Hi guys, I have a job coming up where I need to make snap rings to a pretty close tolerance. I normally make rings by winding wire then cutting off the coil. This time I am thinking, is there a better way, should I make a sizing tool. Ultimately the quantity required could run to a couple of hundred, but over a long period of time.
The desired material is stainless tig wire (1.6mm) my inside dimension will be 16mm. I am making my own as I can't find any off the shelf items and the size could get tweeked as the project progresses. Open to ideas and suggestions.
