Captive Ring Tools
These tools are used to make rings that are loose, yet remain captured by the workpiece. Captive Rings are often added for decoration on goblets or weed pots and other spindle work. This design has a bevel on both sides to allow you to shape the rings and separate them from the workpiece using only one tool. You can use the Bead Forming Tools to shape the top of the ring. The Captive Ring tools are made of M2 high speed steel and are sharpened using a Diamond Hone or slip stone.
