You sure you want a SS ring? If your fingers were ever crushed or anything like that you are screwed. My roommate/and her family have been in the jewlery business for something like 30 years...I don't think they will sell them because of this.

Don't get me wrong I like it I just wanted you to think about it.

The ring looks great, Steve! Another item you can add to the 'accessories' section at ADCO... That's taking the AR lovin' all the way...

I honestly don't give a shit if somebody has their finger on the trigger in a damn picture. Some people are just too anal. Now if they are in front of me, that is different. Anyway, it's a cool ring. I'd like one just for the coolness factor.

What are you talking about? Are you saying it'll break rather than bend or something?

Nice job ... bonus points if you can get "Tactical" inscribed on the next batch of rings.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 10:45:24 AM EST
Whoa! That's pretty cool!

Seriously, let me know if you're going to make anymore of them.

Though I would prefer 4150 MP tested steel to 4140...

Let's say something smashes your finger hard enough to bend the ring. How ya gonna get it off yer finger?

You've never seen a ring cutter, I guess. That's what they're made to do - cut a smashed ring off a finger without chopping the finger off.

ETA HTF are you going to bleed out from a smashed finger?

I've never seen a ring cutter. Learn something new every day! I've seen smashed fingers bleed like a sumbitch. Nail falls off and everything.

If the guys fingers get smashed, they get smashed.... as if that steel is going to be impossible to get off..
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 11:23:33 AM EST
used a ring cutter lots of times in the ER, usually b/c the finger gets injured, then swells, and the ring will affect circulation, so you cut it off when you can't slide it past the swelling. I seriously doubt a ring cutter would work on stainless, it is difficult as it is on gold or sterling. It is however a very cool ring. Perhaps hang it from a chain?

Clamp the thing in a vice the direction that it is longest, and crank up the pressure. It will bend back into roughly circular shape pretty easily. I like my wedding band loose enough that I can take it off, but it is still hard to do sometimes if my knuckles swell.

I have pondered a SS ring for awhile so I looked into more since this thread came up. I first called my local FD they said they have no idea if their ring cutter would cut thru a steel ring. But they did give me some places to find out...I just got off of the phone with this company(http://www.ishor.com/RingTools.htm) and asked him about it. He said their top of the line electric ring cutter would but it would take multiple blades...but the other cutters wouldn't stand a chance. He said steel rings as well as SS body pericings create a huge problem. They have very few things that will cut them. I asked about using bolt cutters and he said they will usually will work but there are major problems with further injuring the finger or body part.

Edit
Again I am not busting balls I really like the ring I just want you to know.

That would suck big time. Try explaining that in Heaven without sounding like a pussy.

"Hey Bill, how did you get up here?"
"Cut my finger, it all went down hill from there..."
