Default Re: Setting Snaps in FOE?

If you decide to use KAM-type snaps... first melt a pilot hole in the FOE with the very tip of your wood burner. Just make sure the FOE fiber is synthetic.

Lay the wood burner on its stand and gently push the FOE against the tip -- VERY gently. Let the heat do all the work. Then pull it away; it just takes a moment.
