Introduction: Simple Wrench Ring

Two ways to make a stylish ring from a wrench

Step 1: Supplies

Small combination wrenches (size ¼in or smaller)

Steel rods of differing sizes for different size fingers

Oxyasettling torch set with number 2 welding tip

Ballping hammer

Pliers

Vice grips

Welding gloves

Striker

Pedestal grinder with wire wheel

Step 2: Setup

Use appropriate sizing rod and attach wrench with vice-grips; and pliers.

Step 3: Shaping (1st Way)

Light welding torch and heat wrench while using pliers to bend around steel rod until wrench is completely wrapped around the rod.

Step 4: Shaping (2nd Way)

Attach wrench to steel rod with vice-grip and pliers. Then use pliers to bend wrench around steel rod.

Step 5: Removing/Polishing

Once wrench is shaped to desired size remove ring from steel rod with either pliers or ball-ping hammer. Run hot wrench under water then use pedestal grinder with wire ring to polish and buff the ring.

Step 6: Finished

Once ring has been polished you can use sanding paper to polish hard to reach places.

    Maybe its better to polish it first, and then bend? It's easier to polish flat key... And after bending you'll just have to finish it up.
