280445 - Draw Plate Italian - Round
Reduce and shape thickness of brass, copper, gold, silver, platinum or soft steel wire. Made of thick, high-grade tool steel, carefully stamped with style identifying letter and hole sizes. The holes are progressively smaller, in proper increments, so that wire drawn from a preceding hole will go through the next hole easily. Occasional annealing will keep wire soft, and bees wax can be used as a lubricant. Tubes can also be formed from flat sheet metal.
