20 Gauge Pre-tinned Wire - 1 lb

20 Gauge Pre-tinned Wire - 1 lb

Great product!, April 8, 2015 5 stars
Pros
I use a LOT of this wire for embellishing my pieces. The pre-tinned copper is a real time-saver for me. I use all gagues of ARCOR wire and they make a consistently good product.
Cons
None.
Other Thoughts
Wish I could get 5 lb. spools!
1/4 Copper Backed Foil - 1.0 Mil

1/4" Copper Backed Foil - 1.0 Mil

Good value., April 8, 2015 4 stars
Pros
Black and Copper back stick pretty well. I have had problems with Venture Silver back. I prefer thinner foil and the Venture 1.0 mil seems to hold up pretty well to burnishing and tight bends.
Cons
My experience: Silver back does not stick as well.
Metal Fan Base

Metal Fan Base

Item# 16606
Nice looking base., April 8, 2015 4 stars
Pros
This is a nice looking lamp base and adds a more elegant look than the standard oak bases.
Cons
These bases are fairly brittle and break easily if dropped on a hard surface.
E6000 - 3 Pack

Stong bond., April 8, 2015 5 stars
Pros
I use this for everything from attaching jewelry bails to glass-on-glass applications. Sets up fast and cures to a very strong bond. The small tube 3-pack is great for those who forget (ahem...) to put the cap back on when done. Better than letting a large tube dry out.
Cons
None.
Re-Strip Copper Reinforcing Strip - 100 feet

Re-Strip Copper Reinforcing Strip - 100 feet

Great product!, April 8, 2015 5 stars
Pros
I recently used this re-strip in a pantry door. I did not want unsightly re-bars interrupting the flow of the design in the window. Placing the re-strip in the channels of the lead came provided plenty of structural integrity while preserving the design.
Cons
None.
Other Thoughts
It wants to uncoil, so I put the re-strip in an old CD case to use as a dispenser. You can also cut one of the corners of the packaging and dispense through that.
Spooled Lead - 1/4 Round H

Spooled Lead - 1/4" Round H

Item# 5582SP
I'm a believer!, April 8, 2015 5 stars
Pros
I was always leary of "came on a spool". I pictured a twisted tangled mess. I decided to try it to save boxing fees and I was pleasantly surprised. No twists or tangles. Plus, I like the idea of unrolling what I need, stretch and go!
Cons
None.
