    Started making my own replacement. My Boone was lovely, but as the arthritis kicks in my hands are bigger. Ran a silver ring for a year, but I'm wearing it out as I'm anything but easy on my hands. This one is SS, and if I finish it I suspect it will last a long time.

    I've decided I don't need subtle in my life.

    I'm still around! I check in from time to time but haven't been by in a while as work has been nuts and we've been doing a ton of home remodeling the last two years. Everything still good with the rings?

    If fingers swell and rings need to removed, hospitals have cutters to remove jewelry. My understanding is that softer metals, gold and silver, come off without injury. Are there ways around the swelling issue? What about Ti and Stainless? Is there a potential for problems?

    Ever tried to cut titanium? It's HARD. That's one reason it's so expensive, not just rarity, but it's hard to machine and work with. I wore out a brand new hacksaw blade trimming a ti MTB bar.

    I've heard with some materials, tungsten carbine specifically, they don't cut it, they just hit it with a hammer so it shatters.

    I thought my finger got broken at a MTB race a few years ago, I yanked the ring off ASAP 'cause I knew it was going to swell. A rider in front of me endo'd and his bike came down on my hand, on the bars, chainring first. Race was over...

    Why do people feel the need to list all of their bikes in their signature?

    Thanks Rick!

    As far as removing stainless and Ti rings from damaged fingers hospitals don't seem to have any problem getting them off- most of the commercially pure Ti alloys cut pretty easy. Rings such as Tungsten carbide are usually broken off using a special set of pliers that crunches the ring. We cut off precious metal rings all time in our shop. One time we had a kid come in who had jammed a cartridge bearing race on his finger to wear as a ring and got it stuck. We tried everything to get that thing off but ended up having to send him to the hospital to have it removed. I'd be curious to know how the heck they removed that thing.

    I cut stainless and to pretty regularly. I've also mangled fingers and removed rings (I also take them off when using machine tools). All of f that is anecdotal, but these materials have been on the ring market for years, so I think statistics are on your side.

We even tried using diamond coated abrasive discs. Honestly the hardest part about cutting off rings is keeping people calm, especially the kids and elderly.
