Looking for ideas for a ring press design. I have poked around on Google and see several different ones. Looking for something lightweight and not too bulky.

I build an MDF box with a carriage bolt coming through the center. There are several different sized circles with a slot cut in them to spread clamping pressure evenly. I also use boxes of lead bullets for smaller sets of rings. Each bullet box weighs about 20 lbs.

I build up my rings directly on the lathe. You only have to wait 5 minutes between rings so it's a good time to sweep or put clutter away for just a few minutes.

Granted, I haven't been doing segmented pieces for a while, but when I did I used this method.
