Wrap armature wire around a dowel rod to create coils.
Slide the dowel rod out when desired length is achieved. Round Pliers can also be used to create coils or rounded shapes.
Always hold one side of the wire and point the smaller side down towards the table to prevent the cut piece from flying up.
Thin wires can be cut using old scissors. (Soft Wires, Flat Wires, 1.5mm Armature Wire, Craft Wires and Florist/Rainbow wires).
Use wire cutters for thicker wires (3mm Armature wire)
Flat Wire can be joined to round wire. Bend the flat wire around the round wire.
Use flat nosed pliers to crimp the flat wire and secure it to the round wire.
