Re: [BKARTS] Gauze... I'm stupid????

Just remember to do it in a finishing press with nails on the side or similar. Note, this will define the cords much more crisply than the Ace Bandage or Velcro. Also neither option precludes the use of band sticks <http://jeffpeachey.wordpress.com/knife-catalog/>, about 2//3rds down, or band nippers <http://apps.webcreate.com/ecom/catalog/product_specific.cfm?ClientID=15&ProductID=23931>. The more tools one has the better, especially if they're good.


What a neat idea. I am doing a lot of raised bands recently, and these suggestions are really helpful.

For raised cords nothing is better than cord pulled tight across the spine next to the raised cords. After that, I really like Bill's Velcro because it is just soooooo easy to check to see how things are going... No need to unwrap the whole thing. Just lift and put back down.
