ready to assemble

ready to assemble, originally uploaded by ebbandflo_pomomama.

Well ......... the soldering certainly isn't portable but the next stages in the assembly of this ring most definitely have potential for completion on the run (unless you are averse to having grubby fingers).

The soldered bezel needs some more filing to shape it for a close fit onto the ring for the last soldering step. I have some cute and portable needle files for this job.

.... and the body of the ring could do with a preliminary tidy up by rasping the sharp edges.

Both jobs can be accomplished anywhere as long as I grab my portable polishing kit portable polishing kit before heading out (click on the photograph to see the labels).

Sanity is restored while on the move!
