my rig is:
drill press, laying sideways, a coil-guide, push the coil through the blade. Works fantastic on alum ('bout 2 rings every 3-4 seconds) not bad on galvy, but terrible on stainless. My dri ...

Sounds like an interesting concept, similar to the design I'm working on- mine is the whole machine though, not just a guide.

How do the rings exit through the side shoot? For example, in my design ...

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that you are thinking of 3 sheets in which they all intersect on an axis, whereas in what I was refering to, the 3 sheets intersect at a single point. I have been ...

Returning to the 3D seam, I can visualise a seam of that sort, but it may not be the one you are referring to. To make what I am thinking of, take a small sheet of E4-1 and pull it the wrong way (ie, ...

For elfsheet, step up the AR. A very nice weave to use if you step down the AR a bit is Coyote's maille. At that certain AR you picked, I'd suggest Japanese 12-2, or maybe GSG.

What kind of setup are you using and how fast is your current blade speed?

Ok, wakefreak- bolties and large wire cutters are not the uni-tool compatible with all maille. You like big heavy galvanised steel wire, so they work fine, but for someone using small rings or preciou ...

That is a neat project! How big is this going to be? Depending on the weave and the ratio of ring size to the panel size, you might need reinforcement or not. If you have a tight weave with fewer ring ...

JPL is just spiral, so it's not that bad if you go 1 ring at a time, and once you get the hang, you can speedweave.

Don't look at it so much as lenght, but rather as how loose or tight it fits you. ...

I am making an inlay in 14g 5/16, and it is about 120-130 rings long, and that turns out to be 3 feet 4 inches at full stretch and 2 feet 8 inches at half stretch.

As many as needed so that the outer row is always not too tight, but not too loose. It is a thing of feel, for different ARs give different results.

Really? This may well be the case. I'm a little surprised though, because I've been making E-4-1 with aluminum rings in this size, and I didn't get much for springback when coiling that wire. I'l ...

Beware about sand- it is a strong abrasive. Sand is good for harder metals like stainless, but it eats through softer metals if you don't moniter it constantly. I don't work with silver, but seeing th ...

Not that many. The only reason that you can even make E4-1 at that size is because of springback. Try 14g 5/16. If you want an expanding circle coif, you can use this size, but the queen ring has to b ...
