There seems to be some interest in the my technique for making
jump rings Basically I’ve made a unit that attaches to a Foredom
#30 handpiece (or eqivalent) & a motor tool (Dremel etc). Here’s
a breif description of the Koil Kutter.
The Koil Kutter consists of an arbor on which is mounted a 120
tooth, high speed steel, repaceable blade.
A guide-shield that attaches to a # 30 handpiece (any 1 in dia.
hndpc) or a Dremel. A coil holder that holds coils, up to 3 1/2
(85mm aprox) inches long & 1in (25mm aprox) wide. Set of
instructions & hints. There are 2 models, 1 for flexshafts & 1
In addition I make a set of mandrels, 2 -13mm, in 0.5mm steps. A
coil winder, but you can use your variable speed drill.
An adjustable ring stretcher for making oval or oblong rings, of
uniform size, from soldere/fused round rings.
A corian draw plate for chain.
A solder aid to assist squeezing paste solder from tubes.
All of these tools resulted from student requests that arose in
a chainmaking class I teach.
I don’t think it’s polite to do business on Orchid, if you’d
