I have always used adjusto-shanks, finger-fits and
finger-mates. One of my larger customers wants me to use the
super-fit (not sure-fit) for his rings. Have you ever tried
this one? I got a sample and it seems very well made, the hinge
and clasp mechanism are almost invisible when closed and the
shank is solid, allowing future sizing. Any experience with
hi mark p.
i’ll directly answer your question: no i’ve never used a super
fit (it takes a pen to open and it has a single hinge that
allows the shank to swing away, right?) but… do you believe
in the rythym (sp?) of life? the right things happening at the
right time? i believe in it more after your question! i’m in
need of superfits phone # because i need to use one and nothing
else is going to work on this ring (unless i invent something
and hand fabricate it). i’ve looked in all my book directories
and can’t find their #. superfit is probably a brand name that
doesn’t reflect the co. name that produces them. i’ll bet you
have their number. could i puhleeeeze beg it from you.
i’ve installed all of those other types as well. to one degree
or another, they all cause the upper portion of the ring to
flex, the adjusto shank being the worst. so, if you have a
channel set ring, especially with channels going in the same
direction as the finger, (this is my situation) you have stones
continually coming loose and/or falling out. the super fit
doesn’t cause the ring to flex, and as you know, from that
sample, it doesn’t have any protruding parts like all the others
(except the finger mate).
perhaps we can compare notes before or after we install them.
ps. that wasn’t such a bad joke.
