FOR SALE: BA Rings

Hi All,

I started making my own rings 6+ months ago and would like to get more practice so I'm looking to you. I currently have 14,16,18,19, and 20 SWG in BA (AL5356). I can make rings 3/32, 1/8, 5/32, 3/16, 7/32, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, and 1/2".

I tumble all my rings in walnut shell prior to shipping and will generally make the order within a few days.

All rings are cut with a saw using a ringinator setup.

I'd like to start at pricing based off TRL with a 10% discount on saw cut rings.

Just thought I'd throw this out there because I don't consume as many rings as I can make and I'd like to help make the purchase of the ringinator repay a bit.

Any takers?

Are you willing to do sizes that TRL does not do? Specifically, I would be interested in 14g 3/16".

And just to be sure, you are using SWG which makes the 14g .08" or so?

Yes, it is SWG, I should have mentioned that.

For custom rings, I'd have to try. Also, I'm not accounting for springback on this, so the rings would be what they are. Thats quite a tight ring!

You did say SWG, but, from what I understand, aluminum is typically AWG, so I was wondering if you had measured, or whether your wire source specified.

I've used 12AWG (14SWG) 3/16" jeweler's saw cut copper rings for a few things:
Daisy Chain 1
Daisy Chain 2
Double Daisies 1
Double Daisies 2
Matted Daisies (I think a tiny bit larger AR, or maybe even two ARs, would be better for this one)
Sierpinski's Triangle

I've got a few Japanese 4 in 1 Cubes I've made with score and break cut galvanized steel and copper, and they are more than large enough for connector rings in basic (i.e. non-kinged) Japanese sheets (Japanese Weaves: Minimum AR Considerations).

So yeah, tight, but not unuseable Smile.

I suspect he is useing MIG wire often sold either in metric or standard decimal measurements.
Converting one to the other is fairly easy to do the math.

I'm using TRL wire, I had a large order of it once so I could get a solid base before finding other wire sources. If anyone knows an online retailer domestically for the same quality, I'd happily look into them.

check with larger commercial welding suppliers.
5356 is becoming a lot more common use either metric or standard measurements.
