Default Re: Korker dowel rods?

I put about 12-20 in oven 275 for 20 minutes, let cool completely, use my wood burner to cut while still on dowel, then spray with starch, let sit overnight, and then sew the next day...or when I get around to it. I've found this method works for me and saves me a lot of time cutting on the dowel verses off. I've used the same dowels about 10 times, but yeah, they are getting brittle. HTH
