At present the G6/G8 sterling wire that I order comes from coils,
i.e. slightly bent. I want to work with sections that are completely
straight, as in rods. I’ve tried correcting the curve with protected
pliers, protected vice and the rolling mill but I can’t get a
perfectly straight, unmarked finish (especially with shorter
sections) and it would be so much better if I could buy the wire
completely straight in the first place. Is this possible? If anyone
could help with some ideas that would be great.
