Tying Tip: Thread Control

If you’re like me, your thread and wire spools are a mess. The tag ends are loose and you are too lazy to wrap them tightly, find that little groove in the spool and insert the thread for next time. Maybe not.

Well I stumbled upon a site that has one solution to this challenge. Basically, he recommends using a segment of a plastic document ring binder cut off with scissors and wrapped around the spool. You can read more here.

I use a super cheap method that kinda works. You can buy a bunch of elastic hair bands for cheap. I simply wrap them around my spools a few times and it works pretty well. No cutting or figuring out what binder size to buy for various spool widths.

Hope that helps some of yinz. ~Drifter07
