Wax Twins


Recommended Posts

I can send you a couple if you're stuck Paul. 

I would love a couple to be honest. I've got 2 pairs of re-welts to do that I've been sat on for ages while wondering who to get wax twins from.

 

I'll PM you my address. I don't mind what you want to do regarding payment, send a bill and i'll pay you up front, send it with the thread and i'll send it by return or i'll make a donation to the charity. whatever suits you.

 

Thanks for your help.

Don't want payment...........I'm not here to gain from forum members......We are here to help each other...........As a side note on wax twins the fraying of the metal bristles has always been an issue........Earlier because of this topic I tried something..............I heated up the end of the bristle with a lighter and applied some multicore solder..........It seemed to seal the ends......Don't know if it will help or not........Also have a look at this for my mate elfmans tips.......

Interesting read, that is worth remembering.

Wax twins were always a pain. I used to use waxed thread and flexible needles. Does anyone remember them? You could bend them any which way. Unfortunately they vanished when I was on holiday and have never been able to replace them. Does anyone know where you can get them these days?
