The Ringinator®™ EZ is the solution for all your jump ring cutting needs. It
is a simple and compact design almost anyone can use.
Currently the Ringinator®™ ships in about 6 weeks.
Also Included in the box:
**Drill speed controller.
**Digital Laser photo tachometer.
**Lubrication pump & extra fine metal filter.
**Comes with one standard blade to get you started. ("standard" blade to use
is the 0.010" thickness)
Thinner blades (0.006" Saw Blades) are used when you want to remove the least
amount of material. Such as when making tiny rings, or working with metals such
as Silver & Gold.
We also have these in our custom made Ringinator® brand saw blades.
These are not included, and they cost extra.
Contact us if you are interested.
What the Ringinator®™ does is take these long coils (like you see in the
detail photo to the side) and using a precision jewelers saw slices them right
down the center to create individual jump rings with perfectly flush ends. In
• Use an electric drill to power it. (Drill not included)
A built in bracket keeps it secure and completely hands free. All you have to
do is plug the drill in to the speed controller, lock the trigger to "on", and
then adjust the speed. The speed controller in effect replaces the trigger of
the drill. So instead of adjusting the speed using the trigger, you plug the
drill into the controller and use a knob. In combination with the included
laser tachometer, you can get perfect repeatability in cuts over time.
• Exact speed control.
The key to quality is repeatability. To eliminate all guesswork we include a
laser tachometer that will allow you to measure in real-time the exact RPM
speed the drill is going, with the push of a button. Using the laser and the
speed controller, you can get repeatable results time after time.
You are not limited to only cutting soft metals like copper or aluminum. With
the Ringinator®™ you can cut even the hardest of Stainless Steel, Titanium, and
even challenging metals like Niobium or Argentium.
You simply feed in coil after coil. As many as you want, in any length you
want. Unlike other tools, you are not limited to one length coil; and you don't
have to take half the tool apart between coils.
• No vibrations
Connecting a drill directly to the cutting shaft transfers any vibration from
the drill directly to the blade, causing issues. We solved that using a custom
flexible power coupler to attach the drill to the blade. This powers the
cutting blade without transferring any vibrations from the drill.
• Cordless cutting
Hook up a cordless drill and cut rings anywhere you want! At shows, craft
fairs, clubs, demonstrations, think of the possibilities. People love seeing
stuff being made. (Note: The speed controller does not work with cordless
Click to zoom in.Without lubrication the blade can get too hot. This heat
causes the material to become soft and weld to the teeth. (See image at right)
To cut metal you need to use constant lubrication. This keeps the blade cool,
keeps the metal cool, and helps it cut faster.
The included low-flow pump provides a constant stream of coolant/lubricant
directly to the blade. The blade sits inside an enclosure that has coolant
constantly flowing into it. This keeps it submerged in lubricant at all times.
Underneath is a small catch basin where the cutting dust and overflow fluid
collect to settle; the fluid is then pumped again for re-use. Using a water
soluble cutting oil works best. After all your rings are cut you can just rinse
them with warm water and all the oil washes away; leaving you with clean ready
to use rings.
Built in lubrication is another unique feature found only on the Ringinator®™
Bonus: The lubrication system allows for almost 100% collection of the cutting
dust. That means that when cutting precious metals, like silver and gold, you
have next to no loss. Also, you can collect the cutting dust and sell it in
small vials. This can earn you considerably more than you would get by simply
returning it for re-smelting. Customers love that kind of stuff, and it is a
great complimentary product.
• Small size
As we all know, no matter how big your studio is table space is always at a
premium. The footprint of the Ringinator®™ EZ is very small, taking up a
minimum of space. With the drill removed, it is also under 6" in height, so it
is easy to store when not in use.
The Ringinator®™ is CNC machined out of aerospace grade 6061-T6 Aluminum.
The smallest coil that can cut is 22g wire with a 3/32"ID (total OD = 0.14"
(3.5mm)). Unmodified, the largest it will cut is coils with a 2" OD (50mm). It
will cut almost any thickness wire, in almost any material.
The blade guiding groove accomplishes the job of lining up the coil and
supporting it while it is being cut by the blade, and is a unique feature
available only on the Ringinator®™.
If you use a lot of jump rings the Ringinator®™ pays for itself in a very
short amount of time. No need to keep large amounts of different sizes on hand
anymore. You just need to keep a small amount of wire in stock and your
favorite size mandrels. A pound of 20 gauge high quality shiny stainless steel
wire can be bought for as low as $10. That same pound in jump rings ordered
from a Catalog, Website, or Bead Store, would cost you hundreds.
NOTE: Our 220v drill speed controllers have British plugs. They will work in
Australia and Europe, but you may need a plug adapter.
