I'm glad you are enjoying using your Jump Ringer. Regarding your
questions about annealing wire or finished jump rings don't do
it. We recommend using half hard wire for jump rings, not dead soft
and not annealing. There are two reasons for this:
Anything made from half hard wire is stronger and will last
longer than if made from dead soft or if annealed (and not
Everything being equal, harder wire (any material) will saw
cleaner than soft wire will. It will produce fewer and smaller
burrs. Of course any burrs that are produced may be eliminated by
tumbling but why not try to avoid them in the first place?
I hope this answers your questions. If you have any others, please
post them and I will respond.
