*** An improvement over the Folding Cones made out of softer phenolic material, these new folding cones are made to last as they are made from hardened stainless steel (and when wrapped with pipe thread seal tape won’t damage your coins’ detail), the new material allows the coin to glide against the folding cone easier without getting “stuck” and eating into the cone as was often the case with the soft phenolic folding cones.

*** With the new rounding, finishing and polishing mandrel set, you can now obtain the best, most rounded and uniform high quality smooth, shiny, and even finish to the NON-REEDED edges of your coin rings by quickly getting rid of those unsightly, uneven, flat edges.

No more having to use nail buffing files, sanding by hand, using steel round files or de-burring tools to finish your rough coin ring edges… nothing else performs better in completing this critical aspect of coin ring-making!

*** Here are a few reviews from folks that have used these tools: ***

— ”Hey Martin, when you contacted me and said that you had Folding Cones made out of an improved type of material that you wanted me to test out, I was curious and excited to see what kind of results I would get with them. After having done numerous Half Dollar and Morgan Dollar coin rings, I can definitely say that I like this material better than the other cones that I had previously purchased mainly because the material of your newer cones seems tougher; but most importantly, your new material allows the coin to move down the sides of the folding cones easier without getting hung up and chewing into the cones as much as with the other material. I previously used the delrin balls that I had to make the first press into the coins but have since switched over to your stainless starter cone, which saves the folding cones from unnecessary wear and tear. Overall the new folding cones are holding up nicely after having now made over 30 coin rings with them. Thanks, and great job!” — Jerry R. of Memorable Coin Rings

 

— “Fast shipping and well made kit. The starting cone will likely last forever and using it makes the first fold more self-assured, it minimizes wear on the synthetic cones and removes the worry about having to replace them. It’s worth noting that it would be great if every company which offered products was like this one and they were constantly looking for ways to improve on and lengthen the life span of their products. As a business model, it would elevate creativity and quality above planned obsolescence. It would obviously be more profitable to make the tools inexpensively and let the ring makers use them until they wear out and then have to replace them. The tools bought here are not only designed to enable the making of professional level rings but to last as long as possible, saving the ring makers from repeat spending.”

— “Hello Martin. I received and used your starter cone and what a difference having the right tool for the job can make! I purchased your Stabilizer dies and can now use this starter cone because of the new lower profile-fit with my Durston ring stretcher. This will make my folding cones that I purchased from you last so much longer, thanks!” — Mark T.

The TOTAL Coin Ring Start-to-Finish FOLDING Bundle!

With this bundle, you can now begin and finish folding over all of your coin rings!

This New and Improved Coin Ring Folding Bundle includes the improved Stainless Steel Starter Cone, and the improved Set of Universal Stabilizing Folding Cones!

Stainless Steel Starter Cone AND improved Folding Cone Set in 1 Kit

Stainless Steel Starter Cone AND improved Folding Cone Set in 1 Kit

The stainless steel starter cone has an updated lower profile, for the necessary clearance for use on ring sizing machines with low ram head clearances, especially when the “Stabilizing”/Reduction Dies are used to punch a center hole into a US Quarter, US Half Dollar, Morgan/Peace Dollar, or the American Silver Eagle coins.

This tool is designed to begin folding coins with 1/4” center-punched holes, all the way up to 5/8”+ center-punched holes. The first initial fold produces the most wear and tear on your folding tools.

By starting the fold with this tool, the folding cones and delrin balls are not subjected to the sharp edge of the center-punched hole in the coin, therefore greatly reducing wear on your folding tools. For a complete detailed description of the improved starter cone, click on the link below:

NEW Folding Cones and Spacer Set for Folding all of Your Coin Rings!

IMPROVED FOLDING TOOLS!

With innovation comes constant change and tweaking, so an improvement over the current Folding Cones made out of phenolic is now available to all coin ring makers!

These new folding cones are slightly tougher, but are still softer than most metals in coins, so the folding cones won’t damage your coins’ detail at all.

Another major benefit to this improved material is that it allows the coin to glide against the folding cone easier without getting “stuck” and eating into the cone as was often the case with the phenolic folding cones.

These improved Stabilizer Folding Cones are more effective at folding coins than the plastic delrin bearing balls are, due to their unique design; which allows them to do a much better job of keeping the coin level as it’s being folded over into your reduction dies when using either a Ring Sizer Machine, an Arbor Press, or a Hydraulic Press.

To begin, you simply set the coin level into your reduction die, insert an appropriate size folding cone into the beveled center punched hole, and then begin to press the coin down into the die.

What’s the Best Way to Sell Your Coin Rings?

This is a question that I get asked a lot: where do I go to sell / how do I go about getting others interested in buying my coin rings that I make?

There are many creative ways to get started selling coin rings, and all of the ways that I’m going to list below have either very little or in most cases NO out-of-pocket expense involved to implement them.

friends and family

1.) Friends and Family. No, this is not a commercial for a cell phone plan, but you should be going to your friends, family, co-workers, and just about anyone else that you know when you’re first starting out making coin rings. It’s much easier to introduce this to people that know you and that you have some type of connection with. They can give you the confidence necessary when you’re just beginning.

2.) Flea Markets / Arts and Craft Fairs. This can be a great way to meet people and where you can show people what you make. I would not recommend actually spending money in the beginning to rent booth space, rather; I would walk around to the OTHER vendors that are already there and I would strike up a conversation that way. I actually did this when I attended my first local Farmers Market/Craft Fair when I was starting out and I ended up selling the Walking Liberty Half Dollar that I was wearing on my finger to a vendor that same day!

 

community board

3. Community Boards. These boards can be found virtually everywhere: in coffee shops, supermarkets, and other places where people gather. You can tack up a business card if you have one made up for coin rings, or you can print off your name and # along with a picture of one of your coin rings and generate some interest that way from folks who look at those boards.

 

Facebook Groups image

4.) Joining FaceBook Groups. This method is probably the easiest and most effective way to generate interest in your coin rings. There are many different groups to join, such as Arts & Crafts Groups, How-To / DIY, (or “Do-It-Yourself”) Groups, and even Misc. Groups. The best part is: you can create your own group or ask to join Groups from all over the country if you don’t mind shipping your coin rings.

 

Coin Ring Making is becoming more and more popular, and using one or more of the methods described above can help you to create awareness around your new hobby and even get you some coin ring sales!

The BEST Way to Protect your Folding Tools BEFORE Folding to Make a Coin Ring

So you’ve selected the coin that you’d like to make into a coin ring, you’ve annealed and center-punched a hole into it, and you’re ready to begin folding it down into a reduction die.

BEFORE doing so, you want to make sure that you protect the surfaces of your folding cones from premature wear and tear; and one of the BEST ways to do so is by beveling, or ROUNDING OUT the 90° edges on the top and bottom of the center-punched hole in your coin.

Center hole in coin

Notice the 90° sharp edges on the inside of the hole in the coin just prior to deburring.

 

You can accomplish this process best by using a tool called a “deburring tool” that can be purchased online at Amazon.com for example for less than $10.00. One example of a deburring tool can be found below:

Center hole in coin3

Deburring Tool purchased from Amazon.com for less than $10.00

 

You grip the deburring tool in one hand and the coin in the other, and with nice and even strokes; begin to work your way around BOTH sides of the coin, keeping an even amount of pressure all the way around the hole.

No more sharp edges and ready for folding!

Even after you’ve softened the inside edges of the hole in your coin by beveling, another trick to further lengthen the work-life of your folding cones is to START your first fold with something called a Stainless Steel “Starter Cone”, which helps to eliminate the perpendicular edge to the coin where it meets the surface of the folding cone, (which is at that point where the most amount of wear will occur to the surface of your folding cone(s). Another added benefit to deburring the hole is that you eliminate any micro-tears that may have been created by punching a hole.

If you own a set of my “Stabilizing” Reduction Dies, you’ll need to start the folding process with a Stainless Steel Starting Cone. The reason being is that there is not enough initial clearance for the folding cone to fit under the ram head and your coin prior to the folding process.

You’re now ready to further fold your coin over!
