Introduction: COIN RING MAKING TUTORIAL

Picture of COIN RING MAKING TUTORIAL

THESE ARE THE TOOLS I USE TO MAKE MY RINGS.

1. WOODEN MALLET AND HAMMER

2. PUNCH

3. PLIERS

4. DRILL PRESS AND VARIOUS DRILL BITS

5. TORCH FOR ANNEALING THE COIN

5. POLISHING WHEEL OR ROTARY TOOL

6. ROUND FILE AND SAND PAPER

7. TAPERED MANDREL

8. WOOD BLOCK WITH VARIOUS SIZE HOLES FOR FORMING

9. RING SIZE MANDREL

10. BENCH VICE

11. POLISHING COMPOUND

12. COINS AND TIME

Step 1: INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO OF PROCESS START TO FINISH

THIS VIDEO IS LONG BUT IT SHOWS THE COMPLETE PROCESS. EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN WAY OF MAKING THESE RINGS AND THIS IS THE WAY I DO IT.

Step 2: FINISHED PRODUCT

THE ONLY THING I HAVE LEFT OUT WAS POLISHING THE INSIDE OF THE RING. I USE A DREMEL WITH A BUFFING WHEEL BUT IT CAN BE DONE WITH A RAG AND SOME POLISHING COMPOUND. AND YES MY FINGER IS JUST A LITTLE TOO FAT FOR THE RING.
