    just wondering if n/e one knows where i can get some welded rings and how do i replace the new rings. i have a few jigs with weak rings and need to replace them. do i need a special tool to do it or do i have to take it to the pros?

    Do it your self, order some butt rings and silver solder it.
    very simple process, jmo.

    This might help. It takes a little practice at first and you can get rings from Rosco already pre-made. You just need to weld them.

    If you have a Harbor Freight store close by they have micro torches for a really good price. I think mine was on sale for like 4.99.

    For those of us not wanting to make them, can you buy quality rings anywhere? Real rings, not the ones with the flat sides.
