Default Heat Sealing Korkers

I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION ! ANY SUGGESTIONS OR TIPS FOR THE QUICKEST OR EASIER WAY TO SEAL ENDS WHEN MAKING A LOT OF KORKERS @ A TIME ! I AM STOPPING AFTER I PUT BOW TOGETHER & THEN END BY END DOING EACH ONE , & IT IS TAKING LONGER TO SEAL THEM THAN IT IS TO MAKE THE BOW ITSELF !

THANKS
LISA

I use my woodburner. That seems to be the fastest way for me!

Definitely the woodburner. That is my favorite thing to use it for.

Woodburner is great. I have also used fray check. I cut all my korkers to length and then just sit on the sofa and seal each end while watching tv. I will usually do a whole bunch at one time so they are ready to go when the mood hits.

You can always go back and snip the end if you need to after the bow is all put together. Sometimes you might have a straggler that needs it.

I use both woodburner and a pillar candle. I like using my woodburner normally for my larger longer krokers and a candle for my smaller ones.

I hope this helps. Keep trying.

For those of you that use the woodburner to seal the ends, is there a easy way to cut a bunch at once? Right now I use the rotary cuter to cut multiply korkers and then seal each one at a time...takes forever!!!
