On the Bench- Making Fibula Safety Pins
I used a 9" piece of 12 gauge copper wire this time bending the spring part first, the swirl next and then the catch. Hammering and adjusting are also involved to make that perfect pin.
This batch is going through the tumbler to provide depth, hardness and a fab shine.
Wubbers pliers, a ball pien hammer, steel block, sandpaper, steelwool and assorted files were used in this project.
