Choose a wire form. We chose a Wig Jig wire form.
Place the wire form on the bench block.
Hold the wire form down with your finger. If you do not feel comfortable holding the wire form with your finger, you may place a small piece of tape along the edge to keep it in place.
Hammer one half of your wire form away from your finger or tape.
Move your finger or tape to the other end of the wire form.
Hammer the remaining half of your wire form.
Flattening the wire form has lengthened and slightly changed the look of the wire form.
Using chain nose pliers squeeze the wire closer together to get the form back to its original look.
Congratulations! You have now flattened a wire form.
