The tool has an internal anticlastic curve which when closed will go to a size J and a width of 12mm when fully closed.

 

If you are making a wider ring, close it less and you’ll get a wider band. The curves will extend out to size 34mm so about Size Z+20.

 

The bigger the band the less anticlastic effect you’ll get as standard from the squish effect, but you can follow up with a shaped delrin/nylon or steel hammer to chase the curves in.

A full instructions sheet is provided with the tool.

There are 2 mandrel sizes available, regular and small. The regular size suits spinner rings that have a 10mm or wider band. The small version is more suitable for thinner bands of less than 10mm.

    Spinner ring squashed tool

    I was looking for a simple to use tool for my students to make spinner rings. This does the job well but wouldn't use it for metal over .75mm thick due to the force needed. However, did get good results using it in my hydraulic press. Only negative is it could be better finished on the ends. Mine was very rough with a sharp burr which needed filing before use.

    Excellent piece of kit that has revolutionised spinner ring making. Even though this is the smaller sized tool I've been able to hack the way it is used to increase its versatility and allow me to use it successfully with different sized rings.
