Do you own a jump ring cutter of some kind? Do you know how to use it safely? Are you catching your precious metal lemel (the technical name for metal sawdust!) when you cut rings? Come learn how to cut all the way to the very end of a coil (no wasted rings), how to cut oval rings (needed for Cuban Chain), and how to make a Lemel Trap to save you $$$.

We’ll talk about the PotterUSA “Coil Cutter”, the PEPE “Jump Ring Maker”, the Durston “Jump Ring Former”, and how they all compare to the original Grossman “Jump Ringer” (sadly, no longer manufactured, but shown in the images for this class), so you can make an informed decision when purchasing.

You don’t need to buy anything new to benefit from this class. Come and ask all your questions before investing in a wonderful time saving new tool
