The craft lathe has markings moulded into the cups, but what if you want to divide your egg into something other than 4 wedges?
This set allows you to unleash your creativity and create designs based on 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 16 or 20 wedges.
Happy egging is pleased to release is the new and improved third version of the rings…the best of versions 1 and 2. They are made of 1/8” laser cut and engraved birch plywood.
To use: Fit the ring to the lathe cup. (Instructions for fitting are included with the rings). Make sure your pencil is raised to the lathe’s centre of rotation. You can do this using our Self-storing Lathe table or by stacking books/papers to the right height. Each ring allows you to divide into three numbers. For example, the “3 6 12” ring will let you divide an egg into 3, 6, or 12 wedges. For 3 wedges, use the small dashed lines only; for 6 wedges, use the small and large dashed lines; for 12 wedges, use all lines.
The rings were designed to work with the beige plastic craft lathe and lathe table, but can still be used on chicken eggs as you would a paper template.
NOTE: Our new manufacturer has added a protective masking film to the product to protect the wood from scorching during the laser cutting and engraving process. Masking is indicated with a red dot. Please check for masking and remove from the front and back before use.
If you’ve used an egg lathe to make lines from the north to south “poles” on an egg, you’ll know how important it is to have the pencil height juuust right.
If your pencil tip is not the same height as the centre of the lathe’s rotation, your lines will be bowed and inaccurate. The lathe table was designed to help you make lines at the perfect height when used with an everyday hexagonal wooden pencil. You may even find other uses for it…some people use it as a wrist support while egging :)
The table assembles and disassembles in seconds, and can be stacked and “locked” into the lathe when not in use.
NOTE: Our new manufacturer has added a protective masking film to the product to protect the wood from scorching during the laser cutting and engraving process. Table parts from the original batch do not have masking, but the new ones do. Masking is indicated with a red dot. Please check for masking and remove before use.
