In this video by Rio Grande, learn how to use blanking dies on a hydraulic press to quickly and easily create bracelet and ring blanks. Bonny Doon toolmakers G. Phil Poirier and Brooke Barlow demonstrate using the Bonny Doon Classic 20-Ton Electric Press with bracelet and ring blanking dies. Watch as they turn their bracelet blank into a finished cuff using the hydraulic press, and then hand-form their ring blank into a finished ring using the Bonny Doon split die ring forming kit, adapter and vertical vise.
