Let's go - step by step

Step 1 4

Mark the cut

Marking the pipe with a marker.

Let's start creating your new ring by marking the width of the ring on a clean copper pipe with a marker pen. This will be the place where you will later cut. Also mark the line where you will make the main opening that will allow the ring to adapt to the size of your finger.

Step 2 4

Decorate the surface

Engraving the homemade ring.

Once you have marked out what is going to be the ring, hold the copper pipe with the help of the Dremel Multi-Vise to make the job precise and secure. Now, use the 114 milling tip to "tap" the pipe to give it a rough texture for a more eye-catching look. Note that decorating the surface of the ring before cutting will help you work more comfortably.

Step 3 4

Cut the ring

Cutting the homemade ring.

With the 4250 and the metal cutting disc SC456, cut the line you drew earlier so that the ring can be made to fit any size. Once this is done, separate the ring from the rest of the tubing and widen it to your size with the help of pliers. Now your ring will have the perfect shape to fit your finger.

Step 4 4

Sand and polish the ring

Grinding the homemade ring.

Once the ring is ready, all that's left to do is to give it a few final touches to give it a perfect finish. To do this, grind the burr with the 952 accessory. To make the ring comfortable to wear, it is advisable to round off the edges and tips. Now you can polish the piece to give it a little shine for a more eye-catching effect. You can use the 414 felt wheel together with the 421 polishing compound. This compound is usually put in the accessory. Start the felt wheel and bring it close to the paste as if you were polishing the paste itself, so that it soaks well into the wheel.
