I had to make a segmented ring for a clock im making and decided to try the wedgie sled, i’ll have to say its the simplest thing to make, but its absolutely incredible, Jerry, your a freking genius. On my very first test the pieces came out absolutely perfect. Now I can get the walnut and maple out and make the final ring.

Finally got some pics uploaded, I had a piece of adjustable miter bar left over from another project so I cut a shallow dado to lock it in, and (borrowed a 30deg triangle from my wife’s quilting supplies, have to give it back though, damn)

Looks great Lee,

I like the simplicity of the jig and making one of my own is near the top of my todo list.

You should only need to set the angle once, unless you want to make different numbers of segments. A 30-60-90 triangle is good for 6 and 12 segments. A 45 degree rafter square should be accurate enough for 8 segments.

Cool! I’ve been considering making one of these. Thanks for the heads up on the source for a 30° triangle.
