Tool Time @ MAGG

Updated: Jul 4, 2023

In these Tool Time @ MAGG videos, Piper Epsey & Dallas Vinson explain how to use four essential metalsmithing tools. Video & editing provided by Jessica Lopez!

Jump Ring Maker

A jump ring maker is a tool that helps create uniform and consistent jump rings for jewelry making. It typically consists of a mandrel and a handle for wrapping wire, which is then cut to make individual rings.

Superior Ring Bender

A Superior Ring Bender is a tool used for bending and shaping metal into rings for jewelry making. It consists of a series of rollers that can be adjusted to bend metal into different shapes and sizes, allowing for precise and consistent results.

Center Finder

A center finder is a tool that helps locate the center point of a round or square metal blank for piercing or drilling. It consists of two arms that can be adjusted to fit the metal blank, and a center punch is used to mark the center point accurately for subsequent drilling or piercing.

Smith Little Torch

The Smith Little Torch is a small, versatile welding and brazing torch used for jewelry making and other small-scale metalworking. It produces a hot and precise flame that can be adjusted to accommodate different metals and soldering techniques
