Making a 6d Ring/dice Combo From a Nut




Introduction: Making a 6d Ring/dice Combo From a Nut

A fairly quick and easy instructable for those of you who have an intersecting interest in jewelry, board games of chance, and hardcore fastener hardware. …and have a tendency to misplace your pocket 6d when it comes time for you to make critical life changing decisions.

A note,courtesy of 8steve88: opposite sides of the 'die' should add up to 7, I missed that on my iteration, and may need to turn in my geek card, but I'd recommend something of an order like <1,4,2,6,3,5>.

Best of luck!

I made it at TechShop! (tm) (

Nice work.
I can't make out from the photos if the sequence of numbers is correct - the numbers on dice, the opposite sides always add up to seven.
Good idea for a ring, try to get A4 grade stainless steel as it's more resistant to salt corrosion (sweaty bits) and should be available from a ships chandlers, or I get mine from Amazon, the U.K. site but they should be easily available in the U.S.A. I use M6 size nuts for 550 paracord lanyard beads and bracelet spacers but can get up to M36!
Another vote for you. :)

Ah, I hadn't considered the number sequencing! Thanks for the note! I have enough wall thickness to grind it down, but I think it might be easier to start over and just keep this one for display.
A sequence like 1,2,3,6,5,4 would work, but it would probably be better or be more fair in case the die nut is off balance to go with something like 1,4,2,6,3,5.

Thanks for the vote!

It's possible! something like the nut from a truck axle could even make a bracelet version! It might be a little heavy though... ;)

HA HA! Tom cat made these (painted in yellow) to catch jerry mouse! Kidding! Nice idea for a ring!
