    How to order custom anodized aluminum

    I'd be interested in 18swg 9/32" black for sure, but not $100 of it >_< Would also still be interested in 18swg 9 /64" in black, red & purple, but can't afford the $200 mins per colour

    How to order custom anodized aluminum

    So it sounds like I may have a group of anywhere from 6-9 people interested in saw cut AA 18swg 9/64" in red and purple (and potentially green). I've got all the math worked out for cost per person, but I'm curious how shipping would work. Would I have each person PayPal you (TRL) individually, and you'd divide up the rings and ship out? Or would that be entirely my responsibility?

    How to order custom anodized aluminum

    Ah, okay, gotcha. And you answered the question I was about to ask too, it is $200 per size&colour combination. Which means I'd be looking at $200 for 18932 SX AA black, $200 for 18964 SX AA black, etc. I found somewhere to post asking if anyone else is interested, so we'll see what happens. Would custom colours like the old turquoise and the machine cut violet fall in the same price range?

    How to order custom anodized aluminum

    Oh wow, I derped on my math xD And wow, I don't need 2k, let alone 20k. I guess I was a little surprised by the $200 because I thought I'd remembered somebody saying something about minimum $30 batches or something like that, but I could be completely wrong. 6-8 weeks, so end of late March/early April? And you said it's less cost-effective, but how much would a smaller batch be? Out of curiosity, what would be required for you guys to consider adding 18swg 9/32" and/or 18swg 9/64" as standard sizes in AA?

    How to order custom anodized aluminum

    I like being cost-effective too, but I certainly don't need 2,000 rings in one size. I don't suppose there's a way I can split that $200 batch between sizes or colours? Or would it be more worth my while to see if there's someone who wants to split the order with me?

    How much would I have to order to get saw cut black AA in 18swg 9/32"? And for that matter: saw cut AA 18swg 9/64" in black, red, and purple?

    Rubber Rings

    Well, I'll tell you guys now, I'd order GITD 16g 5/16" and GITD 16g 1/4" in a heartbeat. GITD 18g 3/16" or 18g 1/4" would be pretty awesome too. I like the sounds of teal rubber rings, but in solid colours I only really use black, and make up the colours with AA rings. Buuuut brown might be cool, stretchy steampunk maille!

    Rubber Rings

    I keep glancing at the main site to see if any other sizes of glow in the dark have been added - are you guys still working on those? Cause I don't do anything in 14g... I'd love to see the glow in 16g 5/16", 16g 1/4", 18g 3/16"... Also, is there any chance of you guys ever doing 20awg equivalent rubber? I could really use some 20g 1/8" black EPDM

    Availability of rings for Dragonscale

    I've used 18swg 9/32" and 18swg 3/16", but they don't offer 18swg 9/32" in AA unless you custom order. I think you can get that size in copper/brass/bronze though? I think I've also heard 18swg 1/4" and 20awg 5/32" work?

    Byzantine using rainbow hematite donuts

    I love this SO MUCH. It's inspired me to attempt to make something with the hematite donuts as well ?

    Bad batch?

    I understand that this is difficult to handle as of the age of the rings, but I appreciate your reply nonetheless =) As far as I know, the rings were never stepped on or abraded in any way - as soon as they were in my possession I opened the bag and transferred them into a storage case, and since they've been in that storage case there's never been any weight on them aside from normal gravity xD My only other guess for weight having been applied to them would be whatever they were with when they were shipped, as I think we all know the postal service isn't always exactly gentle with parcels. However, I don't recall that being a particularly large order, and the only other things in with them would've been other sizes of AA and BA...so I don't think they would've been crushed under anything they were shipped with. My photo does compare machine cut to saw cut, yes. I don't have any other machine cut 18swg 1/4" to compare to, and I've never really had an issue like this with other sizes. I've had 18g 3/16" that've had some sligtly off ones, but I find it's less noticeable in that size. I've used these purple rings in Full Persian 6 and Half Persian 4, and haven't noticed the shape there - where I noticed the issue was when trying to do Helm Chain with them. I'm not too concerned about a refund, I mainly just wanted to know if something had happened with this particular batch regarding the splotchy colouring, but I understand that the order was made too long ago to be able to tell. Thanks for getting back to me, Bernice =)

    Bad batch?

    I bought some AA1814darkpurple in Order #222986 with a frIend on November 17, 2013 (2013-11-17), and I'm having some issues. In a bag of 500 rings, I've pulled out over 100 rings so far that are unusable due to patchy colouring or because they're misshapen (that is, they are not round when closed). I am well aware of the presence of touch marks in the machine cut AA anodizing process, but this is well beyond touch marks. I have attached photos showing the issue, and am happy to take and attach additional photos upon request. What I'd like to know is if I just happened to get a bad batch of rings and I'll have to live with it (20%+ duds?) or did something go wrong somewhere... I understand that almost 6 months later is far too late for a refund, particularly on an opened bag of rings, but I'd like to know if I have any options. Cheers, --Flare
