Trimming and tucking wire

When you finish wrapping one wire around another, use flush cutters or the flush side of diagonal wire cutters to trim the wrapped wire as close as possible to your work. Use chainnose pliers to press down or “tuck” the very end of the wrapped wire so that lies parallel to the wraps. 

 

Whenever possible, trim and tuck wire on the back of your work and away from friction points where the tucked wire could snag on clothing or skin.
