To watch our product video on how to use this tool click here.
Making your own jump rings is a pretty simple technique when you use this jump ring maker. This tutorial outlines the “how to’s” and addresses the important tips and techniques for the successful use of this tool.
It is VERY important that you wear safety glasses when using this tool. Be careful of the sharp blade on this tool. The blade on this tool is sharp and very thin, and can break after repeated use. The blade will also break if dropped on the ground. Using safety glasses is smart and safe.
Making jump rings requires two tools, the Jump Ring Maker and Foredom Flex Shaft. The Flex Shaft also requires the Flex Shaft Hanger (sold separately).
We recommend using copper wire to make a few sets of practice jump rings, then graduating to more expensive wire like sterling silver and gold-filled.
This tool does take practice. Focus all of your attention on your project when working with this tool.
