This past weekend I spend out camping with my wonderful family and I thought I could spend it just sitting around chatting like everyone else but no that was not to be, it drove me crazy not to have a project so I went home and got my wire and jump ring winder.
Jump Ring Winder
After a short time I ran out of wire and ended up with a good assortment of wire springs that were ready to cut but I had forgot my cutting lube so I had to stop there.

In the studio today I got everything out and started cutting up the jump rings just to break blade after blade. I think the new blades I got are to thin and I am going to have to order some with a bit more beef. If you use a lot of jump rings this system is well worth looking into. I end up cutting jump rings of this multitude about once a year, that way I have what I need on hand when putting my pieces together.
