12 Gauge Nichrome Wire - Once i need to cut the nichrome or kanthal wire, i locate that the usage of "reminiscence twine" cutters makes it almost like slicing butter with a room temp knife. No longer perfect, but a lot less difficult! Also, the remark approximately placing the heavier portions near the rims - should be taken as with the aid of the edges of the kiln furniture or bead tree - no longer the edges - or rather ends of the twine, because that might simply sag. I droop all my pendants from hooks crafted from 17ga wire from the usual rods that include the roselli bead trees. Maybe i ought to upload a few pix of my cone 6 kiln firings using bead timber to my glaze post this month? Search for snap shots on might also twentieth here on the boc blog :).
Marsha, thanks for including to this discussion. Memory twine cutters, what a extraordinary concept. Thank you for clarifying approximately the rims, of course i knew what you supposed but i will see it is able to be confusing. I suppose we'd all be pleased to have you ever encompass pictures of your cone 6 kiln firings the use of bead bushes to your glaze submit this month. Thanks so much for taking into account it.
I fire to cone 6-7 and tried using 15 gauge nichrome twine, after the primary firing, it sagged surely badly. Now i exploit kanthal a-1 16 gauge and have been using the identical twine over and over and not using a troubles. It's awesome stuff! I am getting it on ebay.
Thank you all - its one of these questions i had to find out to be used in earrings (simply starting and mastering ) i've been using my lampwork mandrels for putting the beads - 5/32 or large - i exploit bolt cutters to reduce that large - the mandrels are 318l chrome steel welding rods that come in 3ft long sections- so i cut to the scale i want (my mandrels are usually 1 feet lengthy)p i buy a whole tube of them so i have masses around my studio - they do now not sag a great deal but i've found out to position a center submit to hold them up just to be secure - i would love to peer images of loaded kilns.
