>>2854>Is that a desing of your own making?
No, I found it in 2006 or so.
>Or is it build based on a machine that actually exists? If so des it have a name?
As in, a medieval tool? I don't remember, but it's fairly popular in modern chainmaille (homemade) industry. No idea about names though.
>Since you are handling metal it would mess your hands pretty quickly
Yes and no, you don't really use your hands since most of the work is done through tools like pliers and tweezers? (I think they're called that). It's be a good to use mittens/gloves though, just in case. Sometimes a you put too much force onto a movement and you can accidentally stab your hands/yourself with those (thankfully they don't have sharpen ends).
>also, are there any shcematics in wich i can found some measures? Because from the look of it i look at it like one of those chicken roasters, but on a mini version.
For the machine? Any size is fine, really, as long as it works. a length of 30cm for base and 15cm for the height should work, the longer the rod the better, but it should be fairly longer than the base plate.
For the thin metal rod though, the measures are standardized. 8mm is the most common ring internal diameter, but you can go as small as 6mm for "standard" weave and even 4mm or below if you're doing some fine work like jewelry. Note though that what gives the ring its internal diameter is the cross-section of the rod you're using, so the internal diameter of the ring depends on the rod you use (and thus you need a rod for each size). 8mm rings are done with a 8mm rod, and a 6mm ring with 6mm rod, etc.

Also damn, check those prices. I think $20 is too cheap now.
>I found your work interesting, would love to see a pic of that crossbow at least on the beta. Sorry in advance for so many questions.
Don't worry. Pics in the next post.
