    Hi All,
    I have been CB6KS for over a year now. I use the largest ring but have had regular ball pop out problems. I have tried different spacer options all the time. When I try to move down a ringsize everthing fits real snug and I am very happy. The only problem with the smaller ring is my skin gets nipped after it folds over a fraction. Now the perfect solution would be for me to try and enlarge the ring size a fraction. I have tried all sorts of mini grinder heads and drill bits on their sides but the stuff the rings are made of is so tough I cannot get that fraction bigger. Has anyone made the ring size a fraction bigger and with what tools?
    I have made the largest ringsize a bit smaller with tape etc but that is not good long term hygine so I want to move down a ring size - a fraction.

    Any practical help out there without a degree in nuclear physics?

    dubsub happy lashed and locked.

    dobsub, I've used a dremel tool with a sandpaper head on it to work on my rings. It mars the finish, but it does work very quickly and efficiently. Actually a little TOO quickly. I made a divot that I had to smooth out a bit. lol

    Thanks Mike, What is a dremel tool? I bought a small grinding stone for my drill and it was so slow and made no impression.

    Thanks,

    Here's an example of a dremel tool on amazon.com:

    I used the attachment that's 6th from the left in this picture. It looks like a little drum with sandpaper on it.
