I wire all my frames and use my own wax foundation. I placed an order with Dadant several weeks back and purchased their wire crimper.
I went to use it today. Before I embed new foundation, it's good to crimp the wires so they are nice and taut. I'm sorry, but this crimper is worthless. The wheels won't hardly turn. They just slide along the wire. It's a lousy design. Anyone know where to get a good one? Don't want any plastic in it.
