Default Re: quick Korker ?

I haven't done it myself but I've read here that someone used to make korkers with 5/8 ribbon, and used a dowel rod one size larger than she did for 3/8. You can search the threads for it. I have a hard time picturing it working very well with 7/8 or 1.5 - the rods would have to be really big to get a spiral curl. I make korkers with 3/8 (using a 1/4" diameter rod) and 1/4 (using a 3/16" diameter rod) and occaisionally 1/8 (using a bamboo kitchen skewer) myself. What rod size are you using?
