foil burnisher

Burnishing the foil on the front and back of the glass pieces is desirable for a smooth track for the solder to adhere to. It is not necessary to burnish with such energy as to attempt to form a molecular bond between the copper foil and glass. Simply smoothing out the wrinkles will suffice.
