After having made ovalish links with 4mm sterling wire(a job in
itself), and having assemble/soldered the links together, I come to
the twisting part to accomplish the curb chain. Following directions
from Alan Revere’s Professional goldsmithing, I attempted to make the
curb chain(which I have done quite well with smaller diameter wire).
The diameter of the wire makes it very hard to keep the links form
"kinking" as it twists(with or without lubrication), even after
frequent annealing. I am having a dificult time keeping the links
aligned. Any advise or comments would be appreciated, as a search of
the archives has been fruitless.
