Wire tensioning

Flexible wires must be under tension for mechanical stability. Generally, a tension of 100 kg force is appropriate.

Pearl
While tensioning the second wire, the tension in the first may decrease due to ring deformation. Both wires should be retensioned to obtain better stability. If two tensioning devices are available, they can be used simultaneously to ensure equal tension in the two wires.
