ok so does pounding on the ring make it smaller as it gets thicker?

yes, the more you pound it out the smaller you will ge tit.. sooo say you have super tiny fingers, the band will be thicker

I've become addicted to these also.  I made one out of a Canadian nickel, I think it was, which turned out really nice.  Not too wide, and nice and shiny silver.  I've also made one out of a 1955 quarter, but my only problem was with the grinding.  I used my dremel grinding tool, but since there was lots of silver in it, the melted silver is all over my grinding bit.  I have to figure out a way to fix that.  But it turned out great.  I made another out of a Sacajawea coin, and its about 7-8 mm wide, but it has lots of copper in it, so the edges are silver and the middle is copper.  i left it brushed instead of polishing it.

We have a bench vise with a flat plate, like an anvil base.  Works really nice for hammering.  I use a pretty large hammer, which makes the job go faster.

these look great!  my friend had a ring made out of a dime and he always called it his "dime-in-ring" (sounds like diamond ring).  kind of funny, you should try dimes

Tried to replace my husband's lost ring with a '64 quarter. With an UGH it only fit his pinkie. (He doesn't wear pinkie rings)  Huh So I went chop shop on the thing and sliced it and bent it around a ratchet nut that was the size of MY finger.  To hide the "toe-ringesque" overlap I added a cute concoction of goldstone. More cocktail ringy than I EVER wear but, I actually like the outcome! Here let me show you...

ok, i dont mean to spoil the fun but... isnt this illegal? i thought you couldnt destroy money.

Nope! It's only illegal if you're trying to use this destroyed money/you're doing it with the intent of cheating people, pretty much.

From this site
"FACT #4: Know how and when it is illegal to destroy money.

Nothing in the law forbids anyone from destroying coins, in spite of a belief to the contrary. Defacing or mutilating a coin and then passing it as currency is another matter. The intent to commit fraud is what is being penalized in this case. As far as paper money is concerned, leaving money in your pants pockets to be drenched in a washing machine wont harm your bills. Thats because they are made out of linen and cotton fibers, which arent affected by water. On this note, heres an interesting but unverified observation from an online forum:

    Its illegal to modify money in a fraudulent way (i.e. make a defective mint Penny and sell it for a thousand dollars), but it is perfectly legal to retrieve the base metals from money, just as it is legal to possess shredded paper money (and use it for stuffing pillows, toys, etc)."

Tada. Cheesy
It is a myth that goes around a lot, though.
