Default Re: Cutting Korkers With Wood Burner?

I cut mine with my wood burner on an angle. I bought my wood burner probably 2 months ago but was scared of it and just tried it a couple weeks ago. I love it! But it did burn myself pretty good the first few times cutting korkers with it. My korkers usually spring back just fine after straightening them to cut. I'm not sure what to suggest for that. Hopefully someone else does. I usually cook my korkers for a good 35-40 minutes but maybe that's just my oven. I like a tighter curl. I also spray them with hairspray before taking them off of the dowels. I know some people spray them with starch before cooking them. I dunno just some thoughts. Good luck!
