Spike Star Kit Trouble

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had serious issues with the small spike star kit not fitting together?  I understand that it is a structural weave, but I can't get more than 3 of the final set of 18ga 1/4" rings into it without opening rings.  


I've tried using AA rings since they are a little thinner, and still had this problem.  I've also tried using some 18ga 5/32" rings instead of the 1/4" rings, to give me more room, but I still am not able to finish the star.


Are there any tricks I'm missing to get it to work?

Are you using the exact ring sizes listed in the instructions?

Did you make the rings or are they ours? 

What material and cut?


I used the rings from the kit you sell.  Everything in it is from that kit.  I first started with the exact sizes you have listed, and the problem show was even worse.  To try to fix the problem I upped the 18ga 1/4 rings to 18ga 5/16.  This got me a little more space, but not enough to get all the spikes connected.

OK so you have 5 20g 5/32" thru the loops in the spikes?

Then 19g 3/16" thru that ring and folded back beside the spike?

18g 5/16" as the center ?

Then you started with 18g 1/4" as the sandwich rings?


I can't check your order thru messages on the forum - so I suggest emailing. 

If all of this is correct then the ony answer is a ring size is wrong or off. I'd have to get you to check each ring. We have a way to do this but we should change to email. 

Please email directly to order at theringlord dot com.
