I was wondering if I could please hear some book recommendations on
traditional ring making. Particularly ones that explain techniques
for forged rings, making linings, rails.
Any books start from billet, to rolling mill, and so on?
I am self taught so far and had some fun making a few rings using an
ignot mold to make my ring blanks and then used the gesswein ring
blank ruler to size them up. I really enjoyed forming the simple
rings like this.
I am now considering to “stet it up” and buy a rolling mill and make
my own from thicker billets. I also want to attempt to make rails,
and ring liners
However, unless I see someone else use a rolling mill, or read a
guide, I don’t know exactly how to start. billet sizes to start with?
