Open Segment Glue Up Jig

I have created a jig to glue up open segment turnings without using a lathe.
The jig has the benefit that it is used vertically so if you glue heavy or large segments they will not be affected by gravity
while waiting for the glue to dry.

The jig is built around a machined fitting that holds the index wheel and a face plate or chuck. A tenon fits into a socket in the base that allows the glue up to rotate. The remainder of the jig consists of a wood base, wood column with a t-track that allows the positioning arm to slide vertically. The metal positioning arm with stop provides for accurate positioning of the segments.
