what it is. I agree with rikkor that here is another tool that really would like to have (along with a sawstop, lathe, bigger jointer, planer etc. ...... deep sigh …....) So many tools but so little space and a wife who won’t keep me in the style that I think I should be.

Of course I would like to see a blog on the operation from a user’s standpoint. That would be nice to see.

the ringmaster man is back…getting to know what the ringmaster can do is my thing…it only takes a little ceativity and a whole of patience …projects on line. to view….I can fill in the blanks on how to do this which can involve turning (which I don’t do) but can be included… the ringmaster allows to use both the side grain and well as the end grain, which is what I look for…for turning, you only get to look at the end grain on the top and bottom of the project… each ring has both end grain and side grain…neat!! and you can play with the grain etc. in each ring….thanks…interested questions>>>???let me know…

Beautiful work. Never used the ringmaster before but I make bowls from rings and love the beautiful grain patterns that this cut reveals.
