Preparing a Blank for Segmented Turning Photos by Mike Jones I have tried just about every method to create segments using mitre saws and disc sanders.Now that I've figured out how to create a proper mitre sled for my table saw, I won't fiddle with any of that stuff anymore.
It can't be done any faster, safer or more accurately than with one of these sleds.Oh, and with less waste.What more could you want? The Table SawDon't be overwhelmed when I say we're going to do this on the table saw.
If the jig is made properly, this is the safest way I've seen to cut segments.The table saw doesn't have to be big and fancy, either.I've even done this with a jobsite table saw that was worth half as much as my mitre saw.
A mitre sled equipped with toggle clamps not only makes accurate, repeatable cuts, it also makes the task of cutting many tiny segments much safer for two main reasons: (1) There's much less chance of sending small pieces of wood into the air because the toggle clamps hold both the work piece and the off-cut, and (2) your fingers can stay a safe distance...
