The Jump Ring Maker, made by Pepe Tools, works in conjunction with a flex shaft. This is Pepe's newest 2013 model. You must have a flex shaft to cut your coils/rings.
The Jump Ring Maker comes with 20 rods
which range in size from 2.5mm to 12mm in 1/2mm increments. Wire is coiled on the rods and placed in the coil holder and cut using the hand held attachment for the Foredom flex shaft. Comes with
one 1 1/4" blade
that cuts up to 16 gauge wire.
Make sure that you are consistent with your cutting direction and blade orientation. You want to make sure that the teeth of the blade are rotating TOWARDS the coil to be cut.
If you are interesting in mounting to your table, you will need three screws to do so.
Check out this video from PEPE on how to use their tool.
A Foredom Flex Shaft (sold separately)
is used with the cutter cover to cut the jump rings. **Please note: We will not ship the flex shaft tools outside of USA/CAN.
When using the Jump Ring Maker, be sure to use proper safety precautions. Always wear eye protection
and turn off the power to your flex shaft when changing the blade or adjusting the hand held cutter cover.
