WOODTURNING CALCULATORS
The below calculators are provided by LeRoy Monson. They may be downloaded for your Personal Use only.  This allowance for Personal Use in no way modifies or limits copyright protection under law against unauthorized Commercial use of the Calculator. The calculator requires Microsoft Excel (version 5 or higher). If you have any questions or need help please email LeRoy.

Segmented Woodturning Calculator
woodturning_segments_calculator
This Excel calculator calculates the angles and dimensions for individual segments of arcs and circles. You only need to enter the number of segments and the inside and outside diameters.  If  you provide your saw blade’s actual measured kerf width, it provides the  minimum length of the stock needed to complete one segmented circle, but you may want to allow additional length for spare segments. Although designed to be an adjunct to any favorite bowl segment cutting jig or method, it can be used for any project that incorporates segments of any size; whether a small picture frame, a circular window, or a doorway arch.
Multi-sided Tapered Box Calculator

Vacuum Holding Power
vacuum_chart11
Here’s a link to a chart that let’s you figure how much holding power a vacuum chuck or vacuum clamp has based on your vacuum strength in inches of mercury and the number of square inches being used to hold an object.  Porosity of the material being held will also affect the holding power but is not factored into these charts.
