Description

The CoinRingUSA® Universal Stainless Steel Starter Cone


This universal stainless steel starter cone has a very low profile, allowing for the clearance necessary to use on ring sizing machines with low ram head clearances, especially when the “Stabilizing”/Reduction Dies are used to punch a center hole into a US Quarter, US Half Dollar, Morgan/Peace Dollar, or the American Silver Eagle coins, (see the 2nd listing photo for reference.)


* USE THIS TOOL IF YOU'RE USING THE PLASTIC FOLDING CONES TO PROTECT THE SIDES FROM EVENTUAL WEAR-AND-TEAR*


* THE FOLDING CONES ARE NOW MADE OUT OF HARDENED STAINLESS STEEL... NO MORE GROOVED AND WORN-OUT CONES!

SEE THE NEW LISTING DESCRIPTION FOR THEM BELOW:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/475323877/new-universal-stainless-steel-stabilizer?ref=shop_home_active_2



This new starter cone is designed to begin folding coins with 1/4” center-punched holes, all the way up to 5/8”+ holes.



*** Here are some reviews and testimonials from folks that have purchased and used this tool:


"Fast shipping and well made kit. The starting cone will likely last forever and using it makes the first fold more self-assured, it minimizes wear on the synthetic cones and removes the worry about having to replace them. It's worth noting that it would be great if every company which offered products was like this one and they were constantly looking for ways to improve on and lengthen the life span of their products. As a business model, it would elevate creativity and quality above planned obsolescence. It would obviously be more profitable to make the tools inexpensively and let the ring makers use them until they wear out and then have to replace them. The tools bought here are not only designed to enable the making of professional level rings but to last as long as possible, saving the ring makers from repeat spending."

"Hi Martin. I received and used your starter cone and what a difference having the right tool for the job can make! I purchased your Stabilizer dies and can now use this starter cone because of the new lower profile-fit with my Durston ring stretcher. This will make my folding cones that I purchased from you last so much longer, thanks!" --- Mark T.


"What a great little tool, and the smooth finish to the sides of the starter cone don't make my coins "hang-up" after I've done my first press. I sure wish that these tools were around when I got started making coin rings almost 2 years ago!" --- Heather J.



If you are using plastic folding cones or balls, the first initial fold produces the most wear and tear on your folding tools. By starting the fold with this tool, the plastic folding cones and delrin balls are not subjected to the sharp edge of the center-punched hole in the coin, therefore greatly reducing wear on your folding tools.


This starter cone also works great in conjunction with my 2 “Stabilizing”/Reduction Dies, as you have more stability during the first crucial press due to the coin being completely level and stabilized when folding over any US Quarter, US Half Dollar, Morgan/Peace Dollar, or the American Silver Eagle!


Begin with the starter cone and press it nearly all the way down, until the inner detail of the coin is ALMOST making contact with the sides of the starter cone. Just be sure not to press too far, as you could end up damaging the inner detail of the coin that you are working on. (The stabilizer folding cones are highly recommended for the folding process, due to their shape and improved strength over the Delrin bearing balls.)



*** NOTE ***
Make sure that you bevel (ROUND OUT) the sharp 90° edges of the inside of the center-punched hole in your coin BEFORE using this tool, as doing so will also prolong the life of your folding tools. This is best accomplished with a deburring tool that can be purchased online.

Anneal (heat & then quench) the coin often to keep the metal in a softer state to prolong the wear life of your folding tools.



* It’s highly recommended when folding over coins made of Nickel and other tough alloyed coins that they be initially folded over with this starter cone and then completed with the folding cones.

(Coins, ring sizer machine, and reduction die pictured are not included and are used for reference only).


Thanks, and here's to your coin ring-making success!
