Rotational WorkRing System
The Jayne Redman® Rotational WorkRing System by Swanstrom was designed by Tim Sheriff of Swanstrom Tools USA in collaboration with Jeweler – Educator Jayne Redman. The Complete Set includes the Rotational WorkRing Base with a 4.5” WorkRing, Swanstrom Circle Clamp Adaptor, and Hardware.
To use the WorkRing, slide material under the thumb screws or Phillips head screws, then tighten by hand or with the Phillips head screwdriver provided. Muscle fatigue and soreness are eliminated as the WorkRing securely holds metal or other materials, such as wood and plastic, while you saw, carve, texture, engrave, set stones, or utilize other metalsmithing techniques. The WorkRing rotates in a silicone lined depression allowing for smooth and accurate movement, or can be held stationary by turning the locking screw on the side, or screwing up into the Ring from the underside of the base. The generous 4″ inside diameter is idea for larger projects. The addition of Jayne’s Slider Clamps will allow you to hold material of any size, shape or thickness within the WorkRing. Easily attach or remove the WorkRing Base from a dovetail mounting plate on your bench.
The Swanstrom Circle Clamp Adaptor holds any Circle Clamp that works with The Swanstrom SawPlate System. The Clamp Adaptor is attached to the WorkRing Base by screwing from the back through either of two holes in the Ring depression, and then into the Adaptor. The Swanstrom SawPlate System, Swanstrom SawPlate Circle Clamps, and Gary’s Clamp, are available exclusively through Rio Grande.
The ability to rotate your sawing surface is essential for making blanking (pancake) dies. The Jayne Redman® Rotational WorkRing System is the perfect tool for that task. Use the included spacer and socket head screw to add a Jayne Redman® Dovetail Adaptor for rotation, or remove the dovetail cleats and screw directly into the dovetail adaptor. Attach the new Jayne Redman® Dovetail Mounting Plate to your bench and screw the WorkRing Base directly into it, eliminating the need of a dovetail adaptor for rotation.
Wire and Tube Cutting Jig
The Jayne Redman® Wire and Tube Cutting Jig is the perfect tool for hands free measuring and cutting of a wide range of materials and dimensions. Move the Stop up or down the 6″ Jig body and screw down the knurled knob to set the length of material to be cut. A 2mm setback in the V Channel Insert allows material of a smaller gauge to slide under the Stop and not slip up when the wire is cut. The opposite side of the V Channel does not have a setback and is flush with the face. Slide the Stop off the Jig and rotate it so the knurled knob is on the left. You will now be able to cut small gauge material to less than 2mm in length. For smooth movement of the Stop, push from the center.
Use the saw guide left or right handed by unscrewing the Thumbscrew and inserting it into the Saw Guide from the opposite end. Rotate the Saw Guide with the V Channel on top and screw the Thumbscrew into the Jig, lining up the Stabilizing Plug in the adjacent hole. Remove the Saw Guide entirely to flush cut wire.
For Hands free use screw through the beveled hole in the upper left of the Jig and into your bench top. Or remove one of the screws from the Aluminum surface of your Jayne Redman® Rotational Bench Pin. Use it to screw directly through both the beveled hole in the upper left of the Jig and the Aluminum Surface into the Rotational base.
The Jayne Redman® Bench Accessory System allows you to combine components to create a custom tool organizer. The System consists of an Aluminum Body section and either an Aluminum or Purple Heart Wood Leg Set. The Aluminum Body has a top slot on one side and a bottom slot on the other. Slide the corresponding slotted legs onto the body section to create a single stand or combine more than one body section to create a multiple stand.
Use your Jayne Redman® Bench Accessory System to hold pliers, shears, tweezers or any compatibly shaped tool.
