After almost giving up on korking the ribbon, I had to give the drill another try, and I am glad i did. I had a lot of ribbon to kork ??? and there was no way i would have been able to do it all by hand. So I got my drill and gave it another try. After about the fifth(out of about 200) dowel I was able to get it just right and fast. And best of all no pain on my hands... So I would so recomend the drill for this task. Just practice a few times, and you can do it too. Thank you to whom ever came up with this.
