Cheap hot tacker

1 post in this topic

Ordinary spiral-bound notebooks have springs which can be cut to size and which fit the Weller 25W soldering pencil barrel nicely. You can get two springs from a single notebook binding spiral. If you feed power to the pencil through a 120VAC dimmer switch, you can even control the temperature.

Hot tacking ripstop nylon before sewing makes handling it a cinch. No more trying to juggle slippery panels as you feed fabric to the sewing machine. Once you've experienced it, you'll find that it's the way to go.
