Introduction: Hex Ring for Less Than 1$
In this instructable you will learn how to make a custom fitting hex-nut ring.
Step 1: Tools Needed
-polishing compound/polishing bit
-large and small sanding bits
-eye and lung protection
-medium and fine sanding sponges
Step 2: Sizing
Sand out the threads. Once they are removed, use the larger sanding bit.
Then use the fine grit bit to size the ring to your finger.
Step 3: Thickness Adjustments
Thickness of your ring is a personal preference. I like mine a bit thinner, so I sawed about 1/3 off my hex nut.
Step 4: Roughing the Shape Out
In this step you will want to round out all the sharp edges and corners. you will also want to even out any hacksaw marks. Remember that it doesn't have to be perfect, because you still have to sand it.
Step 5: Curving the Inner Part
Step 6: Sanding
THIS IS A CRUCIAL STEP. In order for the ring to fit comfortably, you must smooth out any imperfections. Make shure to sand the direction you prefer it to shine when you finish.
Step 7: Polishing
Clamp your dremel onto your table vise. Use a generous amount of polishing compound, and bring your ring to a shine.
Step 8: Enjoy!
