Product Description

Create tight even spirals consistently every time you want to twist wire. Use with base metal or precious metal wire.
First, how each part moves. The top is the jaws. There are two arms, one stationary and one that moves. There is a central core. There is a shiny metal piece hugging the central core. This moves up and down, and is the release for the one arm that moves. At the bottom of the central core is a silver colored knob, that if you pull (and turn) it out, you see it's pulling a spiral column. Second, Basics of operation: 1) you take one end of the wire you want to twist, and attach it to something that won't move. This could be a vice, or a nail embedded in a piece of wood. 2) you take the other end of the wire, open the jaws of the pliers, then close the jaws onto the wire. You open the jaws, by freeing the movable handle. 3) then lock the handle back down, before twisting. The PULL-TO-TWIST feature of the pliers: 4) you pull out the knob/spiral column as far as it will go, while holding the pliers steady, and keeping the wire taut (drawn tight). 5) then you hold the knob/spiral column in a fixed position, and let the pliers rotate loosely in your hand (let the tool spin free), and this twists the wire. Again, keep the wire taut. Choose the length of wire much longer than you want to end up with. Twisting wire "shrinks" it. Usually you want a piece of wire that is twice the length you want to end up with, plus another 15-20% length.
