    How To Make A Naval Aviation Ring

    Well, I have a ring going out to a former Naval Aviator so I detailed some of the process here sohe could see them(and also visit our Forum):

    Here in picture form are the steps to make a ring:
    Choose a coin according to the client:

    Punch an exact center hole in the coin:

    Use a cone and die to "unfold" the coin:

    Use the ring stretcher to open up the hole to make a rough ring:

    Grind off the detail on the outside and polish with 2000 grit and Mother's Mag polish:

    Lastly solder the bent wings to the ring and 'Voila'
