Seam Rippers

I got these home brew blanks in a trade with PenMan1 at IAP. Awesome colors and depth.

Okay Dick, talk to me about these...

My most favoritest wife is a quilter, as are a pant-load of her gal-pals, and I would be the ultimate trophy husband if'n I passed some of these out at the next gaggle...

Is there a kit available for these..?

Thanks bunches!

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Go to your local sewing center and buy some Dritz seam rippers, about $1.50 each. Drill a 25/64" hole in the blank 2 1/4" deep. I turn them using a Jr Gent 2 lower closed end mandrel.
