Question:

Can you tell me how to use the automatic wire twister? Thanks.

-Gale in Rockville, Maryland

Answer:

Hi Gale, I would like to direct you to Getting Twisted, an article all about wire twisters and how to use them. (This article is also reprinted in the written directions that come with our Automatic Wire Twister).

When describing how to use tools, sometimes it is easier to show rather than tell. Wire-Sculpture Faculty member Sherrie Lingerfelt did a video tip showing how to twist wire, which you can find here: Extremely Easy Ways to Twist Jewelry Wire. We have another video just on the automatic wire twister here. I hope this all helps!

    Although I have several tools that help twist wire, what I like best is the Morton Wire Twister. This is an inexpensive tool that was actually designed for stained glass artists. I’ve had mine for 18 years & it is still as wonderful as when I bought it & my other stained glass tools. It sells for anywhere from $1.49 to $8.95 & is still available.
