Can anyone identify the insignia or badge on this Onyx ring and what it represented?

This ring was part of some jewelry that belonged to my mother, born in Dallas, Texas in 1910.  Her family (mostly Presbyterian) and ancestors lived in Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Minnesota and Britain.  I wondered if it was a Christian Church or school, because of the cross and candelabra. It is small and was likely a lady's ring.

what this metal ring called? Answered

These collars are found in a variety of applications large and small, this particular one came out of a broken flatbed scanner. I've seen variants with bearings on the inside ring allowing full rotation in industrial settings and small hobby ones used for axles. So, is there a name for these?

Ring Contest Question

I have a question regarding the ring contest. Did you have to actually make the ring or could you have designed it, planned out what went into it, created a mold model, and had a jeweler create the finished product from your design? I designed my wife's engagement ring with drawings and even a wax model but did not have the proper tools or materials to actually make it so a local jeweler put my design into reality and I critiqued it until it was exactly as I wanted. Does that count for this contest?

Make your vise quieter

Put o-rings under each end of the handle. Measure your handle and use o-rings with a little smaller diameter so they'll stay put.

Someone to paint a white, strong & flexible ring from Shapeways

Hi, I would like to buy a ring from Shapeways but before buying it in silver I would like to buy it in plastic to see if I actually like it on my finger so I was wondering if someone would be able to paint it for me. The main colour would be silver with a little bit of green and blue on the face.  As for the paint I was thinking of enamel or acrylic depending on which would last longer. Would anyone be interested in doing this? Side note: Would I get a better response by having this thread in the Art section of this forum?

how to make a custom o-ring for shower deviator

I am in need of an o-ring replacement for an unidentifiable bathroom faucet shower diverter. Unidentified probably means Chinese. And these things often have no product replacement parts. I am sure there must be a way to make a replacement either out of rubber or silicone either by 3D printer or some kind of mold. I would appreciate any kind of help - either someone with a 3D printer who could make one or a mold for silicone or melted rubber. I don't mind paying for this as I'm sure it would cost considerably less than replacing the whole magilla. I'm thinking of the kind of rubber used for bottle stoppers that empty air from wine bottles; or some way to make this o-ring. The dimensions are in the attached images. I an furnish more images if necessary and contact info.

Anyone know how to turn titanium?

I've found a few instructables here for making titanium rings which have been great.  The only problem is, I have no idea of the feeds/speeds, especially when boring the interior of the ring.

A Ring For The Less-Attentive

Hello, first off I'd like to apologize immediatly if this is in the wrong section. Personally, out of all the sections it seems to fit best here :) You see, my girlfriend has ADD (bless her) and seems to always be fidgeting around when there is nothing to preoccupy her attention. So what I am looking for is any worthy scouter to take on my challenge :D. That challenge is to make a ring!! A ring so amazing intricate or beautifully simple that it will hold anyone's attention and keep them from getting bored. The idea for this arose from these two sources: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSy5YrZ9xUs And this one: http://www.kinektdesign.com/ Would astound anyone but the price is far far to steep, not to mention the massive size of the ring itself.  So there is your challenge, essentially a ring for the bored. Good luck all! Sincerely, Ryan

Ring-A-Day

This has been going all year, but I just came across it via NOTCOT:   Colleen Baran's Ring a Day project is one surprisingly creative treat after another. The project is about ideas and fun more then commercial work. It's about the idea that feels most exciting that day. Some rings will be ephemeral and temporary made of fragile materials. Others will be carefully crafted for durability and meant for long term daily wear. These will be coming later in the year. They are experiments in line, shape & color. An exploration of ideas like a daily sketchbook. Some are quite serious and carefully planned, some are a little silly, some will take a couple minutes, others many, many hours. Most (so far) are made of recycled or alternative materials as diverse as felt, false eyelashes, cucumber facemasks, lipstick, repurposed elastic bands, twist ties, straws and tinfoil with carob. The rings are documented on Flickr - my favourite so far is the straw ring illustrated below.

electronic/mechanical/ LED-Radio-Decoder Wedding rings?

Hey there,my future wife and I are looking for some fancy wedding rings. Well, we're both geeks, so it should be something that involves electricity or a nifty function ;-)Unfortunaly she's allergic to some metal components often used in steel or gold/silver, so titan or something like that would be more suitable. Aluminum or some plastics would work too, i guess.Thats the problem right there. Even if we'd find something online or a store that makes rings, they'll probably not work with titan since its harder to work with.I found some LED rings athttp://www.flashingblinkylights.com/aurora-color-changing-led-ring-sku-no-10209.htmhttp://www.timhunkin.com/32_jewellery.htmhttp://www.lightupshop.com/resources/lightupshop/html/products_LIJW_1.htmlbut as allways the problem is the metal and of course power.A battery would either have to be replacable or rechargable ;D (capacitor? but even a low current led wont even flash up with a tiny capacitor?)A solarcell so tiny it'll fit ontop of a ring without looking redicoulus would not be efficient enough I'dd guess.Of course, as previously stated, it could be something mechanical (as http://www.switzerwatch.com/product_info.php?language=en&viID[4]=30&products_id=1297 for example)A nifty idea would be if the rings would actually do something when brought together (magnetism, induction, mechanism).I also had the idea of the rings morsing the date every few minutes on radio, much like http://www.mcmanis.com/chuck/robotics/projects/eelb.htmlif all fails we'll just look into something cool to engrave (there are rings with laser engraved fingerprints as example) or we'll just embed a electronic part such as a resitor with a value representing the day we've met or such.ANY (cool) ideas apreceated, especialy about LEDs, sources/shops, adresses to shops customizing, and so on (but please, nothing over 50-200 bucks, we're not rich).I hope you guys / gals dont start to laugh at us now. We cant help it. We just want something unique and not a golden ring with some diamond. Some people really have rings that look ugly! Well, geeky LEDs do too, but at least they do something ;-)

Is that your ring phoning?

Here's half an idea - a ring that displays text messages. It might look like nothing more than a ring at first glance, but this finger-worn device can sync with your mobile phone. It has a vibratory alert and a tiny screen that shows caller ID, text messages, and meeting reminders from your mobile. Flip it open and it converts into a headset. In the image, the screen looks glued on, but I guess that it could easily be a small piece of epaper.  As for being an ear-piece, I can't see how it would end up large enough to be comfortable or practical, yet still start off small enough to wear as a ring. Now, if the some idea was expanded to a bangle, then an entire phone could be built into a bracelet small and slim enough to be discrete. Now the embarrassing bit: I got this story off MSN...

Mating gold plated jewely and brass?

I'm working on a simple little design for a present where I have this cheap gold plated signet ring and I'm going to be taking a small portion of those spiral shavings from a piece of brass stock and creating an Archimedean spiral pattern which needs to mate with the face of the ring. The inner metal of the ring is unknown, and due to the thinness of both materials welding seems out of the question. How should I mate these two objects together?

Doorbell Issues

I have a problem with my doorbell, and it's driving me insane. A couple of weeks ago I decided to fix our doorbell, one that has not worked for a very long time (decades). I replaced the grommets that go on the tone bars. I cleaned the plungers and everything. It worked just fine, until about a week ago. Sometimes it will ring, sometimes it's very quiet, sometimes it doesn't ring at all, and sometimes it will do a short ring (the ring doesn't last very long, like it used to). Also, it is about 40 years old. Another thing, the switch is rated at 16V, and I'm using an 18V doorbell, could this cause the circuit to not complete properly? Here is a picture of it (cover removed) I thought by putting hot glue on the grommets would help, but it didn't. The pic shows the glue, but now it is removed.

Making Diy Ring Light. Help?

Ok at the moment i'm working on a Diy Ring Light.   I will try to be as detailed as possible.   The light source i'm using is from an old LED light box that has over 204 leds in a array  17x12 matrix  I am using a Old circle fan outer shell for the ring shape and i already made the outer casing. My problem is i am trying to wire these leds off of the matrix and in separate rows.  My plan is wire these leds in a circle and connect the ends to the LED light box controller.  Basically take the box led shape and make it into a circle.   At the moment the leds are attached to the board.  I have desoldered all of them almost and i have figured out the positive led and negative led.    As long as i wire the positive leds in a row and negative in its own row with paper clips and then connect it back up to the positive wire and negative wire on the controller i should have it working? Is there something else i need to do?   It will be powered by the wall because the controller has its own dc input and i have the correct power supply for it.       I will provide pictures if needed.   i hope this is enough info to help you guys help me.   Thanks.

Color Changing LED Ring - Help

Hello, I've searched most of the LED Instructables section looking for something I'd like to make. I'm just looking into making something very basic. Simply put, I'm looking to build a round "coaster" type object. I'd like it to have a few coloured LED's that are in a circular shape but will fade in/out and mix colours together. Picture having this under a glass object and it's purpose is to light up the object with different colour patterns and such just for looks.

Small LED Push Button Setup

Bear in mind I'm not the best with this type of thing but I thought I could figure it out on my own. This setup is supposed to be small enough to fit in a ring, so the smaller the better. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
