To Join Edge Wire

Begin at the back and place the mark on the edge wire on the back spoke

at the pencil mark. Twist the end of the spoke once and a half around

the edge wire, using the jaws of the pliers to tighten the twist. Cut

the end off close and press the cut end flat with the pliers. Next

finish the center front spoke, then the sides and those in between. A

great deal depends upon accuracy in making an acceptable wire frame. Add

as many circles of wire between the edge wire and the headsize wire as

desired, fastening to the spokes with tie wire. Keep all wire laps at

the back on the center spoke.
