Hammer & Clamps

  • Description

    In this video, I explain the differences between many hammers & clamps prior to setting any style of ring.
    The optimum phrase is 'being comfortable' in setting stones. You don't want your hand to hurt or have your clamp literally fall into pieces!
    Your hammer should weigh just enough you the results you need. But the hammer must not be too heavy or your hand will get tired. "A tired hand gives you poor results!"
