Hi All -
i’ve been making a few ring shaped objects (bracelet, rings) on my lathe. To do the rings, I made a tapered mandrel and have been been just pressure fitting the rings on to shape them. I’ve tried experimenting with CA finish, with varying success, but I have a fairly consistent problem – gluing the rings to the mandrel!
Does anyone have any suggestions for another way of holding the ring on the lathe while I finish it? All ideas are welcome… So far, I’ve been thinking of a 3-prong wire grip that would hold the ring from the inside.
Thanks so much
