Heyo people's! Been a while since I've done an ible, thought it'd be nice to put one up for a change of pace!
>alright.. Lets get to the ible!

Step 1: Find The Parts/Tools

Alright for this you're gonna need 7 things 1)a steel or stainless steel washer. 2)a dremal or drill. 3)files and sand paper. 4)ring mandrel or even a round crow bar. 5)patience.. It takes about 2-4 hours if you work nonstop, have everything you need, and are experienced with stuff like this. 6)a hammer, if you don't have this you're not getting far :P. 7) most important thing is music.. If you don't have it.. And you're in a quite room.. You will most likely go bonkers.. Trust me 0.0
Cool ring but pictures of a mandrel and how you flattened it would be nice. I don't have a clue how you flattened it.
Pictures wouldn't have given much of a "how to" on flattening it out. I believe somewhere in this ible I explained how to do it. There's more than one way to flatten it, you just kinda have to figure out what works best for you.
A lot of work for the result. Why not cut a piece of pipe and work from there?
If you're talking about the lack of shine, and the dents on the outside. <br>It was made to look more distressed. If I really wanted I could make that thing look flawless, mirror finish, smooth surface. But that's not what I wanted. <br>As for the pipe, you could I guess, but you would have to resize it. which resizing involves putting a seam, and soldering it back together. Not the most ideal thing if you're wanting it to look good.
Don't get me wrong. I like the look. I made one of a titanium piece of scrap pipe which was the right size for me, so I was lucky. I made the sides and inside shine and the outside brushed with a scotch pad. Stretching a ring is hard to do with diy tools (and impossible with titanium)
<p>hi you commeted on one of my instructables can you please login to the PC version of instructables go to that instructable it is called deleted and can you delete that comment?</p>
It's really cool how you were able to do this with the regular tools in your house! I find that most of these instructables always require those machines that most people don't have. Thanks for making a ring instruct able for the common mans budget!
