Hi all I have been trying to figure out how to determine the size
of silver tube I need to purchase to tube set 5mm and 8mm stones to
begin with? I would set both cabs and faceted stones. I have looked
in Rio and I cant figure it out. I know they used to have the
equasion on how to figure it out; I have tried on my own but am not
sure if I am doing it right. I dont want to order the wrong tube
size. I know I need a stone setting bur to drill down the wall to
make the seat for each size of stone I wish to mount.
If anyone does this and orders from Rio I would be very appreciative
if you could share with me the item you buy to set 5 -8mm stones? or
how you figure out which tube to buy?
For example: OD:.144" Wall ID: .080" Min. Thick.:.032" Item number:
100-954 (k - sterling seamless tubing) Page 44 in the year issue 8/2002
Please feel free to email me offlist.
