    Concerns for the indusry

    I found this link to how advances in photography are impacting photographers. I saw some similarities between this and the complaints and concerns I have heard here so I thought I would share: http://petapixel.com/2013/04/08/an-infographic-on-creating-sustainability-in-the-photography-industry/

    Wolf Teeth and Wire!

    I like the Gremlin's Idea, just drill a single hole at the top of the tooth and thread one ring through it. or just push wire through the hole and twist a connector onto the top.

    Best Cutters for Stainless Steel?

    I use my Ringinator EZ and I use the gallon jug of kids bubbles as lubricant. The only issue I have with this process is that sometimes it seems that the cut shifts off center and cuts like // instead of ||.

    First project down, questions on second

    Hello, Aith! Welcome to the addiction. My first hauberk was made from real easy 12ga BA 1/2 inch ID. After wearing it a few hours I noticed that wherever it touched my skin it left the black rub off and became annoying. I soon made a new hauberk with the same stainless steel rings you used for your dice bag. It did weigh a few pounds, but if you weave in a few belt loops and wear a thick belt you can put some of the weight on your hips instead of all of it on your shoulders. I have also made a hauberk from 18ga 3/16id AA that is a nice compromise in the weight department. I prefer the look and feel of the stainless, but some situations call for the lighter armor. I wear a shirt under my heavier armors that uses fur on sheep skin as the padding. The padding works great and I love how I can wear any color under the stainless without worrying about rub off.

  9. here is one I found a photo of carved from wood. I dont know how to convert it to the type you may need, but does this help?
  10. Jon, Can you do the wolf variant of the Trinity Celtic knot? I would buy a hundred or so of those or a single wolf paw print. PM me if you can do either. or both.

    How do you work?

    I like to work on a piece of leather that is roughly 1 square foot.. I originally started doing this to protect the table's finish from scratches and such, but started liking how the rings were easier to weave into the work as the leather seemed to hold the pieces aloft just a bit. I found some small stainless steel bowls at IKEA that I keep my rings in as I work.
  12. There is a thread here: http://www.theringlord.org/forum/index.php?/topic/11331-my-winding-rig-picture-heavy/ that shows the winding rig I use, but if you search the forums you will find this question discussed multiple times.

    Troubles with dicebags

    my previous dice bag was made from a purple velvet-like material with some gold embroidery on it and the dice seemed to rub together in the bag and I occasionally had to replace numbers on dice. I would say most of the number loss would be from the edges of other dice, not from the bag wall.
