I guess defacing currency isn't illegal in some countries, in my country a more than dozen ppl had been locked up for posting a youtube videos documenting how they make these harmless rings

If you use blue tape, as in painting tape, over the coin, it makes it easier to mark Especially if the coin has any finger or other oil on it When you get to the annealing stage, the tape will go away, just burn it off I find it easier to anneal the total coin first Then the blue tape, mark the center, punch it and it will make the punching easier and more accurate

Can you do the same thing to quarter rings

Please tell me you don't work for Boeing Making a circle from a dozen lines the size of the punch is NOT finding the center, then "eyeballing it" is still NOT finding the center
Comment from : XLava Hott

There are much easier ways of getting center, without doing all that math lol perfect everytime

Helpful tip to save some math Measure the punch with the caliper While still in place, zero the caliper Then measure the coin and wallah the difference will appear on the caliper ( Once you half that number, don't forget to re-zero the caliper before marking the coin)
Comment from : Kevin Mahanna

Ruske Eblue
What side of the punch do you hammer into? Looks like your hitting the tapered side and the flat side is what cuts the coin, am I correct?

im not able to slide the flat end of the punch into the HF plastic guide any ideas
Comment from : Paul De Jesus

Scott Homler
when u use the punch is the beveled edge of the punch the side you strike?
Comment from : Scott Homler

All you need is a centering square, found on a combination square listed herebr wwwamazoncom/Oshlun-MTM-CS-12-Inch-Combination-Square/dp/B001KW00XY/ref=sr_1_4?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1455476253&sr=1-4&keywords=combination+squarebrbrWorks like a charm and doesn't require dozens of lines, but just two in the center Use those two lines like crosshairs in your punch, and you're donebrAs a machinist and fabricator, I've used this technique thousands of times and the accuracy is far better than you achieve with the method you're currently using, plus it's quickerbrbrCool hobbyhave fun

Mark Jackson
Use a washer same size as coin the round hole will be the center

Thanks for all your videos, has greatly helped me After watching your video I used a cad program and made a series of circles inside each other Had to play with it a bit so it would print out correctly I used 7/16 for the center hole punch, then quarter, kennedy half, liberty dollar After printing it out I can center punch any of the above mentioned easily Take a pair of sissors cut out the size circle of your coin Use a spot from glue stick and place perfectly on your coin Line up in punch block and punch After the first punch take the paper template off coin apply to another and this time center and drop punch in and wiggle coin slightly and it falls into place Use as many times as paper holds up Can punch several coins in a matter of minutes Works well br sitesgooglecom/site/stonesriveramateurradioki4ndn/news/easilycenterpunchcoinforringmaking

WOW That's the easiest I've seen to get dead center I just ordered my caliper! Thanks again fencekid
Comment from : The Gertie Birdie Chronicles

You could screw around doing this or go to any woodworking store that sells turning supplies and buy yourself a center finder Costs about 5 bucks Just lay it on the coin and draw center lines No math, no adjusting

DudeAre you sure??
fencekid, thanks for all the awesome DIY coin ring tutorials i've a question that is sort of related to the centering of a coin ring  I found a early 1900 Chinese coin with a dragon design that i wanted to use for the outside of the band i was wondering if i punch a small hole in an effort to save the rest of the dragon design, can i use a step drill and pvc pipe method if i'd be able to save the dragon design?  not sure if i explained it for you to understand what i'm trying to do anyway, let me know your thoughts  thanks!

Hey fencekid, my boy and I just wanted to say thanks for your videos He made a state quarter ring start to finish using what he's learned from your instructions (and Harbor Freight has a few more dollars of mine) Here's a link to the finished product -- thank you!  miloorg/images/PennsylvaniaRingjpg
Comment from : Craig Pennington

Just a thought here but couldn't you find the centre of a coin by simply laying the coin on a bit of paper drawing round it cutting that bit of paper out then folding the paper in half twice, then simply put that bit of paper on to the coin which will give you centre, then take a protractor and draw the middle hole on the paperbrbrOr place that bit of paper on a piece of card and do the hole thing on the card, then simply draw your hole directly to the coin using the card as your templatebrbrIt's just a thought to make it easier so you can make up many templates that could be reused
Comment from : flitsies

Ok, I just realized I've been using my punch set wrong I was punching with the tapered end  Maybe that's why my coins seem to move while I punch the hole  brDo you ever re-harden your rings once they are done?

Hi there fencekid Love your videos seen them all and i'm making some very nice rings because of them but i have decided to comment on this one because of all that free info that your givingwell i just needed to give something back :-) So you know how you ask us to use a fine tip??? I guess that's so it'll come off easier?? Well my friend i have one better After messing up a few coins because my digital caliper was crap I came up with an ideaif you put a piece of clear scotch tape on the coin you can use the ticker tip (i like that because i can see it better) then after you make the hole you can remove the tape and the marks from the marker too and if your off by a few mm you can add another piece of tape and go one size bigger on the punch to try to salvage the coin you ROCK man and thanks for all your videos

Michael Del Buono

Hey fence kid  I'm getting pretty good at regular coins like quarter, pennies, and half dollar using 7/16 punch I'm having a problem with Kennedy dollars They get too big and not even in complete ring form yet More like a flower any advice?

Brandon Ballman
When I make mine to find the center I spent 2$ on a washer set they come the same size as the coins penny's dimes quarters half dollar and morgan try it just put the washer on the coin that fits it get a marker and fill in the circle dead center
Comment from : Brandon Ballman

Tip: Do this once for each size coin then get a 3d printed blank the same size with a perfect sized hole in the middle Works perfectly every time
Comment from : James

Cant you just slide the caliper around whilst putting slight force with the pen to just make a circle?brbrIt wont be perfect, but it will work right? hehe

This is Don again I noticed since my last post, that when I get center using a digital caliper, I placed punch on to cicle drawed on coin, and circle is larger than punch! Could I have a bad caliper? I zero everytime I measure coin, punch, and circle diameter
Comment from : Jon C

Jon C
Hello fencekid,brHelp!!! I've done everything like your video says about finding  dead center but it never comes out right! Maybe two out of ten I've bought everthing like you use and I really enjoy making these rings but finding center is killing me I don't know what else to do The circle looks dead center but when I knock the hole, its off just a little Most people don't notice but I do!!!! I'm real careful when I put punch in and I hit it solid I even went and bought an anvil and mounted it on a car wheel Real sturdy Love your vids
Comment from : Jon C

Or take a sheet of paper trace shape of coin, cut out, fold in half twice, and lay over coin you have the center

Just an after thought What, if anything, do you do or make with the center cut?
Comment from : project sponge

Bryn Bushey
Hey fencekid I found a new way to find my center I use a digital caliper to find the center of the coin, and use it to scratch an X in the middle I check it from multiple sides to make sure it's dead center, then I take a scratch awl and carefully make a  nice, even divot where the X is Then, I put it between the die plates and eyeball the divot in to the middle Then I take a transfer punch the same size as the hole punch (I add a little teflon tape to make it fit tightly), and i put it through the guide plate and the point on the transfer punch will hopefully drop in to the divot in the coin (sometimes you have to wiggle the coin or punch a little) You can then spin the coin around if you can touch the edge, and determine if it is indeed dead center Then all you have to do is take out the transfer punch and put in the hole punch and giver her a whack (don't break that guide plate though! i have multiple times the last one shattered on me, luckily i was wearing eye protection) It sounds complicated but it's actually quite fast and so far I haven't punched a hole off more than 3/10ths of 1mm easy to fix with a round file

Great video!  I went out and spent way too much money on a punch set for quarters, half dollars and dollars  However, I get people I know handing me foreign coins all the time wanting rings made  Ordered the one off Amazon today  Your Etsy store looks great!  I love the way you finish off the fat end on your state quarter rings  Great craftsmanship

Most Auto parts stores "loan" tools ( with a deposit ) so you can use a Digital Caliper from one then return it and get your deposit back
