Re: Kelley wired wax foundation with ears...bent correctly?...no bowing out to the si
For my deeps I've used Kelley crimp wired foundation for a long time. Got a "special" deal on some other foundation, big mistake! Kelley's is great. The wire hooks work fine - just be sure the wedge is nailed down tight, and you cross wire. I've used 4 wires, also 3, and don't see much difference. Don't forget to install the brass eyelets in the end bars, so the wire stays tight. You'd be wise to build or buy the "foundation device for deep and shallow frames." It makes melting in the wire much easier. Don't waste your money on the "Deluxe eyelet insertion tool", never worked for me. Use the one eyelet at a time, and do it while watching football... (did 12,000 that way last year....sigh....occupational therapy, I call it.) And to melt the wire in to the foundation, you can either build or buy the electric embedder and the transformer. I bought them, melting in the wires goes quickly.
Oh, and some folks are tempted to use the support pins as an easier way. Tried that, waste of time and money. Do it right the first time.
