I’ve had my PUK 3 for awhile, I primarily use it for making chains
and really never done much else with it than welding jumprings shut.
Recently I’ve been attempting to expand what I do with my chains,
but I’ve been running into some problems. Primarily attempting to
add jumprings to settings in order to work them into my chains. My
jumprings are mostly in the 26ga range, making them aprox…34mm. The
settings are more than double that that at.80mm. So far most of my
attempts with the PUK have resulted it nothing happening or the
jumpring being severely deformed or destroyed. I assume this is due
to the size difference.
Has anyone had any luck with this? Or is it something that’s just
unlikely to happen? I’ve thought about trying laser wire, but I’m
not sure if that would make much of a difference or not. While I can
resort to soldering normally, welding would offer me greater
control, accuracy of placement and speed.
