This has saved my fingers! I received a terrible cut recently when cutting 14 gauge copper jump rings. And then I remembered something I saw in Bob Dancik's book. I asked my brother-in-law to make me one. I knew I might injure the other 9 fingers if I attempted to make this jig myself. I told John I thought others might be interested in this contraption, so he agreed to make a few extras.

With this jig, you can cut jump rings and it will be virtually impossible to cut yourself. The pictures to the right show the different steps. You form a spiral of wire around an object like a pencil, knitting needle ... whatever. Undo the blade of your jewelers saw and slip the blade THROUGH the middle of the spiral. Place the spiral in the "V" notch of the jig. Use the slot in the plexiglass to guide your blade. Press the spiral of wire firmly down in the "V" notch while you cut your jump rings by sawing back and forth. And don't forget to lubricate your blade with burr life or candle wax, etc.

That's it. Perfectly cut jump rings every time and with no danger of hurting yourself. The Jump Ring Cutter Jig is designed to fit perfectly in a vise.

Here's a link to a little video I did on how to use the jump ring jig. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8g0QkrgusgI&feature=plcp
