Comfort Ring Core.

Comments On Apr 16, 2022:These worked very well. Glued in very well and were smooth and comfortable. These were 10 mm wide and found that when using this wide of a comfort core that you may want to make the core a half to full size larger than what the end user normally wears as the width makes the more difficult to wear. My next order I will try the 3mm and 5 mm and see how they work. I am new to ring turning so this was a learning experience. I was very happy with the results.

Nice but thick

Comments On Apr 16, 2019:Overall, these are very nice rings. My only complaint is that they are a bit too thick. For small hands, the metal is already the final thickness to wear comfortably. Once the wood and inlays are added, it's just too much.

Comments On Mar 27, 2019:I have relative that tells me he's turning rings. Totally new to me...I like the idea. I buy a few mandrels, blanks, a core assortment. First ring or two is a disaster (also known as a learning experience). I wanted to give everything away. However nothing goes right the first time as it's not suppose to.
The next ring is absolutely beautiful... each ring after is nicer than the last. I made about 8 rings so far and really enjoy the process and result. I bought all of the supplies from CSUSA and like the quality of their materials. CSUSA Ring cores are excellent. As for me the wider the better. Frank aka WriteOn (IAP)

Alternate method, without using double faced tape

Comments On Oct 06, 2018:Had trouble with tape holding, so placed sq blank directly in lathe chuck with a thin waste piece behind it. After drilling hole, enlarged it to fit ring core, then turned blank down to thickness of the ring core. Glued ring core into blank then, after mounting with ring bushings, turned square blank to final size before finishing.

Used a bunch of these. They are great.

Comments On Sep 09, 2018:I really like these cores as they showcase the wood very well. Im not fond of cores with the side band, cause your not selling a wooden ring just to look at stainless borders.

Top notch quality that brings beauty to the ring

Comments On May 21, 2018:I have used over 100 of these ring cores in the making of my rings in the last couple of months. I have had the opportunity to order other types of ring cores and choose not to because of the compliments I receive from the people that I make these rings for. The quality of the core and the fit that it has is just unmatched. I is very easy to work with and brings with it beauty to the finished ring. I have many people ask for just the stainless steel core to wear it bare.

Very nice - but...

Comments On Feb 01, 2018:The cores are nice SS, and very comfortable to wear. However they are a bit thick. The Core itself is about the right thickness for a ring. The finished ring feels very thick between your fingers even after turning the wood down to almost nothing. Would be nice if the core was 0.5mm thinner. They measure 1.8mm now. My wedding band is 2.1, that's only 0.3mm thicker. The cores could easily be 1.2 or 1.3mm leaving a bit more room for material and creativity.
Very nice cores otherwise, will continue using them and may turn then thinner on a metal lathe before inserting them into the material.

Smooth and Comfortable

Comments On Jan 10, 2018:These ring cores are super smooth and comfortable. After watching Craft Supply's youtube video on how to make wooden rings these were a must have. I've already made several for friends. They have a good quality weight to them.

Very nice

Comments On Jan 06, 2018:I have been turning pens for many years and was excited to find this in the catalog. The beginning to any type of new project can be trying and discouraging, but since I was prepared I didn't mind that I blew through the first 4 blanks. I wear a size 15 ring so it didn't do me any good to have other bigger sizes in case I made the ring too big. I will suggest that if you are close to the ring fitting in the blank, TAKE YOUR TIME! I was surprised how little of the material would make it too big. Other than that, the ring feels good and my wife and kids all want one. I have a feeling that my wife's and my ring will probably sit in the jewelry case for a long time. Maybe I should sell them and buy a new car, and then wear the wood or acrylic rings. That's an idea!! Thanks for the great product.

Easy once you learn

Comments On Dec 16, 2017:The first one took several tries after tweaking the instructions to make it easier for me, it takes a lot less time and I am way more successful!

Product information

Comments On Nov 14, 2017:My first review referred to a lack of product information about mandrel size. I quickly received a call from customer service that answered all of my questions. I have now watched the excellent videos and I am looking forward to turning my first ring

Positive Comments

Comments On Oct 18, 2017:I have made two of these so far and the comments received have been very positive. The stainless steel core is well made and smooth. Instructions are clear, but I would recommend doing a dry run of the process. Once you have it down, it takes about 15 minutes to make one. There isn't much wood when it is finished so be sure your tools are sharp and take fine cuts.

Great little rings

Comments On Sep 13, 2017:These are a great idea, well made, and have that look of durability and quality you'd want from jewellery. Only thing keeping this review at 4 stars is the sizing instructions. Go one size smaller, not larger, or the ring slides right off your finger.

Making my own wedding band

Comments On Jul 19, 2017:I wasn't really looking forward to buying a $300 wedding band that meant nothing to me and I wanted something more durable than an all wooden ring. So I gave this kit a shot and within 2 hours I had a nice buckeye burl that I can enjoy wearing.
