Nothing spectacular, just a simple dice bag or similar

I suggest, that if a die bag were to be made from .064" - 1/4"ID, using the expanded circle for the bottom and E4-1 for the rest, approximately the size of a beer bottle, it should take about 3 or 4 hours. Having never made a die bag, in particular, I can't say for certain. I have, however, used .064" - 1/4"ID with the expanded circle and E4-1 in other applications.

I am not bragging at all when I say this but I made a simple dice bag from aluminum 220 wire (very soft ). I coiled and saw cut the rings also under just 2 Hrs. I am quite positive that hundreds of you can do the very same thing. Oh yeah and the dice bag looked extremely crappy with unflush ends and hanging chads

The harder metal you work with, so I've noticed, the more time you spend coiling, cutting, and weaving. Producing an aluminum ring and a steel ring may be the difference between a half or a whole second. Given that a diebag is sure to be one or two thousand rings, it's no surprise that weaving a very soft metal went a bit quickly.

Having never made a die bag, I can't say this all with certainty. Though, I have made a beer coozy, which I think is nearly the same thing. So this information is, pretty much, just a well educated estimation.

Did I say thousand? That sounds retarded. I'm sure I meant hundred.
