There are sources for blades that are a fair bit cheaper, and yes, they do come in different gauges. I'm back at my main pc until later next week, but will find you a link or two as soon as I am.

Thank you George. I think it is misalignment. It is difficult because I cut several hundred rings and then it breaks. I always apply lubricant to the coils before cutting. On the fineness of the blade issue I am cutting copper or silver coils and using Pepe blades. Are there different thickness of blade?

Are the blades actually breaking or just losing teeth? If it's the former, it's likely to be some sort of misalignment that's causing the blade to spin slightly off-true, if the latter, then lubrication could be the problem, or using too fine a blade, or even just too hard a metal.

I have a couple of ring makers, but always seem to end up reverting to hand sawing, despite the ridiculous number of rings I cut.

I know it isnít lampwork and that there are speacalist sites on FB but I thought I would ask here first. I make a lot of chainmaille stuff and teach a bit so decided to buy the ring maker. It is a lovely bit of kit but I break the blades and I donít know why. They are pricey, nearly£15 each.
Any tips or advice welcome

I do! Mineís happy on two 5l, I usually only put one one on if Iím just using the top.
So a 10l one should be fine.

I know itís not very busy on FH atm but I thought Iíd try anyway...
Is there anyone here who uses a nortel midrange plus? Would it run off one 10l oxygen concentrator?
Thanks (hopefully) in advance

I'm sure you've seen these already, but I completely forgot to announce that there a number of new frits from Val Cox that have come out in the last few months. I have them at, so why not come over and have a look.
