Yes No   Mark, I wish you would produce another article for us EVERY DAY ! I never cease to be amazed at the depth of your knowledge as well as you ability to translate this into things with such wide applicability for those who do not have industrial machines and resources. Your ability to write clearly and educate the reader is also not to be denied. As anyone who knows my profile will tell you, I rarely sew corsets per se, but use the techniques I learn here on other garments (including bras, slips, and outerwear) Keep up the good work, and thank you very much..

Yes No   I love the idea about making your own cording needle! While I haven't made one for myself, I've found that long (as in several, several inches long), wide eyed upholstery needles can easily accommodate the thick yarns in the same way.

Yes No   I thought of this possibility of using the extremely long (I am talking about 8 to 10 inches long) upholstery needles for this purpose. Mark, do you think this length of 8 to 10 inches is insufficient ? You perhaps have the experience to know that a certain minimum length of needle is most easily used.

Yes No   The heat shrink tubing has been *amazing* and a wonderful tip. Tipping fluid always gave me intense migraines. I've also found it works wonderful on spring steels too.
