3xR # 29

I was hoping to be working with the ocean debris again this week, but instead I continued with another remnant piece. A band ring.

A usual I started with a pile of scrap

Played with layout until I was happy

Cleaned up the smaller bits with a little filing and sanding

Partially melted some hard solder to the backs of the little pieces

Sweat soldered the little bits down

Cleaned up the edges of the strip and formed it into a horseshoe using a ring mandrel and rawhide mallet

Brought the ends around to meet and soldered the joint

Hammered it back to round and presto

Remnant band ring.

Thanks for reading!
