Anyone out there with any experience in producing wedding ring bands on
You didn’t indicate wether you’re going into mass production or making a
small quantity (<5). I’ve never made precious metal items in a lathe, but
I’ve made lots of other stuff. The principles of turning don’t vary much
The techniques could vary depending on the quantity to be made & the
material used (solid, tubular etc). If you’re just making a small quantity, the
technique will vary with the type of equipment you have available.
Basically there are 3 ways to hold tubular or round stock in a lathe, a
chuck, a collet or a mandrel. Each has specific applications, disadvantag
es & advasntages.
E-mail off list if you want more info.
