FABRICATING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Take a set of Denovo bands from size 1-15 or whatever u carry in your Denovo box.
  2. Take some ratchets as shown in image 5. If you dont have ratchets, amazon.com use the link below $23 or search for Drive Ratchet on Amazon.
  3. https://www.amazon.com/40-Pieces-EPAuto-Reversible-Ratchet/dp/B01LZEMYOD/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=drive+ratchet&qid=1576372070&sr=8-5
  4. Match the Denovo bands to the ratchets as shown in image 7 and 7A. It should be a snug fit. Once you have the ratchet for each size of the denovo band, make sure u scribe the size number (image 7B) of that Denovo band on that ratchet. You can use a hand piece and any bur and scribe on the ratchet.

  9. Use the howe plier and give it a good pinch to conform the shape image 9.
  10. When the band is removed from the ratchet it should look nice and circular if you gave it a good pinch. see image 10.
  11. Take it to the spot welder. Give it to 2 tags of spot welding, not more. If more than 2 tag welds are done then it is difficult to split the band to remove it after the filling. see image 11 11A.

  13. The cut edges of the band are sharp and have to be rounded with a pair of scissors. See image 12 and 13.
  14. Use a small magnet pick up tool ($7.00)to remove the small sharp metal pieces so your DA or anyone fabricating the band wont get cut. IMAGE 14
