My wire keeps breaking when I am using my wire twister tool. Some times the wire breaks off in the twister and other times the folded end will break in the vice. This can happen after only a few twists. How can I keep my wire from breaking?

Make sure you're using good quality wire and twisting it slowly and carefully. As the twist gets finer, the wire can break easier due to the stress of twisting.
