Hi John; A little off-beat here. Bought mine in Jan. '92 from In-Line Industries at a cost of $119.95

Hi Mack

I probably bought mine around then or maybe sooner. Then they had the stick-on mylar angle guide. I have since bought another one that has an improved metal guide because I liked it so much.

I got mine from them also at a woodworking show which should be coming to town very soon as a matter of fact. I go all the time to check out the latest gadets that I do not need to have but seem to buy

Hey Mack how is the one you were working on coming along??? Can't wait to see it.
Well, I have 3 on the go.

1 on a non-descrip piece of Maple, and 2 of Canary Wood.

I'm not pleased with the way my pickguard fits in the cuts, so I'm going to attempt to plane some Walnut strips to size.

Stay tuned!

I played with one this weekend and i to was not happy with the way the pick gaurd fit in the kerf. I measured the saw blade and pickgaurd thickness with calipers and it should have been a nice fit; but the kerf ended up slightly wider that the blade width. All I can figure is possibly a slight (I mean very slight) bit of blade wobble. I cut filler pieces from bubinga and sanded them to size with a Performax drum sander. I hope to try some more this week using pickgaurd.

Like I said, there is so very little waste and not much time lost doing these type segmenting. Sorry about the first try but at least you know what to look for next time. Could be blade wobble, could be arbor runout, could be the blade is not sitting properly on the arbor, could be a bent blade. Cut the blank and then match the infill to the kerf instead of taking readings with calipers to measure blades.

I will try to get that black and aluminum blank spun this weekend. I know there were some who asked to see it.

I probably should not have said half way because if I were to cut half way on both the top and bottom rings the 2 halves would meet thus forming a complete ring. It was about 1/8" from the half way line. I made a center mark on the blank which divided the blank in half. I placed the blank next to the saw blade and lowered the blade so that it was about 1/8" below the mark. This is not critical but does affect the outlook. I keep all cuts the same.

No router on this one. I used a 7-1/4" saw blade to make the cuts. It just so happened this blade was thin enough to fit the inlay material exactly. This is why I said this is such an easy segmenting project because all you need is a way to cut the slices. It can be done with a tablesaw which I did or even a bandsaw but the kerf would be alot thinner and thus the material for inlay will be thinner. Now of course you can increase the kerf on a bandsaw by just moving your stop block abit.


Here is the jig I used to make the angled cuts on my tablesaw. I think I posted this once before but I forget. The angles were cut at 45 degrees but any angle will do. The straight cuts obviously were cut with the miter gauge set at 90 degrees to blade.









One other note I would like to make mention of. Not sure how many people use pickguard material for inlays in segmenting, but over the years I noticed not all pickguard material is the same dimentions. What I mean is, I found that on some material and in this case I used black-red-black, the thickness of each piece is not the same. The company sandwiches 3 pieces and then must plane or sand one outside edge down to get the true end of the line dimention. Thus leaving one black piece a small amount thicker than the one on the opposite side. I have found a company that is pretty reliable to having exactly what I want and that is equal thickness of pieces. especially the 2 outer ones which tend to show more so. The company is Blank Pickguard Material


Hope this helps a little. I have another blank ready for turning that I hope to do sometime this week.



I think I may have misspoke. I should have said 45 degree angle cuts and not 60 degree. I hope this did not cause any problems for anyone even though they can be cut at any angle.

Did you ever post a finished pic of the black blank above with the aluminum inlays? Looks like it would be really cool.

No not yet. Just need to get some shop time. Have another to go with it also that I need to get done. It is a comparison type thing so I would like to have both done at the same time and then I will post them for an opinion. Hopefully by this weekend.
