Oy! A crisis! Only my third project. Want to step up a little bit, but not frustrating. So Slight variant on my plain 4:1 European.

l'm on Ringlord ordering rings now. (First project was Home Depot scratch, not doing that again (plus tendonitis now)

(project: same size bracer main black stainless 14ga
5/16". Snakeweave with yellow anodized aluminum)
Was suggested 16ga 1/4"
I really want to go smaller so it's more blackened
stainless with thinner lines of yellow.
1/4 is one below main 5/16.
Next down is 7/32"
One more is 3/16" - what I'm looking at.
At 16ga 3/16" do you think I CAN weave into 14ga
5/16"?

If I’m understanding you right, you want to know if Snake Skin can be made with alternating rows of 14SWG 5/16”, and 16SWG 3/16” TRL rings. If so, I would suggest no. It should be possible to put 4 of the larger rings onto one of the smaller, however, you likely won’t end up with enough clearance to continue the sheet. It’s dependant on exact sizes, but I suspect no based on a quick bit put together with .062” AR of 3.3, and .080” AR of 4.3, which are close to what you’re considering.
