    Exclamation Tapering!

    Hey everyone, please can anyone help with pictures or a demo video on making a simple tapered engagement ring? I have been recommended to forge however I wondered if anyone had a demo video they would recommend. I feel I shouldn’t be struggling with something like this I’m just struggling to get the ring shank tapered evenly on both sides. Thanks!

    If this is the sort of thing you are trying to make, then you could take out a short subscription here https://www.atthebench.com/category/all-films/

    However if you also have to acquire the tools, you could buy one ready made at a fraction of the price, for instance on Etsy.

    I would suggest you go for 9ct white gold, or upwards. Dennis.

    Thanks this is helpful. Not quite the design I’m thinking of but helpful advice all the same! Thank you for taking the time to reply.

    From memory, Jinks McGrath's rings book forges the shoulders to a knife edge if that's what you mean.
