My first thought was that I could set the dapped spoked circle on a bench block and melt the spokes into balls. It worked fine for one or two, but then the spokes started to fall inward. I then picked it up with a pair of chain nose pliers I use only when using a torch. Holding the flame of the torch below the spoke, as when making balled head pins, worked well. It is VERY easy to go too far. Heat, pull away slightly, heat, pull away slightly with the torch until the desired result is achieved on the tip of each spoke. Do not quench the piece but let the piece cool on the solder block. Moving it to a bench block after 30 seconds or so will hasten the cooling process. Hint: On many projects, Argentium does not get fire scale. However, because so much heat is used on this piece, using flux can help with fire scale.
