How Gold Rings are Made-
Gold rings aro mado from bars
nino or liftoen inches long. A bar fif
teen inches long, about two inches
wide and threo sixteenths of an inch
thick, is worth about $1,000. It would
makn 300 four ponny.weight rings.
A dozen processes nnd twenty minutes
tunc are required to change tho bar in
to merchantable rings. A pair ot
shears cut tho bar into strips. By tho
turn of a wheel, ono, two or threo
times, the guillotino blade of the shears
cuts tho bar into slices, one, two or
three-sixteenths of an inch wide. A
rolling maohino presses out tho strips
and makes them iiat or grooved, liaci
strip is then put undor a blowpipe and
aunoaled l ho oxldo ot copper comes
to tho surface, nnd is put into a picklo
of sulphuric acid, and tho bit of gold

a machino that bends it into the shapo
