Chestnut Canoe Painter rings

Here's how to make brass ring bolts to match early Chestnut Canoe Company painter rings:

1. Wrap a length of 1/8" brass rod around a 7/8" diameter steel bar

2. Cut the spiral lengthways

3. Put them through an eye formed in a length of 3/16" rod

4. Cut to length & thread the end of the bolt.

5. Silver solder the joints & clean up.
