    Making rings vs buying rings

    That seems to be a DIY version of my Ringinators. Seems nicely made.

    That is very nice. Good work. How flexible is the sheet?

    [Question] Ringinator

    Those are older models that are currently discontinued and no longer available. The EZ is the model currently available for sale.

    Since this thread was first started 5 years ago, I now have the cnc & metalworking equipment to make the dies and parts needed to make such metal scales. I'd be interested in giving it another try.

    FS: 12" 85 piece rod set

    You mentioned 3 foot rods, I didnt see it was for a set of 12" ones. I suppose you are cutting them down? I aint trolling, see my sig I use up to 6 foot rods in my coilers. But if they arent totally straight they wobble at speed.

    FS: 12" 85 piece rod set

    How straight are these rods? Do they wobble at all when they are spun up to 3600prm?

    Large SplitRing Hauberk + Odinblade

    I'll trade ya a Ringinator or a meteorite for the shirt. Not interested in the sword though.

    Matte coloured rings

    Using it as-is should work just fine. I've never noticed scratching on any of the rings I've made. If you do notice any, a bit of masking tape applied to the V groove will fix that. So the coil slides on the tape instead of on the metal.

    Clear + Black Polycarbonate Scales

    Are they laser cut or injection molded? Are they as thin as the metal scales? How tough are they? And how easy do they break? That thin point by the hole seems fragile...

    Cutting Coils

    For cutting coils my suggestion would be to get a Ringinator.
