Reducing the width of a rectangular wire


#1

Reducing the width of a rectangular wire can be difficult, as the
wire tends to turn while rolling. To alleviate this problem hold
the wire in a pair of parallel pliers leaving about a half inch
protruding from the jaws. Feed this end into the rollers until the
jaws of the pliers make contact with the rollers. As you continue
to roll, allow the wire to pull from the pliers. The force of the
plier’s jaws will keep the wire upright. Brad Simon CMBJ
