Butt Wrap layout threads ?

Rate this topic

7 posts in this topic

What do you guys use for layout threads on a butt wrap ?

Currently I have been taking white ncp thread and taping it to the face of a ruler, then I use the back edge of a razor blade to hold the thread tight

and mark with a very fine tip pantone marker or a pencil. The marker bleeds too much for my liking and the pencil I can hardly see after I get the thread in place.

 

I'm just wondering if there is a better way.

 

Thanks

Pentel White out Pen. Costs about $2-3. Press teh tip, a dot of white out goes on teh rod. Just make sure it's not a big glob. I use this to mark the spine, to write teh name of the blank, to mark the position of the guides.

That works great, so long as you are using color preserver... I like to go naked and I got the pentel to bleed through and bubble up through the wrap mad.gif

Never again without CP!

I only did that one time, and don't think I'll ever do it again. If you lay down Nylon or NCP threads first,there won't be much, if any slippage. I cannot tell ifit's easier to pack, but I do know I don't have much of a problem.
