Designed by Jason's Works to streamline the process of creating rings from minted coins, the self-centering housing in this set ensures error-free punching of your coins. This set includes the housing, nine punch & die pairs, and a durable red oak accessory organizer. The housing is made from hardened steel with corrosion-resistant cadmium plating. A tapered interior design of the auto housing provides a precise center punch without a spacer; the included punches and dies are made to specifically work with this housing.
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 jeweler/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.
• Anneal often as you shape your coin using reduction dies; this protects the metal integrity and design details of the coin.
• 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.
