Default Open segmented turning jig

I am looking for a jig for making open segmented work. There used to be a place called Texasgadgets.com who used to make these but no longer do. If anyone knows someone who wants to get rid (sell) it please let me know.

Lin.

I think Craft supplies USA sells a segmenting jig. I dont think it was designed for open segs, but it might work.

There is a growing interest in segmented works - There is a new AAW chapter on segmented turning - (I paid up and joined -- very Noob at that work but seemed like a good place to learn from masters)

There are a couple of templates for the workbench CUSA sells one. There are a few excellent books, and a couple of computer programs. I was pointed to the woodturner pro family. Seems to work well, but again I am a Noob at Segmentation and Lamination.

Thanks guy's for the input but what I am looking for is a jig that mounts on the lathe. Like this one on this guy's website.

In his tutorial, he gives his contact info. I would go straight to the source and tell him Texasgadgets no longer does. Maybe he knows of another.

There is a book called Segmented Wood Turning by William Smith that outlines the open segmented process and has plans and templates for all the jig pieces sold by Texas Gadgets.

While IAP is fun and informative and a wealth of information (especially for penturners),
you will find much more info on polychromatic turning if you join us at http://www.segmentedwoodturners.org/
