AR & RING SIZES
Dragonback can be made with rings with AR’s down to 5.0. Stainless 18swg 7/32″ rings work; other metals in that size might not have enough springback to reach a sufficient AR.
Metric sizes – approximately 1.2mm wire with a 6mm inner diameter.
TUTORIAL COLOR SCHEME
New rings are gold-ish and old rings are aluminum-ish.
Step 1: Make a strip of E4-1. It should be somewhat longer than you want the final chain to be.
Step 2: Put a ring through two edge rings. This is a TE connection. Subsequent rings will have both TE and AE connections.
Step 2a: A closeup of how the rings should be arranged.
Step 3: Add another ring, above the ring added in the previous. This time, there will be a AE connection on the left, and a TE connection on the right.
Step 3a: A closeup of how the rings should be arranged.
Step 4: Continue all the way across the side. Note that the last ring should have only an AE connection.
Step 5: Do the same thing on the other side…
Step 6: Adding rings all the way across…
Step 7: To the end of the side.
Step 8: Now we can start adding E4-1 rings to the top to finish up the chain.
Step 9: All the way across…
Step 10: To the end of the chain.
