Recently I have added beads to some of my necklace designs and
thought that the diamond bead reamer set from Rio grande would be a
useful item to have as some of my beads are too small for the silver
wire I want to use. So having bought a set I started to use the
thinnest point and had it break within the first three minutes of
use. I was using water as a lubricant as the instructions say
but… Do any of you know how to prevent this in the future or
is it a usual thing? I was using it on a antique glass bead which had
a hole only slightly smaller than I needed.
Thanks for any help you can give.
And special thank you to Hanaman and his untiring efforts to keep
this wonderful forum alive and blooming.
