I'd like to ask a related question. How are people sharpening these
wires? I keep borrowing an apparatus from someone down the hall, which
incoporates a direct current power source, eletrical connections to the
tungsten wire, and to a ground, and a saturated sodium nitrate (I think)
solution as the corrosive buffer. But I find that to be so inconvenient.
Is there a better way?
