Customer Reviews

Great for beginners… and more! Review by Cari

I purchased the e-book and it covers everything one needs to know about beginning wire wrapping. Explanations for purchasing the right tools tools, different types of wire, wire gauges, and picking the right wire to create your project. Tutorials have step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow and understand. As a beginner to wire wrapping, I found it very informative and I will continue to use it as a reference for years to come.
