Hi there Stephanie. Could you send me a jpeg of the set up?
Actually, I would be interested in knowing what method you use to cut
the rings as I have found that winding is not a problem.The Jump
Ringer must be great for preventing such injuries as 'sawblade
finger' ! Oh, the agonies of cutting through a stack of 0.3mm
jumprings. There was a thread a while ago on this very subject but
I have not got round to sorting out an easy to make cutting system
for myself. On the workshop injuries theme, about 10 years ago when I
was just starting out, I wound some rings on a large steel nail. Held
the nail in my left hand and proceeded to cut the rings with a small
circular saw held in a rotary tool. The result was entirely
predictable. The blade skidded off the nail and I ended up in
casualty having sawn right through to the bone of my index finger
tip. A lesson I will never forget. It instilled in me a healthy
respect for all the tools I use.
I have just read the latest postings on flexshaft mishaps and
workshop injuries it has confirmed my resolve to see if I can buy
some prescription goggles........................
