    Try a kitchen microplane (like you use for parmesan cheese) for reducing wax volume. Never clogs, removes a lot of material quickly but in a very controlled manner.

    My wifes wedding band was left with the final hammer marks too. As time goes on, they will gradually wear smooth to a perfectly smooth, polished band. Takes about 7 years. There may be some symbolism about starting off with many facets and working towards a perfect finish in there somewhere?Incidentally, the master goldsmith Ken Moffat who made our wedding bands, also pattern welds GOLD DAMASCUS rings... Just saying.

    Just don’t wear your ring while working. To easy to de-glove your finger, seen it happen a lot. If you have to wear a ring get a rubber one the will rip off and not jerk your finger off. Congratulations by the way.

    Since copper has a similar melting point to gold, is it a good way to practice?

    2:23 I could never wear a ring. I have one of those fingers that have large knuckles and small base so anything that fit my knuckles would be loose on my finger and any smaller would NEVER come off.

    You should glue some rubber tips on that little V devise you cut and file your rings on. Or better yet go to the local Walmart, in the paint section you will find rubber dip for tolls. Enough said
