Topics: Wire Wrapping, Filing

Q.
After wrapping loops, I sometimes need to file the end of the wire smooth. Is there a special file designed for this?

A.
Yes! It's called a metal needle file. Use a flat one for removing the burrs caused by cutting wire. Another great trick for making perfect wrapped loops is to use flat-nose or chain-nose pliers to gently squeeze the wire end so it sits flush with the rest of the wrapped loop.
