Use the Wire Whacker to harden your ParaWire designs without changing their shape. After placing your ParaWire designs between the two Wire Whacker boards, whack the top board with your hand or a hammer. Your wire designs will flatten, harden, retain their shape and the wire diameter won’t change. This tool is easy to handle, simple to use and works with most wire gauges. The Wire Whacker is also ideal for use with Gold, Gold-filled, Sterling Silver, Copper and most other wires.
Whack the top board with your hand or a hammer – your wire designs will flatten, harden, retain their shape and the wire diameter won’t change. You can also place your design on one plate and tap it with the other for more delicate applications.

this tool does exactly what it describes… if you use correctly. don’t be like me and look at the picture, bad mistake. i began whacking with the top board. after much whacking and the alarm saying glass break, i read the 1 easy simple instruction paragraph, i used a hammer. i work hardened 3 pieces at the same time. they were not distorted at all. that meant no endless re-tweaking to get the shape back. that was most important to me, the shape was intact; making this simple tool a big time saver.
