I am just starting to work with wire. I find that aluminum wire is easy to wrap around jig pegs unlike the copper wire. However I don’t know how to get the aluminum wire hard.
Is there a technique to get it harden?
I have tried hammering it with a chase hammer like I do the copper but it’s still flexible. Is there another type of wire that can be used that is easy to wrap around the pegs like the aluminum but can still be harden when hammered like the copper?
Or is there a way to harden the aluminum wire? Thank you for your tips.
