Ringsmaker is an innovative product for creating jump rings out of wire. The rings are used to connect charms to bracelets, build chain mail and many other things. They are made by wrapping wire around a mandrel in long spring-like coils that are then cut using a jeweler’s saw. Jump rings created this way have a smooth and neat finish that closes well. This tool allows a jeweler to create them quickly and efficiently in any metal, including stainless steel. It has a unique blade guiding groove that accomplishes the delicate task of lining up and supporting the coil while it is being cut by the blade. It has a simple, compact design that almost anyone can use. It is very fast to operate and is a perfect fit for the hobbyist or small jewelry shop.
The machine is very easy to set up and use. Simply screw the mandrel into the handle and then start coiling wire. It is easy to see when the coil is full and the tool will stop automatically. The machine cuts through any type of wire with ease, including softer metals like copper and brass. It is also capable of cutting the hardest metals like niobium and titanium. The ‘brain’ of the machine is its advanced laser tachometer which shows in real time the exact speed the blade is turning, making it easier to get consistent results everytime.
The Ringinator(r) EZ is a quick and inexpensive way to cut jump rings in any size, even challenging metals. A pound of 20g jewelry quality shiny stainless steel will cost you about $10 with the machine, less than a pound of the same size in jump rings from a catalog or website and far less than buying them in bulk from your local bead store. It also saves on labor costs as you don’t have to keep a large variety of sizes on hand.
