 no big secret if you want to know how to make it step up and say "I" see the rest of the pics in my gallery this is my first one after looking at them last night... had to figure it out ..piece of cake ...this was not made for acuracy but just to see if it worked the next one could be better ....if there is a next one my background is I'm a traditional jeweler and cad/cam jeweler/designer

is there a way to post more than one picture on a post? I could show a series of the technique I don't know if it's the right way but looks like it works!
Still crazy after all these years....

You can put many pictures into one post --- you just cut and paste the link from each one into the post.

first of all let me explain I am on several other sites and it really gets me when someone post a "look what I made' and then when someone asks them how you did that their answer 'I can't tell you' ..so what is the point of posting if your not going to help anyone....anyway here is what you need to do it 'my' way
1.) ring mandrel
2.) propane tourch (optional) you can also heat it on the stove
3.) ring stretcher (optional)
4.) rawhide mallet
  I used a quarter....cut your hole...heat the coin (anneal it) till it turns dull red after it stops glowing dip in water to cool..I then set it in my ring stretcher (optional) and compressed it do start the shaping ... repeat the annealing process several times while making the ring keeping the metal soft to be able to work it....then put it on the ring mandrel and hammer to finish the shaping (turn it the oposite way I have shown when shaping) polish when finished
if you don't have a ring stretcher just work it on the mandrel!

Neat! I'd actually never seen one of these before. It's nice to not have come across an "I can't tell you" before I did.
