Sooo, i've been doing ALOT of research and i found out, that i would like to cut and anodize my own niobium at some point, and i guess that leaves me the Ringinator as the only machine i can use for cutting (right?).. I've tried sawcutting with jewelers saw and after breaking quite a few blades and acquiring quite a few injuries, i decided that i had seen to much blood and wanted to spend the money on a machine (okay - maybe it wasn't that bad, but i did bleed a bit.. Laughing)..

But how is the Ringinator for cutting silver, goldfill/double or maybe even pure gold (i wont deny that i might consider doing gold at some point)..?
I've read somewhere that it "takes too much", what are your opinion on that..?

I really want to know everything before i go and order a $500 equipment.. Sad

Thank you.. Smile

Does the 500$ include shipping and costumes charges?
For such items you also need insurance.


There are many tools that will work.
Grinders (on a stand) with thin cutting wheels, dremel type tools and bits with thin to really thin cutting wheels that can work in common drills with the right power and revolutions settings, and maybe even an oscillating saw.

You cannot really know how a tool will suit your needs unless you have a little test-drive.

No, its without shipping, customs and insurance..

Well, even tho im creative, im also very lazy (it some things), and i think i'd prefer getting and already working setup rather than making a jig on my own. Sad

i have a ringinator and it works great for cutting silver. it comes mostly ready for cutting and you don't need to do much. you will need to buy a drill and lubrication.

Any machine that can cut niobium will have no problem with any precious metals except perhaps platinum/iridium alloys.

Y'know, that might just be crazy enough to work!
