Easy cleaning of your bodkin

Varnish, silicone and epoxy can bee tough to get off your dubbing needle or bodkin. This little gadget will make it much easier.

Take an empty film canister and punch a small hole in the lid - just large enough fo the needle to pass through. Fill the canister with fine steel wool and replace the cap.

Now you can insert the bodkin into the hole, press it through the steel wool and spin it a bit and it will be clean and ready to work with again.
