Okay, my seams are much better, thanks to the many suggestions
provided I’m happily filing away with a new set of needle files, and
using a mitre vise as a guide.
Fusing seems to be going well, after all of the tips and watching
Ronda C’s DVD. Dancing flux (yellow flux), and thesheet (22 ga) rings
(a touch under 1/2 inch in width) seem to be fusing well.
Now I have run into another problem - the seams partially splitting
apart when I reshape the ring on my steel mandrel and/or planish the
ring. If it was a full split, I’d re-file, re-fuse. But a partial
split??? Suggestions on not only fixing this issue but avoiding it
would be very much appreciated
