Most 14 Gauge Kanthal Wire Photos - Once i want to reduce the nichrome or kanthal twine, i discover that the usage of "reminiscence wire" cutters makes it nearly like slicing butter with a room temp knife. No longer perfect, however a lot less difficult! Also, the remark about placing the heavier pieces near the edges - need to be taken as by using the rims of the kiln fixtures or bead tree - now not the edges - or alternatively ends of the cord, because that could virtually sag. I droop all my pendants from hooks made from 17ga cord from the usual rods that include the roselli bead timber. Maybe i ought to upload some snap shots of my cone 6 kiln firings the usage of bead trees to my glaze publish this month? Look for pics on may additionally 20th here at the boc weblog :).
