Hi this is Megan with and I'm going to show you how to use a wire rounder tool this specific one is a Eurotool wire rounder tool and it comes with a pen vise and it comes with two different sizes of these little end and they're called cup burrs and what this is for is if you ever do any wire working like wire wrapping anything like that then you know that the edge of your wire is kinda sharp and pokie. If you want to do anything with the edge of your wire is not going to be tucked behind your works such is if you're making an earring hook or an hook and eye anything where you need the end of your wire to be smooth and not so scratchy that's what this is for you can see maybe it's kind of tiny you can see the end here on the cup burrs this one is very small and this one is a little bit bigger what it is is it has an abrasive surface inside it's a little tiny cup and the inside is abrasive and it's round in there. It's like a half circle and what you're going to do is pick the size that fits best to your wire you can just kind of hold it in there and see first of all make sure that your wire is cut flat so you want to flat side of your flush cutters then you can see which one will fit in there better I'm using a bigger wire so I'm going to use the bigger one all you do is unscrew you're pin vise put your cup burr into the pin vise and then tighten that back up grip here and here because this part will move and you won't tighten anything now you're going to take your piece of wire that's sharp and not very friendly and put it right into the tip of the cup burr and twist it back and forth kind of more it around and you can feel it kind of having a little bit of abrasion as you go push it on there and really spin spin spin you's gonna keep working until you feel like it's nice and smooth and that is all there is to it. You can do this for like I said your earring hooks or an hook and eye anything that you want to make sure that your tip of your wire is nice and smooth and that's all there is too it.
