I’ve been working with my Jump Ringer quite a bit lately and am
beginning to worry that it’s taking out more metal that I’d like it
too with the size of wire I’m working with. I’ve been working with
26g wire lately and I think the cut is taking out enough metal to
deform them enough to where it can have an effect on some of the
chains I make. I’m worried that when I attempt 28g rings that it will
be even more noticeable.
Has anyone else noticed this and/or come up with a solution? I’m
wondering if there are any thinner blades for the Jump Ringer or if
there is any danger in sanding a blade down to try and get it
thinner. I’ve already got the arbor on some bamboo runners so that it
won’t cut the rings in half. Would raising it up even more so it just
barely cuts through help?
Any input or suggestions will be helpful.
