Place the end of the wire into the jaw of the Wubbers® half-round Mandrel Pliers positioning the edge of the wire even with the edge of the jaw. Close the pliers.
Tip: Work directly off the wire spool to prevent waste.
Squeeze the pliers firmly, securing the end of the wire in place, then press the wire around the outside of the desired sized half-round mandrel.
Open the jaw of the pliers, keeping the wire in position, then place the wire between the jaw and press firmly closed. Wrap the wire around the jaw once more, making sure to not wrap over the previous wire.
Continue to wrap the desired number of half round rings, working toward the back of the pliers.
Pull the wire from the mandrel, holding the wire tightly in place. Use flush-cutters to cut through the center of the flat side of the rings.
Use the resulting links to connect a handle to a handbag or purse or use as links in a jewelry design
Use multiple sized mandrels without cutting between links to create nested shapes in the design
