Weave Sizes

 

A very common question we get on a fairly regular basis is, "What ring sizes will make this weave?"

To solve this question, We have created a chart that recommends OUR FAVOURITE Gauge and Ring Size for the more common weaves. Our suggestion may not be the only ring that will work, but in our opinion is the most common or popular.

Please remember that spring back will have an effect on all metals. Some softer metals might not work at all, and some strong metals might be looser than you expected. Also, as wire stock changes, there may be slight changes in spring back, thickness that isn't noticeable until you try a weave that is very picky on aspect ratio.

14 SWG = 2.0MM

16 SWG = 1.6MM

19 SWG = 1.0MM - Stainless Steel & Bright Aluminum Only

18 SWG =1.2MM

20 AWG = 0.80MM

22 AWG = 0.64MM

24 AWG = 0.51MM

THESE SIZE SUGGESTIONS WORK WITH OUR RINGS.  I CANNOT SPEAK TO RINGS MADE BY OTHER COMPANIES - WE ALL DO THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY, BUT THESE ARE THE SIZE COMBOS THAT WORK FOR US! THANKS EVERYONE!!
