Yup, Wedgies. For those who don't know what they are (Not what you're thinking! Grin), here's a link. They've been around for a while now. Fantastic product.

I have them and have built the sled. The sled/jig is fantastic. With the wedgie and the sled my very FIRST attempt at a ring was perfect. Unbelievable. I have used it to make a few bowls already. Great concept.
You read a lot about having to do half-rings and then sand to get them to fit right. This eliminates that. I have attached a pic of my first project.

Everything you've ever read about the wedgie sled is true.  I just wish these things were around 30 years ago!

I agree with Walt, just finished by sled, 0 clearance insert and length stop. Only had a 30/60/90 triangle to set the sled but first two rings are perfect, no half ring adjustment required.
Sooooo simple and it works a treat. My brother has a CNC router table and is going to make me a set of templates for the fractional angle wedges. This opens a whole new world of fun.
