Streamline the process of creating rings from minted coins with this Jason's Works 5/16" punch & die set, designed to work with the auto punch & die housing. The die is clearly marked with the punch size and self-aligns in the housing. This punch has precision-ground cutting edges, angled so that they cut more cleanly and require less force to make the cut.
Jason Stinchfield, founder and owner of Jason's Works, raised the idea of creating rings out of minted coins to a professional level and pioneered techniques and tooling that make the process fast, effective and repeatable. His work is widely recognized among jewelers/metalsmiths who work with coins to produce memorable pieces of wearable art. He chooses to openly share his own experience and the techniques he has developed, freely exchanging ideas and experiences with colleagues; this has brought rapid growth and vibrancy to this area of jewelry design.
• Protect the surfaces of your punches by using only brass-head mallets to strike them when cutting.
• Always use BurLife® on the cutting edges of your punches to keep them cutting cleanly and efficiently for years to come.
