If it gets hot just drop it into cold water. The heat goes instantly. It works with a blowtorch so should work for you Smiley

SesSpringett, I thought about it, because I remembered doing that in jewelry class in high school, but i wasn't sure how it'd work with the water + the dremel (obviously i would dry it off prior to continuing to work on it, but just in case).  that's a good tip though Cheesy

has anyone attempted this with foreign coins? My aunt gave us a bag of those a while ago. I'm currently trying with a cuban centavos, which feels like it's made of aluminium.

anything metal should work, but aluminum would probably be too soft a metal to stay in form as either a coin or a ring.

k so one of the tutorial links(the second one) doesnt work and i was wondering if anyone can offer some advice.... i dont have a dremel so i cant necessarily use that and i also dont have a clamp thing to hold the ring while i drill like the first tute shows. so any advice on what to do? and when you drill the hole do you just drill til the hole is as big as u want or does a chunk of the metal actually remove itself from the ring?

for the drilling, i drilled a decent sized hole and then sanded/ground the inside until it was as big as i wanted it.  also i didn't use a clamp but had a smaller bit dremel and a fairly large coin so i held it on two edges with my finger - i don't think you should try this though, there's a big risk of injury.  clamps aren't very expensive, and worth your finger/nail anyway.
