So something weird is going on.

I tried using the tutorial with TRL saw cut 16g 1/4 inch Anodized Al rings (supposed AR of 4.1) and the thing gets too tight for a tea light at step 10. I also have ...

Okay so the first one failed (my fault). I tried to make it with the scales flipped and after doing step 8 it becomes too tight and won't fit the tea light.

So when buying scales make sure the und ...

I bet the weaves with tutorials are much, much more likely to have gallery images of other people making them.

I know some like to figure out the weaves but I suspect I am not the only lazy one who ...

Thank you VERY much! I didn't mean to cause you all of that work.

I never stop finding it interesting how such a small measurement makes a difference when you are magnifying it row after row.

Any news on what size (in "normal" sizes) rings work best for this? The holidays are coming and I am trying to decide what rings to buy to make a bunch of these for gifts.

Thanks for sha ...

Don't sell anodized aluminum short either (you can tailor the color to the person -- the pastel shades can be very subtle). It is easy to work and not too pricey.

Thanks for all of the advice. I had kind of worked my way through a lot of those ideas. I like the idea of frost for silver but it would cost me about $35 extra to go that way.

I will probably tr ...

I am in the planning stages to do a 4 in 1 Euro inlay as a gift. The inlay would (ideally) be made up of silver, blue and white.

The majority of it would be silver so I would like to use BA as tha ...

A lot of time there! It's nice to see someone in armor smiling rather than trying to be Mr. Toughguy.

I would like to ask you a few questions about the scale coif if I may. I am in the beginning ...
