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 WorkRing Set with Ring includes the Rotational WorkRing Base with a 4.5” WorkRing, 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 WorkRing System is compatible with any dovetail method of attachment such as GRS®.
The ability to rotate your sawing surface is essential for making blanking (pancake) dies. The Jayne Redman® Rotational WorkRing Set with Ring 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.
