Thread Zap II
Lisa swears by this thread burner! Never deal with frayed ends again - check out the simple instructions for this handy tool:
To use ThreadZap II: Simply press and hold the black button located on the side to activate the heating element at the tip. You will usually see a slight wisp of smoke to indicate that the tip is hot enough to use. Continuing to hold the button, briefly touch the tip to the place on the thread where you want to cut, melt, or burn it. Once you achieve the desired result, allow a few seconds for the thread to cool before you touch any beads in that area.
