Damn Ed, just use some naval jelly to get the rust off and you are good to go!


Bragging? Yeah, I'm really proud of those snips. So proud, I had to dig them out from the bottom of my junk drawer.

Did you just ask me to put jelly on my navel?

Very Nice... I wish I would have seen this before I got mine. I'm guessing I could rig a bodkin on there easily enough though.

Nope. There would be pie implications there.

Its quite easy. Get yourself a darning needle. They are not sharp pointed. This is important because you dont want to impale yourself. Select the right size drill bit, and put a whole in the scissors. Then slide the needle in and super glue it. Let it dry. Then bend the needle up. This is important because it will get it out of the way of many cutting jobs.

Those look like a great tool. Anybody have a good source to buy these at a low cost? All i seem to find are knock-offs in the craft store at this time.

Wiss is a craft/sewing scissor. A while back I saw them on Amazon for about $10. HA's point about them being bulky to hold with a bobbin is worth keeping in mind. FWIW, I think the sixth finger scissors are a much better option at about $25. I rarely need a bodkin that close at hand, and for a lot of what I would do with a bodkin I just close the scissors and use the point.

Remember that the s&m bobbins are bulky. Much more bulky then a an open bobbin. My hands have no problem holding the wiss scissors and bobbin at the same time. Its all tier preference.
