Does your whip finish tool fight back or the thread get stuck or fly off at that vital moment?

Then follow these 3 simple steps to tame it!

Simon Young's whip finish tool modifications1st You need to cut back the overlong tail on the sprung arm and taper the resulting stub to a fine point with either a hook hone or wet n dry paper.
2nd Bend that arm so it is nearer to a right angle to the handle,this increases the tension on the tying thread during the whip finish process.

3rd Put a fine taper on the hooked end of the main shaft using the same method as No.1


Job done! Now that was easy!
