A wire crimper is designed for shortening the length of the wire when installing wires in 100% wax foundation. This is a handy tool for removing the slack in a wire by crimping as much wire as needed to get it tight. When wiring frames, a tight wire will work much better than a loose wire at holding the foundation straight.
The crimper works by taking the straight wire and bending it using the spoked wheels, the tiny bends in the wire will take up the extra length without having to re-wire the frame.
This wire crimper is formed to fit your hand easily with its plastic handle and curved design. The metal wheels spin in the crimper around the wire as you are using it. You will be surprised at how effective it works.
