Default Re: Bobbins and bobbin threaders

I have a supply of steel recorder wire I picked up at a yard sale. It's very fine but very stiff. I spooled a bit onto an old thread spool and that wire needs a threader for sure. If you try to pull this wire straight with your fingers, you'll get cut.
My threaders are both home made from old guitar strings. One has a dowel handle the other has a big red plastic bead. Handles and wire connected with JB Weld.
I also have a cheap steel tube bobbin that I "fixed" by JB-ing a glass bead into the end. Imposible to suck start. Have to use a threader.
