David Arens makes a device for winding and cutting jump rings of
various sizes and guages of wire. I bought one from him and use
it frequently. It saves a lot of time, and you can make exactly
the diameter jump rings you need.

Hi D & G,

  I've been trying to find 18kt yellow gold jump rings in
18gage. does anyone know who might be making them.  I would be
thankfull.

Why not make your own. Wind a coil of 18ky 18ga around the
appropriate sized mandrel & cut the coil into rings.

If that doesn’t sound appealing, how many do you need? If it’s a
sizeable quantity, I may be able to supply you.

Dave

Rick Hamilton mentioned David Arens’ device for cutting jump
rings - I can also attest to it - it’s especially useful if you
need to make a large number of the same size jump rings all at
once - I think anyone involved in chain-making (I think that was
the original discussion here) would find it very useful.
