    Hopefully posting this in the right section.

    Anyone know of a good source for copper split rings? I don't want the jump rings, but the split rings.

    Also, what size would be considered a good size, perhaps 14mm?

    I have some 8mm copper splits, but they're way too small. I'm wanting the same size ring on all my brass/copper key chain gadgets. Thanks.

    Copper is too soft as base material for a splitring. Various "copper" splitrings are brass or steel with a copper coat or veneer. I tried these years ago, but have since migrated away from splitting usage.

    Do you use jump rings instead?

    I no longer use any kind of metallic ring for my keys. I use paracord in various thickness or leather cord.

    I find a lot of the cheaper split rings are actually nickel-plated copper or brass, actually. You could try sanding a bit off to check, then reverse-electroplate it to take off the plating.
