Many beading tools available.I want to be able to turn a small bead, say 3/8", on a pepper mill. What the time tested way to do this if I don't have a beading tool? I've looked on youtube, but all I've found are big beads.
Practice is needed with any tool.I tried doing some with a Sorby Spindlemaster. I had some success, but I got a lot of catches, including some pretty scary ones. It it just a matter of practice, or is that just the wrong tool?
I understand.As a result, I tend to put those tools aside and not try them again. The beading tools look like they'd be relatively easy to use, but I'd need to do a lot of beads to make them feel worth what they cost.
Been there, done that ...I really should practice on some scrap, but somehow I always end up trying new techniques on "real" projects and a catch not only scares the bejebees out of me, it makes a mess of the piece.
