Removing Nicks and Scratches
by Dale Armstrong
Question:

How do I remove the nicks & scratches from 16/18 ga wire? I've used needle nose pliers to wrap 24 ga around it in several places and a loop on the top?
Instructions
Answer:

If the nicks are coming from using the needle-nose chains to hold the large wire while you coil a smaller around it, try using a pair of flat-nose pliers to hold your work instead. You can also temporarily cover the area of wire you are holding with tape.
