  Artistic Wire Spriral Maker Large

Price: $14.99

: 228A-510

  • These Spiral Makers create perfect spirals out of Artistic Wire, German Style Wire and any other soft wire 20 ga (0.81 mm) and smaller. Use colorful spirals to embellish jewelry, scrapbooks and paper crafts. Use small pieces of the diameter wire you intend to make the spiral as a washer on the three screws. Tighten wing nuts and insert the same gauge wire into the device. Center the wire in the center hole and insert the twister handle so the wire is inside the slit on the handle. Twist the handle until the desired size of coil is reached. Tip: count the number of turns to re-create the same size coils for multiple coils, or perfectly matching earring dangles.

Using the spiral maker August 29, 2014
Reviewer: Fran from Overland Park, KS United States  
Just received this product yesterday and tried it out.  It is pretty easy to use but takes a little practice to get the tension correct.  If you wind too quickly the spiral unwinds like an uncoiling spring when you remove it from the tool.  The larger version comes with turning handles for different guages of wire.  The finer one - for 20 guage, works very well.  The thicker guages of wire, 18 or 16 are quite difficult.  The largest practical finished size for 20 guage wire appears to be about 1/2 to 5/8 inches in diameter.  Larger than that and the finished spiral becomes a bit "floppy".  I like the tool and will use it quite a bit but I think I will need to practice on inexpensive wire first.
This is actually the second one of these I ordered.  The first one, in the smaller size, was defective - the central holes did not line up.  I returned it for a refund of the product price, and was given the option of free shipping with my next order.
