Item details

I make all my fids between eight and nine inches long and about one and one quarter inch in diameter. These are made of white bubinga, not as hard as oak but just as tough. You should see the way the grain flashes in the light.

They are finished in a light oil/varnish. The listing does not include the whipping cord.

Fids are used in rope working to open the lay of the line for splicing and decorative work. They are also very effective in opening up a nasty knot.

A seam rubber is used to crease the seam allowance of a raw edge of sail fabric. Very traditional indeed. The far end of the sail edge it attached to a fixed point and the edge to be creased is set across a hard, flat surface or your thigh. The edge is folded over and the rubber is used to make the crease.

You can see that if you're using your thigh, an electric iron might not be the best choice!

The listing does not include the whipping cord.

I have to put this in caps: PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU PAY. THE $100.00 SHIPPING PRICE IS NOT THE REAL PRICE!

Shipping from Canada requires me to calculate the cost for each item based on it's size, weight, and where it's going. I'll work it out for you and let you know the final cost.
