Zigging and Zagging my WireI wanted to find a tool to crimp my bezel and cloisonne wire. I thought it would be fun to put wire into my enameled pieces. I also envision some funky wire wraps. And I wanted something heavy duty enough to ruffled the edges of thin sheet metal. I found this tube-wringer in TDSONLINESTORE. It's one of my favorite supplies shops on Etsy and their prices are reasonable. I was surprised that it actually is made to wring the stuff out of a large tube of something. Hence, it's name and "duh" to me.
It has a crank handle on one side,
and gears in the middle.
|what a mess!|
I started with some copper cloisonne wire. One end of the wire goes between the gears, turn the handle while holding it closed, and out comes:
zigs and zags of wire! Now what can I make with this? Any ideas?
