Interesting Dave. Could you show an example of how it works?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

The wire used is plastic coated with a metal core of
0.040" diameter and O.D. of 0.080". Let me know if anything needs additional info.

I think a video is in order, I don't know what you are accomplishing or how you are getting there.

Nice, I think I've got it, but a video would be helpful.

I saw Ron Paulk use a store bought tool for wire wrapping a air hose onto a fitting, instead of using a screw hose clamp. He preferred the wire over a clamp because the wire could be easily covered to protect the customer's door jambs and floors from being scratched by a sharp edged screw type hose clamp.

Like others, I'm not sure what the purpose is or what you're trying to accomplish - a video or a better explanation would be helpful.

Some folks call me Vince - other folks call me...........

The wire binding tool in use.

The tool is used to tension the wire binding and then rotated 180 degrees around the bight to produce 2 clenches secured by the bight. The tails are then trimmed to 1/4" and knocked down. The last image shows a bird feeder hooked on the bracket.

I'm starting to see it David but the tying off part is still a little fuzzy.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
