Question ring master projects

Hello, My husband just received a ring master and is learning how to use it. He is also looking for some older books that gave projects and instruction in them for the machine. Is there any one here in the forum that has one of these machines? thanks.

Let me first say welcome to the forum. I am a collector of old woodworking tools and I have not heard of a Ring Master. Please tell us more about the machine and whats it's used for.

OK, I must be missing something. I scoured that web site and I still have no idea what a Ring Master is. It is obvoiusly a lathe accessory but what the heck does it do?

I'm sorry if you think that this smells fishey to you. LOL. It's just that my hubby is just seeking other woodworkers that are also using the ring master to share tips, etc. Right now, he is doing the basics and has made around 6 bowls so far. Nothing fancy yet tho. The reason that I am in this forum is because my hubby doesn't know very much about computers but I am hoping that he will jump in on his own and correspond with others. I don't know how to send a image as we don't have a web site.

Sheeech! Am I the only one that knows what a Ring Master is...I think it`s been around for about 30 or 35 years! I first saw one while working in a small custom shop in Indiana. I have not seen the sight...but the one I saw back then simply cut round rings in boards...good for collapsable baskets...or whatever! In that time I`d think it has been improved upon. Maybe now...it can cut ovals. At any rate...it was a very interesting invention! In 35 years...this is the third time I`ve heard of them!!! As far as what can be made using one...I think it would be a real time saver making segmented laythe turnings!! Also useful in cornice work...fencing, railings..frizbyees? I`m going to check out the sight! Rick

Never... I mean always... never mind Rick

This is really a clever idea so that the rings line up and you can make a bowl out of a flat piece of board. It cuts rings at an angle and then just glue them together. Go to the Shopsmith site and you will see it in action if you choose the April 12 08 session 17 or Session 11. Nice!! Am thinking of getting one. Does anyone have one for sale that will fit on a Delta 46-305 Lathe? They also make a stand alone model with a motor on it.
