Description

At CoinRingUSA®, we uphold the highest standards by sourcing only the best quality material and highly skilled craftsmanship when making our coin ring tools.

That’s why all CoinRingUSA® brand of Swedish Wrap Method extrusion dies are precision-smoothed, buffed, and then hand-polished to a superior finish on the inside die walls using a multi-step process that results in the most consistent and effective reduction and extrusion of any coin to make into a coin ring on the market.


***NOTE *** This Set does NOT come with the Set of Brass Pushrods.

Now you can pick up the Set of 3 "Swedish Wrap” Extrusion Dies (made of hardened and wear-resistant stainless steel) as a stand-alone purchase.(See the first listing photo for reference.)

This option is great if you already have Swedish Wrap extrusion dies and want to have additional options; or if you already have brass, bronze, aluminum, or nylon plastic push rods (plungers) and you just need to purchase the Swedish Wrap dies.


* NOTE* --- Make sure that your largest existing pushrod has an outer diameter of between 1.4" - 1.3" inches, and that your smallest existing pushrod has an outer diameter of between 0.800" - 0.750" (3.4" inch), in order to get the best use out of these standalone Swedish Wrap dies.


You can always purchase my FULL set of Swedish Wrap dies that includes the 4 double-sided BRASS pushrods (for a total of EIGHT different diameter sizes) by going to the listing link below:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/470134369/swedish-wrap-die-set-for-all-half-dollar?ref=shop_home_active_3



IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO NOT USE STEEL SOCKETS TO COMPRESS YOUR COIN RINGS THROUGH THESE DIES; AS YOU COULD END UP DAMAGING THE INNER DIE WALLS. BRASS PUSH RODS (PLUNGERS) ARE BEST RECOMMENDED FOR USE.

* "Hey Martin, just a quick note of thanks for your latest tool offering... these Swedish Wrap Dies are awesome! I had a chance to try some of the Swede Dies that a friend of mine bought that are 2" tall, and what I didn't like about them was the fact that I couldn't always see my coin while I was forming it; but your die set solves that problem and then some. Thanks again buddy, can't wait to see what you come up with next!" --- Terry H. of Sunset City Coin Rings



After having prototyped several combinations of die heights and inner wall pitches, (tapers); I went with this particular Swedish Wrap combination because this really achieves the "sweet spot" between both die height of 1.5" inches, and an inner wall pitch of 7° tapers: not too short, not too tall... not too steep; and not too shallow. This particular combination produces some of the best and most consistent results, while allowing you to be in better control of your work by being able to see your coin ring easier while you're working.



* A major benefit that this exact combination of die height and inner wall pitch offers is having the option of "bottoming out" the coin ring in the first die and then switching to the next smaller-sized Swedish Wrap die without having to push the coin ring all the way out through the bottom of the initial die. You can, however, extrude (push) the coin ring through the bottom of any of the three dies if you choose to without damaging the coin ring’s detail; as each die has been machined with a unique beveled relief at the bottom that allows for full extrusion of your coin ring without any damage to its' outer detail.


* Another major benefit to this Swedish Wrap Set is that you only have to use ONE brass push rod working through the die to bottom out your coin ring in any of the 3 dies in the set. This eliminates the extra step as well as the potential for slipping and damage when stacking multiple push rod plungers on top of each other because of their shorter height.



This Swedish Wrap 3-die Set offers a total of 4.5" inches of workable inner die wall to compress coin rings; and it gives you the full range for extruding (pushing) coin rings all the way from nearly 1.450" in outer diameter, down to just .765" in outer diameter!



*** SWEDISH WRAP METHOD STEPS: ***

After folding your coin ring (using the regular Universal Reduction dies), find the correct diameter brass push rod that covers the majority of the reeded-end of your coin. After annealing and wrapping the coin in Teflon thread tape, you place it into the appropriate sized die, with the reeded edge facing UP. Next you place the appropriate-sized urethane disc onto the top of the reed side of the coin, and place your push rod on top of that. The urethane creates a protective barrier between the two metal surfaces and helps to preserve the detail of the reeds as well as the brass push rod end.


Begin to compress (extrude) the coin down the die, pulling the coin out after every press to re-anneal and re-wrap the coin, and when necessary; flipping the brass push rod over to the next smaller diameter size to continue compressing the coin down the die.


Starting with the LARGE (marked 1.4”) and followed by the MEDIUM (marked 1.2”) Swedish Wrap dies, I have been able to reduce American Silver Eagles, Morgan Dollars, and even Challenge Coins down to a size 9 while only BOTTOMING the coins out in the MEDIUM (1.2”) die.


The “SMALL” Swedish Wrap die in the Set (marked 1.1”) can be used to compress the Half Dollar-sized coins down to roughly a size 3.5 with full extrusion, and can also be used to further compress the larger-sized coins such as the American Silver Eagle, Morgan/Peace Dollars, Challenge Coins, etc., down to a tiny size 1 when fully extruding out through the bottom of this die!

You can then “tuck in” the edges of the coin ring using either the Universal 17°, 20°, or the 25° “Fat Tire” Folding and Reduction Dies also found at my Shop Page for a rounded-look while bringing those larger coin rings down to a size 00 – 000.


* The SMALL Swedish Wrap die (marked 1.1"), can even be used to compress US Quarter-sized coins down to a size 4 when fully extruded out the bottom of the die. Then using the smaller 0.7" x 0.8" Universal reduction die (that I also offer at my Shop Page), you can further reduce US Quarter-sized coins (down below a size 4) to your final desired size!



Depending on the size and look that you’re going for, you can now either:

1.) Expand the thinner cut-side of your coin ring to match the outer diameter of your coin ring on your ring sizer machine for a “straight-walled” look;

2.) After Step 1, you can then further reduce the ring size by “tucking in” the edges of the coin using either the Universal 17°, 20°, or the 25° “Fat Tire” Folding and Reduction Dies (also found at my Shop Page) for a rounded "Fat Tire" look; or,

3.) You can continue to compress the coin ring further down the Swedish Wrap dies to achieve an overall smaller size.



FOR THE “STRAIGHT-WALLED” COIN RING LOOK:
To achieve the “straight-walled” look, I like to compress the coin ring using the Swedish Wrap dies and then expanding the coin ring on the ring stretcher until I get to 3 sizes ABOVE my final desired target ring size. Then, using my deburring tool, I will remove the appropriate amount of material from the INSIDE of the thicker reeded part of the coin to achieve more of a "comfort fit". Next, using the 17-degree dies, I will reduce the sides of my coin ring until I have reached my final target size.



FOR THE ROUNDED “FAT-TIRE” COIN RING LOOK:
For those wanting a rounded-look to their coin rings, you first compress the coin using the Swedish Wrap dies and then expand it on your ring stretcher to 3 sizes ABOVE your final target size. You would then use the appropriate-sized Universal 17° die to first reduce the coin ring to get it close to your final target size, and then finish the coin ring off by using the 25° die to “tuck in” the sides more to achieve a more rounded “Fat Tire” look.



PLEASE KEEP THE FOLLOWING IN MIND WHEN USING THIS TECHNIQUE:

1.) TAKE YOUR TIME, especially when first starting out. I recommend Swedish Wrapping' a few rings out of clad coins to get familiar with the process.


2.) Make sure that you anneal your coin OFTEN, ideally after every press or two. Doing so will make the process easier.


3.) Use a TON of Teflon pipe thread tape, and make sure to re-wrap your coin ring after each press and anneal. A 10-pack of the Teflon Tape can be purchased at HarborFreight.com for 2 dollars.


4.) Make sure that you firmly press the teflon-wrapped coin ring to make sure that it is seated evenly into the die before compressing with the brass push rod plungers.


5.) Press SLOWLY and make sure that the brass push rod covers the majority of the reeded portion of the coin. If it doesn’t cover enough of the reeds, the push rod could slip as you’re compressing it, possibly ruining the push rod and the coin rings' reeded edge. You can fix this issue by placing the coin ring, (reeded side DOWN) into either your Universal 17°, 20°, or 25° reduction die to slightly shrink the outer diameter of the reeded side until the brass push rod better covers the reeds.


6.) Make sure that you don't over press the brass push rods down the Swedish Wrap dies, especially when using a hydraulic press or an arbor press. At first, it's best to place the brass push rods into the dies WITHOUT the coin ring underneath. That way, you can get an idea of where the push rod "bottoms out" before actually compressing your coin. After some practice, you’ll be able to feel the resistance of when each push rod bottoms out in the dies.



The tiny-sized coin rings can be incorporated into charms on necklaces, bracelet charms, or even earrings. There are a lot of possibilities!
