i LOVE this thread! especially the pictures to go along with the written directions. just got my wood burner in the mail and tinkered around with it this weekend. will def need some more practice, but i can see where it's going to save me tons of time, especially when i start using it to fuse the ribbons together to make spikes. i was getting frustrated too, when they cinch up all weird and get "wonky" (love that word!). so glad my son doesn't have baseball after work today so i can go home and plug in my wood burner, hee hee! thank you!
