The Jump Ring Maker, made by Pepe Tools, works in conjunction with the Foredom flex shaft. This is Pepe's newest 2013 model. You must have a flex shaft to cut your coils/rings.
The Jump Ring Maker comes with 20 rods which range in size from 2.5mm to 12mm in 1/2mm increments. Wire is coiled on the rods and placed in the coil holder and cut using the hand held attachment for the Foredom flex shaft. Comes with one 1 1/4" blade that cuts up to 16 gauge wire.
Make sure that you are consistent with your cutting direction and blade orientation. You want to make sure that the teeth of the blade are rotating TOWARDS the coil to be cut.
If you are interested in mounting to your table, you will need three screws to do so.
Check out this video from PEPE on how to use their tool.
The blade cover pairs specifically with the Foredom Flex Shaft (sold separately)
to cut the jump rings. **Please note: We will not ship the flex shaft tools outside of USA/CAN.
When using the Jump Ring Maker, be sure to use proper safety precautions. Always wear eye protection
and turn off the power to your flex shaft when changing the blade or adjusting the hand held cutter cover.

I love love love this pepe tool! Perfectly cut jump rings! So easy. Thank you Beaducation! Product arrived on time & boxed professionally.
A good tool once you get the hang of it. Could be very dangerous so take care when using it. The smallest mandrel was bent on arrival I straightened it out the best I could. Seems to be ok.
