In the video you will see that I am doing everything myself, if you have someone to help you, you will be able to cut the cobalt ring off so much easier.
Cobalt rings are so much harder than steel that normal steel cutting blades will not cut through a cobalt ring. In order to cut through a cobalt ring, you will need to purchase a diamond impregnated cutter, the pack we show in the video was purchased for about £5 from eBay.

This video is more of a close up, but unfortunately where I was both cutting the ring off, and filming it some shots do wander off from view. However we have still posted it as it is still a good video on how to remove a cobalt ring.
