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 with Dovetail Adaptor includes the Rotational WorkRing Base with a
4.5” WorkRing, Swanstrom Circle Clamp Adaptor, Jayne Redman® Dovetail Adaptor,
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 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 Jayne Redman® Dovetail Adaptor for rotation of the WorkRing Base.
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.
