What is on Your Jeweler's Bench Wednesday

Today in the studio I have taken the bench shear to 18 gauge copper sheet metal to cut strips for bangles.  Love the Pepe bench shear with the time saved by not sawing or using a cumbersome set of hand shears to cut one after the other.  The edges are beautifully finished with only needing a good hammer polish to take off a slight burr.
