The rings collapse as I begin the saw, or the saw doesn't go
through completely, and many more mishaps...
I have the jumpringer and my employees do about 8 to 10 coils at a
time, I do not have to use wooden dowels or brass rods (for ovals we
do). We are using 18 ga wire.
One issue might be, if your flexshaft loads down while cutting and
binds up and cannot supply even steady torque at slower speeds, you
will have problems.If that is the case, you have to be very careful
and slow with the pressure when you cut, get the blade going fairly
fast and move into the coil slowly and hold it very steady pushing
down hard and move forward slowly. I have one #30 handpiece that is
set up with the jumpringer cutter, and I remove the handpiece and
leave it in the cutter if I need to use that flexshaft. If the cutter
is aligned right, the coil is secured correctly is the holder, use a
slow steady speed and my blades last for a long time. It did take
time to get everything aligned right, but now my employees do it
When you start cutting, if it is not smooth and steady, something is
not right, and you will not get good results.
