Great video review by Erika on 7/7/2018
Very valuable information and well delivered . Much easier than trying to remove the rim with a dremmel tool. Loved the construction using the rings and frit !
Another great video thanks Nathan and Aae for this .
Excellent. review by Marlene on 6/23/2018
I enjoyed this video very much, I learnt some tricks that I can use in other applications. I’ve watched it twice and I still question wether or not the drop ring is kiln washed.
