Introduction: Hand-Forged Ring With CA Glue Inlay

关于:只是另一个修补工

Hello everyone,

Today I'd like to show you how I made this hand forged ring out of the bare minimum tools, most of which you probably already have at home if you're a tinkerer like me.

The inlay is done using cyanoacrylate/CA glue, normally for inlays you would use UV curing resins but these are a LOT more expensive and can sometimes be hard to come by.

到目前为止,我使用CA胶的性能一直保持得非常好,而且个人认为与UV固化树脂相比没有什么区别。

Let's get started...

Supplies

步骤1:您需要的是:

To make this Instructable you will need the following:

- 2mm Bronze rod

亚马逊-棒

This can be found at your local hardware store in the welding/brazing section. I recommend using bronze when learning and then moving on to precious metals later.

- Cyanoacrylate glue with activator

亚马逊-CA胶

If you have UV curing resin available you can also use that instead.

- Semi-precious stones of your choice

在这个指导下,我决定和绿松石一起去,因为我认为颜色很好地赞美了青铜。

-银焊料

Amazon - Silver solder

- a Butane/propane blow torch

- Some masking/painters tape

- a Hammer

-铁砧**(15美元,我强烈建议买这样的东西)

亚马逊-砧

Any piece of heavy metal with a smooth surface can be used, before I made myself this small jewellers anvil I used an old hammer head mounted in a vice and it worked great.

-砂纸220至1500砂粒

- Metal polishing compound

Amazon - Compound blocks

-皮革安全手套

Optional:

- Included in this Instructable is a 3D printable lathe chuck that works great if you plan on making a lot of these.

-沉闷

-砂桶

-橡胶磨料

-毛毡抛光垫

Step 2: Start Forging:

安全第一!

锻造金属时,务必戴上皮手套,即使站立一段时间,也会造成严重烧伤。总是把金属拿起来,好像热的。

Now we will need to start shaping our bronze rod.

For this ring you need a rod that is two times the circumference of your ring, mine was a 13cm long rod but I leave about 10cm extra to make handling it easier

你可以用一根绳子测量你的戒指大小。取下绳子,把它绕在手指的底部,标记字符串首先与钢笔重叠的位置。然后,用尺子把它排成一行,然后取下它的长度

Now we need to anneal the bronze rod, with the butane/propane torch you need to heat up your bronze rod until it gets to a cherry red color.

当杆达到温度时,可以将杆放在砧上,开始锤击到一侧,在横穿杆时尽量保持锤头平直。

While hammering you will feel the bronze getting harder, once you feel this happening you will need to reheat the rod as above.

不时地翻转杆将有助于保持它的直。

Keep repeating the above until you've reduced the thickness of the rod from 2mm to just below 1mm.

现在你可以重新加热杆,然后放在它的一侧,轻轻地锤下一侧,最后用一个大约3毫米宽,1mm厚的均匀棒结束。

你现在可以继续,删除多余的杆,我use my trusty vintage Knipex cutter.

步骤3:钎焊:

Before we start brazing the parts together we need to create the gap for the inlay.

要完成这一点,先将刚锻造的铜棒切成两半,现在将其放在砧上,如图所示,然后开始轻轻敲击一侧,这将导致杆向上卷曲。

对两个酒吧都这样。

Now we are ready to braze the two bars together.

To braze pieces like this I like to use the metal table of my press drill and some old salvaged magnets to hold the pieces in place.

If you have bare silver solder with separate flux you can now apply some flux to the end where the two bars meet, if like me you have flux covered silver solder rods I like to heat up the piece that needs to get brazed and then rub the fluxed rod over it to melt some onto the piece.

现在用你的吹炬加热接头,使其呈亮红色,并将一些焊料流到接头中,在另一侧重复。

不要担心它是否不完美,因为我们将在下一步重新出现。

Step 4: Shaping:

现在,在两个金属棒钎焊后,金属应该进行退火,并且容易弯曲。

Start bending the piece around so that the ends meet, if you find it difficult to bend you can wrap some pliers with painters tape and use them to bend the piece.

将其弯曲成D,以便需要钎焊的零件彼此平直。

Now like in the previous step apply some flux and heat up the joint to make the solder flow into it, if there is not enough silver solder to fill up the joint add some more just be careful not to let it run down the side.

And now you should have something that's starting to resemble a ring!

Step 5: Roughing It!

We need to now make our ring round, if you have a ball point hammer you can place the ring over the sphere and gently hammer it until it is round. Otherwise you will need to put it on your anvil and gently hammer the high points until you get it as round as possible.

If you have a Dremel it makes this next part a little easier.

是时候清理一些多余的焊料了,我用了滚筒磨砂钻头,但你也可以用一张120-220砂纸卷起来,把内外砂得又好又滑。

接下来我用一些橡胶混合钻头或400砂纸来清理嵌体将进入的缝隙。

After rough sanding is done we can move onto the inlay.

Step 6: The Inlay:

因为镶嵌物我们需要把半宝石分解成小块。

To do this I used the cap from an old spray can (I always keep these to mix things like resin in instead of using new cups) and add some beads, for this ring I only used about 3 beads.

Then using a nice and heavy hammer I started to break them down, how much depends on how you want your inlay to look. For this one I left quite big chunks as I wanted it to be transparent with chunks of turquoise in between. But if you want a very uniform inlay you can continue hammering them until you are left with a fine powder.

现在,你有你的好石头的inlay we can use some masking/painters tape to create a barrier on the inside of the ring for the CA glue to pool in while we insert the stones.

粘面向外贴一层胶带在你的戒指里面,胶带上的粘合剂将产生释放,使它容易撕掉当你的CA胶水硬化。

Take your bottle of CA glue and squeeze some into the cavity of the ring, you want to make sure you've gotten it into all of the corners.

现在拿一些你的石粉,把它推入胶水里,在上面我们将涂上另一层胶水,确保所有的石头都被覆盖。

如果你看到胶水里有气泡,你可以用针头把它们戳破。

现在的空腔满了,你可以拿着一罐CA激活剂,喷一点在上面,我把罐子离环30厘米远,只需快速喷洒一下。如果你一次喷洒太多,它会设置得太快,导致它收缩和膨胀。

The glue should harden basically instantly but just to be sure the inside is also cured I let it stand for about 30 minutes before peeling off the tape.

现在它已经全部固化,你的磁带已经关闭,你可以拿120-220砂纸,或者如果你有一个磨砂鼓钻头,并水平出镶嵌物,使它与环的其余部分齐平。


-> It's very important to wear a mask when you are sanding CA glue! <-


Because I used quite chunky stones in my inlay it took a lot of sanding to knock it down even with an 80 grit sanding drum so I highly recommend using a finer stone powder.

步骤7:可选:3D打印卡盘

If you would like to make more crafts like this in the future I highly recommend you print out one of these lathe chucks bymdkendallon thingiverse.

我包括了我修改的文件,以适应一个5mm轴,使它易于推上一个马达。

这将使打磨和抛光环成为微风。

Step 8: Finishing:

Now that our inlay is done we can start with the final polish.

我先卷起一张220砂纸,把里面和外面的所有瑕疵打磨掉,然后移动到400粒,以去除220留下的划痕。

Next I placed a piece of 220 grit on a glass pane, rub your ring in circular motions to even out the two sides. Repeat with 400 grit.

现在用1500粒的砂粒把整个工件翻一遍,以去除以前的砂粒留下的痕迹。

After you're done with the 1500 grit you should be left with a satin defect free ring ready to be polished.

Now with some felt pads and metal polishing compound start polishing your ring from the coarsest compound to the finest.

When your done with the compound blocks smear some liquid polish onto a soft clean rag and start rubbing away.

你应该留着一个闪亮的镜子饰面。

Step 9: You're Done!

在那里你有了你的全新手工锻造戒指,加上CA胶水镶嵌。

The last picture is of a ring I made previously with some of the bronze filings mixed in with the turquoise.

Please share your own creations with me.

Happy making!
