I just started using that style and really like it. The bushing style limit your ability to get in on the sides and with this style it is not a problem. Got mine from ringsupplies.com because they had a better size range selection.

I don't like the one i have, but mine wasn't purchased from Craft Supply. the steps are too short and it doesn't fit the ring well. I have to really drive the screw in or wrap the mandrel with tape.

I would like to think CS would make their mandrel fit their rings. ;)

Those look much better than the one I purchased, can't remember where I got it, but it's not a good one.

I'd buy these from CS...They are JDG Pro Ring Mandrel Full Size. Would buy both sizes.
4-9.... 9-14.

Next question please... Ring Cores.... Is there a typical common range. Do you buy 1 or 2 each of each size for now.

I'm presently putting an order together. Will take all and any advice, Thanks.

I purchased all three from ringsupplies a few years ago as I couldn't find them anywhere else. What I received looked nothing like what was pictured and the steps are pretty small, so buyer beware.

I mage my own with a cutting profile on the tip and side and love how it works and give me good control on the cut when sneaking up on the ring size.

Default Rings are fun and fairly straight forward

I use the stainless steel cores from Craft USA and have made and sold a good number of rings. I have yet to channel and insert wire or inlay, but will be in the near future. All so far have been either wood or acrylic. Here are just some.

For wood, I currently use CA, although I am thinking of trying UV curing clear resin in the future to see how they look side by side.

Hope this helps.
