Do you make chainmail and does aspect ratio drive you crazy?
Even a Mastermailler like myself has to admit that the vagaries of jump ring aspect ratio sometimes drive me crazy - especially with material spring-back - which is why I leave jump ring manufacturing to the professionals.
Combating these flusterations are some great software tools such as this handy-dandy chainmail/jewelry aspect ratio calculator capable of computing the inner diameter, wire diameter and aspect ratio of jump rings. This windows program also converts fractions to Metric (MM) and Imperial (inch) measurement and I supports both American (AWG) and Standard Wire Gauges (SWG).
Bravo to the developer for this awesome app and as always Chain-on!
