No way we are saying those are junk! They are not suitable to draw wood thru. Let's talk... What is drawplate and why they are in use? A drawplate is type of die consisting of a hardened steel plate with one or more holes through which wire is drawn to make it thinner. Historically, and still, jewelers used drawplates to reduce the thickness of wire by reshaping the metal, increasing length while decreasing diameter. As such, a piece of wire will become considerably lengthened during the drawing process. The plate has rows of holes drilled through it which are slightly wider at the back (entry points).’ve always meant to pick up a draw plate fir wood, so you guys are saying the ones at model expo and micro mark are junk? Anyone have a link for one that’s good?
