A New Toy
This is a fun new tool! The Industrial Tube-Wringer is meant to squeeze the very last little bit out of a tube of something like toothpaste. But we can use it to pleat thin gauge metal sheet and wire. I tested it with some paper card stock and then dove into my scrap to try it out on some little bits! It's fun and easy, but you must anneal the metal first. Time to design some jewelry with bits of pleated metal!
