As a model hobbyist where do you go when you need to know how to apply a decal, the best way to install a DCC system for your model train set or how to keep your model plane from crashing (that one’s for my Dad)?
Kevlar® , a high strength aramid fiber is used for many purposes but one in particular is to provide protection to the optical fiber portion of fiber optic cables. Because this material is so strong, and abrasive, it is very difficult to cut and will dull the edges of a traditional scissors or wire cutter very quickly.
Exhibiting at the Bead & Button Show was an eye opening experience in so many ways. Not the least of which was learning what kinds of challenges face beader weavers when trying to cut Fireline®. Fireline® is a braided, high strength fiber and if you’ve ever tried to cut it you will understand the frustration — it looks innocent enough, but it is abrasive and will dull the edges of a traditional scissor in no time.
The Bead & Button show has been on my “wish list” for years. I’ve wanted to be there as an exhibitor, or at very least to walk the show so I could see for myself what it is all about. This is a trade show with a waiting list for exhibitors — unheard of in this day and age. Bead and Button also claims to be the largest consumer bead show in the world. What’s not to be curious about?
Anyone who uses tools knows how important it is to have the correct tool for job — and this can mean that occasionally tools have to be customized to meet the needs of the application.
