WigJig Jewelry Making Tools comparison with jewelry wire.When trying to select a jewelry making jig, one thing to compare is the size of the pieces that the jig makes.  The pieces shown at right made in brass wire were made on the WigJig Olympus or Olympus-Lite, while the pieces made in purple wire were made on the WigJig Delphi.  The peg pattern used to make these pieces is shown below left for the Olympus or Olympus-Lite and below right for the Delphi.  Three patterns are shown for the WigJig Delphi below-right.  Pattern 3 is approximately the same size as the horizontal/vertical pattern shown at left in the Olympus Lite picture below left.  Pattern 2 for the Delphi is the about the same size as the diagonal pattern for the Olympus-Lite shown on the right below.  Pattern 1 for the Delphi is smaller than any wire component that can be made on the Olympus or Olympus-Lite.

Olympus or Olympus-Lite

Delphi
 

There are two things to note in the pieces shown above.  First, it should be obvious that the jewelry making pieces made on the Olympus or Olympus-Lite are 25% larger than the same piece made on the Delphi.  Second, it should also be clear that the pieces made using the same peg pattern, but positioned on the diagonal for the same jig, are about 70% of the size of the same piece when made using a horizontal/vertical pattern.  With the Olympus, Olympus-Lite or Delphi you can make smaller wire components by using the diagonal for your peg placement. 

All three jewelry making jigs shown above have the ability to make figures with parallel pegs as shown above and the ability to make figures with angles of 45 degrees or 90 degrees. 

The general conclusion is that for smaller and more delicate shapes using parallel rows of pegs, or angles of 45 degrees or 90 degrees choose the WigJig Delphi.  For making larger and bolder components with parallel rows of pegs or angles of 45 degrees or 90 degrees choose a WigJig Olympus or Olympus-Lite.
