making

more than one ring so I went out and bought this if your only going to make one ring you might not want to go buy this you might just want to have a neighbor or someone close with a drill you can drill a hole in the center of your

coin

you will need some sanding blocks of course I like these foam sanding blocks they are easy to work with easy to handle easy to make they are really cheap , we'll be using three quarters of an inch pvc pipe maybe this is just one of the tools in uh when you're working on these rings here's the key right? check this out again check this mat this mallet right here this is high density nylon right here I got this one from shore freight I went into the store there it was on the shelf I paid 10 bucks for it now I found a link go online and look under the video description i'll link it for you i think they're charging like 18 bucks or 20 bucks for this we're going to need a torch of some sort ok something to heat that coin red hot now y'all What I'm gonna have to do is kick back, grab a bag of popcorn, a big old lollipop, a slurpee, something like that and, uh, let's make a ring out of this thing, yeah, by the way, I'm wearing a 7 16 hit with this particular coin.

You can also use a half inch punch, but the distance between that black line and the edge of the coin will resemble the width of your ring. Just drop your die right on it and then we'll punch it with a hammer blow and punch that hole through nice and sweet it usually takes more than a whack to get through these and just hold your ground you don't want to move that coin boom ok hold it steady and give it a good whack boom we're done come here to the old anvil party hall hit it with the bang all over.

By the way, folks, let's take a look at how we didn't do it wrong. How does that look? it's optional not required you can do the job without this but it will help if you can do it the reason i didn't mention this at the beginning is because a set like this said a dapping block mate i couldn't them for less than 40 dollars so you might not want to go out and buy one of these they are pretty expensive and then we're going to form that and that will give us a head start before we put it on the chuck we'll already have it bent substantially so remember the side what you want on the outside of the ring I want that side is to be nice in the dapping block remember that and then we're going to start forming this when you use a dapping block it opens up the hole for you so you can put it in there before I use that dapping block in this this was not big enough the whole 7 16 is not big enough to fit in the chuck to start with and what you would basically do is place your coin in a soft part not a knot in the center of his chuck. the hole and then wham hit that a couple times with a hammer and force it through that's where all these marks are coming from is you're hitting this to finish that off and it just started under the end of the mandrel barely mandrel it's ok and Before I start hitting this I'm going to anneal it so I'm going to turn off the lights so I can show you here you don't want it to be bright bright yellow you don't want to melt your coin so come on take it one step further you don't need a big flame honking there but and then you know i got my confidence avon tweezers you know i'm not too hard on this i'd like to make it as possible and then we're gonna dance that coin in that flame moving it around until it's red hot it's not going to take long ok the color is changing you can look at it and see it's already getting hot and glowing there we are we're glowing in the water come on and now my friend that's overcooked now another thing you'll notice right away it's you I'm going to say, holy cow, dude, what's up with the color of that ring?
You just grilled it good. No, no, don't worry. scale or something but you can see it's really dark and at first glance you might think you've blown it but don't worry we're going to go back to the chuck and start working on this and what I like. what I have to do is hold my finger on this and just start don't push yourself I mean the secret It's just to work slowly we're just trying to bend that evenly and evenly as we go around the ring and you'll get better at this. you know this requires a bit of you can see i'm not the best i mean i'm just a guy still learning as i go here is another method some use and even i use it if you put some wood on it ok and just start tapping so you can see how it always wants to slide and what we're trying to do is pretty much trying to bend this pretty much we're trying to bend this without pushing it down on the mandrel and that's really the uh, I don't know the art or whatever you want to call it, no big heavy hits, just a little bit as you spin it, just hitting it, don't go crazy, this isn't it. one quick thing this is definitely more of a patience thing especially if you have an expensive coin in there like a silver you can see we're already sliding wn the chuck is getting bigger we're going to have to have that folded by the time we're here we don't even close so you can see why that dapping block would be useful because with every hit of the mallet that hole gets a little bit bigger i always wanna be looking at it you know what i mean you don't wanna be wham wham all like i'm paul bunyan you're fine tuning it boy I'm really running out of time so I'm going to anneal it again because I've already handled it and it's already getting stiff so we're going to anneal it again to soften it up and then flip it you know ? it's about a race to

double

that before it gets down to size and there we're almost red there we're softened up now we're going to turn it upside down ok tell me look at how it's not quite perfect so if you could narrow it down to this scenario all sized to make it work if it was like a five now and you needed a six then you would just use and our pvc really and just push it down just to round it out around the edges take it out of there and you can see it's not quite perfect , I mean it's close, it's close, so what we're going to do is use the mandrel to our advantage and just push this down using our pvc here to round it out I want that touch on that mandrel all the way around what size do we have at half past six we're going to do it guys for a minute there I didn't think we were going to do it but I think we're going to even it out even Jack you know you can see a little bit of play in there you know if you have a side that doesn't You need to scroll down, you know. it's not perfect even you're just going to put it on and then you know at an angle so just one side hits it and just tap it down so it's nice and levels out slowly this is the name of the game so we dead at six and three quarters and that's how you use this mandrel it's the edge that hits your mark first that's your ring size i thought i was in awe sounds the same.
I thought maybe the center of the ring on our mark is going to be the size, but no, right there, six and three quarters dead and how we look, we look pretty good. It may not be exactly perfect, but very close. by the time we sand this lip off the edge of this coin and it's done you won't even be able to tell this side the side that we drilled might be a little bit sharp in fact it will be sharp we're going to take our sandpaper put it down and just give it a little love and sanding it down nice and smooth doesn't take long no big deal now that it feels good ready to rock you see that edge right there that can be a little cumbersome to wear no big deal but if you're someone who gives your hand and squeeze your fingers into this edge that can be a little awkward so we're going to sand this edge about 45 around we're also going to do the same thing with this edge sand that edge to 45 well it's not great deal just take and our sandpaper this is where a little heavier sandpaper comes in depending on how much you have to sand.
I'm going to use a little bit coarser grit here just to start and we're just going to work this edge in a 45 and try to sand this edge down so it's nice and sweet all the way around. We'll do it on both sides and then clean it up with some higher grit sandpaper to polish it up, but the ring formation is done, now it's just a fine adjustment. This is a really super fine, super fine piece of 2000 grit sandpaper. You can get it in the car body section. of the coin you even got the yosemite there's that cool yosemite valley is what it says come on yeah look that's cool so jewelry scale can be used to your advantage to be able depending on which way you want your ring to look at this would be called as an antique look an ant finish so now what i am going to do is polish this outside there is a link under this video on what polish i use and how i polish them to a mirror finish , so I'm going to rub a little bit of that on top and a little bit of that on the inside and I'll show you the final product not too bad it got a little carried away by the glaze we could have polished this to a mirror if we wanted like that I wanted to leave a little bit in there to add a bit of contrast.
I know the glow isn't helping much, you can barely see it, but hey, you know for a quarter, I mean it's not bad, anyway, that's how you do it. grab your mallet grab a coin start practicing and you can even get it with practice you can get it the smallest one i made out of a quarter was a size five but i think if i keep practicing i can even get better like this that anyway, this is a fan child coming up to you guys, have a good one guys.
