You can use the wire crimper to re-use old frames. If you find that the wire is loose once you have taken the old comb off the frames, you can tighten the wire by gripping it between the two crimping wheels and drawing it along the wire. The frames will then be ready for new foundation.
This wire crimper is made by Quarti Italy.
Solid plastic handle that locks on and off the wire
Durable metal wheel with deep grooves
The lightweight plastic handle makes this wire crimper a cheaper option, but the wheels and construction are top-quality.
Our Quarti wire crimpers currently come with red handles.
