Balling up wire

BASICS_balling up wire

Use cross-locking tweezers to grasp a piece of wire at its mid-point or above, and dip the long end of the wire in flux. Hold the wire vertically, and lower the fluxed end of the wire into the tip of the inner blue cone of your torch’s flame. After a ball forms at the end of the wire, remove the flame, and then quench, pickle, rinse, and dry the wire.
