With the Jason's Works Deluxe Master tool and accessory set, you instantly stock your bench with the complete line of tools you need to create beautiful rings from a wide variety of minted coins. This master set comprises four individual Jason's Works sets that together deliver everything you need to create coin rings quickly and confidently from start to finish using efficient innovative tools. The deluxe master set includes:
• Jason's Works Auto-Punch Coin Ring Housing, Punch & Die Set
This set includes a finely machined auto-punch & die housing made from hardened steel with corrosion-resistant cadmium plating, and nine punch & die pairs (used to cut a center hole in the coin, starting the process for forming a ring). Keep the housing and die sets neatly organized with the included accessory organizer made from dense, durable red oak.
• Jason's Works Coin Ring Reduction Die Set, 11 piece
This stainless steel reduction die set includes 11 dies with with two slope degrees, 17° and 25°. Used in partnership with stabilizing cones in series , reduction dies help you start the process of folding your coin outward, with its punched center hole, to form and shape the ring band; they can also be used to reduce the ring band. These dies can be used in conjunction with the die plate that comes with the Durston Ring stretcher (available separately). Keep the reduction dies neatly organized with the included accessory organizer made from dense, durable red oak.
• Jason's Works Swedish Wrap Coin Ring Master Set
Designed for the Swedish Wrap coin ring technique, this kit enables you to make smaller rings from larger coins. It is ideal for creating the mid-knuckle rings that continue to grow in popularity, and to make rings as small as size 4.75 (U.S.) from dollar and half-dollar coins. Keep the accessories neatly organized with the included accessory organizer made from dense, durable red oak.
• Jason's Works Stabilizer Folding Cone and Stretcher Set
This folding cone and stretcher set includes two stainless steel folding cones and five tough, non-marring linen phenolic (a thermoset resin material) folding cones used in partnership with coin ring reduction dies (sold seperately) to fold and shape a cut coin into a ring. A spacer (made of the same resin material) is used to extend the reach of the cones into the reduction die as the center hole widens and folds outward in this process. One highly polished stainless steel anvil designed to be used with the coin ring reduction dies, helping ensure that the ring achieves and maintains a perfectly parallel band width throughout the shaping and forming process. A 1/4" stretching mandrel ideal for starting the folding process on smaller coins (such as pennies or dimes). And a splined Mega-Stretcher sleeve designed to achieve larger ring sizes on your stretching mandrel. Keep all of your stretching and folding accessories neatly organized with the included accessory organizer made from dense, durable red oak.
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.
