    Your problem with these is that they've already been soldered (or welded) when the ring was added to the bail. The simplest solution is to cut it off completely before you start, make your own jump...

    What a lovely otter! We're also huge fans - though I can't imagine having a real one as a pet.

    I think this one needs a name though!

    Tronex razors. Not cheap, but that's for a reason. Watch out for sizes, as many are not rated above 16ga and will be damaged easily. There's an oval headed version that's good up to 14ga (about...

    I have both the Swanstrom and the Pepe, and other than for very large sizes, the Pepe is my go-to tool. Better range of sizes, I find the clamping mechanism easier and less sticky, and I like the...

    The other option is Noirit, but I see that's now been classified as dangerous as well and can only be sent to VAT registered customers. I like it because it's prediluted and ready to use, so there's...

    No snow here (we've only had a couple of flurries in the last week or so) but bitterly cold. I hate it.

    What about Didy's as worn for lampwork? I know they're specifically for soda flare, but they do a lot to reduce general glare and certainly keep everything else pretty sharp.

    Personally, without a laser setup, I'd send it back. It just smells of failure. That's quite apart from the horrific smell you'll get from whatever's inside the moment a flame goes near it.

    I would also consider working with fine silver - it's softer, and more tarnish resistant. Otherwise, look at Argentium as an option - slightly more expensive, but no tarnish and shines up beautifully.

    Nope! Sterling, and fully hard at that. I'm sure I had some plan for it at the time, but it's probably been lurking at the bottom of my bullion drawer for 20 odd years.

    Now that shows that you don't wear earrings Dennis. The moment you have a heavily forged area on the wire like that, you risk it travelling up into the piercing, where it cuts and irritates. Horrid....
