It is highly recommended that you purchase a kit. If the internal diameter of the ring is not exact, the project becomes much more difficult and possibly impossible. We are using aluminum rings because it keeps the cost down and they open and close easily. There will be some brass and sterling filled rings available at a cost of approx. $8 but these are not recommended for beginners.
NOTE: There are some tools available at the club but there is a limited supply.
