Hi all. I’m working on some bracelets that involve soldering a
number of narrow strips side by side onto a backing layer. I’m
starting with 16 guage flat sterling wire, 2mm wide and 6.5 inches
long. I’m stamping designs on the wire in random irregular patterns.
This naturally deforms and torques the wire from its original state.
I need to file down these irregularities and true-up the strips so
the edges are completely straight and parallel with each other- so
when the strips are layed side by side they fit flush and tight, with
no gaps. I’ve tried a number of things to achieve this precision, but
am less than happy with the results. Anyone have a bright idea?
Thanks in advance!
