So is there a good neat way of finishing cut shoe laces, that is neater than rolling them in super glue or melting the ends? Is there a widget that can do the job properly? If there isn't, the person that can invent one could be a very rich person.
Right, I'm off to the workshop
Brass and alu tubing is available from good model/engineering shops - I've got loads .Thanks for the tip; think I'll give that one a go.Abu Milhem wrote:Crimping brass/aluminium tube with a pair of side cutters is best but I rarely find this material except as scrap/salvage.
