Description: This manual for making jewellery has die-cut pages that split the book into two separate halves, so that the reader can refer to the techniques section whilst working on one of the featured projects. It also includes a glossary of terms and a section on health and safety.
Files need to be cleaned occasionally. Allowing the file teeth to become clogged or collect metal chips, greatly reduces file efficiency. In addition, trapped metal may scratch the work surface. To clean, hold the file by the handle with the tip resting on the bench pin. Then, brush diagonally across the file with a file card (a stiff wire brush with short bristles).
