Default Re: Korker dowel rods?

I have put as many as 25 in at once...the only limit is how many dowels I have and what will fit on the piece of tinfoil I bake them on. I bake at 250 for about 25 minutes...sometimes longer when I forget to set the timer for a while. I don't need to increase the times for more pieces in there.

The only thing I do on the dowels is bake them. I do my korker stiffening/starching after I make the korker up. My dowels are still as nice as the day I bought them and I have been making korkers for almost 2 years on some of them. I did starch some satin on the dowel once and it raised the grain and made them rough so I don't use those ones anymore.
