Thanks.... was going to ask if the cores can be found in an assortment bundle.

The big question...I'm I cheating or reducing the fun/craft of ring turning by using a Taig lathe. A boring bar and cross slide carriage are perfect for this application.

Thanks... Was just checking....don't want to get bawled out by the purists
Who else sells cores and blanks. CSUSA has escalating shipping charges. I tend to avoid ordering if the costs go up with every dollar spent.

JD Gauthier makes cores that are sold at ringsupplies.com. I donít know if he does private sales. You can also get them at the bangleguy WildWood Design - Supplies for the Woodturing Jeweler

I've been doing rings for a while, I made my own mold for casting blanks so I am not wasting so much resin. Those silicon round Ice cube trays work well also, or sometimes I will cast a round rod and just slice off what I need.

I would recommend the ring turning chuck from Craft supply, and the expanding ones.
I like the ring cores from CS but I feel they are too thick. I use my mill to turn them down a bit so I can have more material on the ring without it getting too fat.

Here are a couple videos I did, I was one of the first to get the new ring chuck from CS so I reviewed it here. they had an issue with some of the chucks to start out and they promptly replaced it as you will see in the second video.

You can make rings without inserts also, just be aware they are more "breakable".

Here are just a few I have done.

This one has a band with glow stones



This one I made with spectraply

Same here. Seeing ring work like that is exciting.

Can’t find a mandrel. All seem to be back ordered. Anyway .... bushings or expandable collets. Or both. Do you use a special chisel after rounding out the blank.

This part 1 A Universal Expanding Ring Mandrel for the Lathe
part 2 A Universal Expanding Ring Mandrel Part Two
Can be made using HDPE instead of aluminum. The key is the expanding part on part of the build tutorial.
