Oh My, surely there is a easier way, than what I'm doing. I don't remember my Dad having any trouble wiring the wax in. and seems like that he did it quickly. Of course, I'm just starting on it, and maybe after while, I'll catch on, but is there a certain way to do it? When I cut the wire, I'm just twisting the ends together. but I'm not getting tight wires. I bought the little Gizmo to hold the wire. That helps a little.
