Wire Rounder
This cup bur is perfect for rounding wire ends. After the ends of wire are cut with a pair of side cutters, the edges are often sharp and can cause snagging. If you are making ear wires in particular, you'll need to smooth the ends of the wire, especially the end that will pass through the ear. This tool will do that. It has teeth like a file inside the cup. Simply place the cup over the end of the wire and twist or rotate the handle back and forth to file and smooth the ends of the wire. This works best for wire up to 20 gauge.

Finally a Wire RounderMarch 30, 2016
I decided to finally break down an buy a cup bur for my wire work. I was surprised at the size of the actual cup (even though I knew it would be tiny), but when I tried using the tool, it work fine to round out the sharp edges of the wire I was cutting. I would recommend it for anyone who works occasionally with wire. For me, it was inexpensive and does the trick. I also appreciate that it came in its own case (not so easy to misplace).

Wire ROunderAugust 12, 2015
I have really tried to like this tool but it just doesn't work for me. I read another article where someone was having a hard time and they took the end piece and hooked it up to their Dremmel and now they love the rounder. I will have to try it.

Wire rounderMarch 15, 2015
I have been using the rounder and it works very well, especially for earring ends, much easier than a file

cup burMarch 4, 2015
Though I have been more than satisfied with each of the other items I ordered from Artbeads (sterling silver wire and other tools), I have found the cup bur is ineffective. I have much better success using a metal file that I purchased in a hardware store. Unfortunately, I plan to return the cup bur.

Works Really Well!May 20, 2014
I am very impressed with the difference this little tool makes in smoothing/rounding out rough wire. It takes a little bit of time to get it completely smooth, especially for ear wires, but it does the trick! Great price too. :)

Could be smallerApril 21, 2014
I feel the bur size is too large to efficiently smooth and "round" the tip of 21 or 20 gauge wire which is the size I intended to use it on for earrings.

easyNovember 2, 2013
I tried files to get rid of the sharp ends of my wire until I found this tool. It's small enough to work on earring loops and the handle is long enough that you can get a good grip on it.

bur cup for wiresSeptember 12, 2013
I have been looking for one of these for a while and was delighted when I bought this one. I is easy to use and really does file that rough wire end on your jewelry. I would like a set of them in different sizes.
Hope Artbeads starts carrying the sets. I would definitely buy one.

BWire rounderAugust 15, 2013
This just didn't work for me. The wire was still sharp after twisting at least 30 times. I creased some fine sandpaper and used that finally. It worked great!

As Violet wrote It seemed like a great tool. However, after using it, the wire seemed not that much rounder then before...
I will try again on my next silver wire project though.

Not seeing results I hoped forMarch 9, 2011
It seems like a great tool; either I am not using it properly or something, but I do not see the "roundness" that I hoped for. I have used it on wire gauge 24-20, and not so thrilled.

I will have to keep trying to see if I get better results.

great for finishing ear studsJanuary 30, 2011
I recently made several pairs of wrapped bead studs and spent too much time with a basic file getting the ends smooth. Then I found this handy little tool.

Nice toolAugust 18, 2009
This is a very handy tool for smoothing off the rough edges of wire. However, I've found that if I'm making earwires with 20g wire, I still need to use a file. But this tool starts the job nicely, getting off most of the sharp edges; then I finish up with a small file.
