Mid-Week Mutterings - Wubbers Tools

Wubbers. Got two pair with the gift certificate I won in the Rings & Things June/July Review a Product contest last month. I love the handles, they're very cushy, the length and shape of them is also quite comfortable.

I haven't used them enough yet to say how well they do - the primary selling point of Wubbers is the hand finishing to prevent marring of wire or jump rings. I am particularly interested in seeing how they do with colored wire, as nicks in that tend to reveal the color of the base wire beneath the finish. I have a flat nosed pair - something I've been doing without so far, but have wanted, and a bent nose pair.

Once I've used them for awhile, I'll talk more about them and how well they do. If you've used Wubbers, feel free to comment about them here!

I'm glad it's Wednesday - just a couple days to go before the long weekend! Come back tomorrow for a review of a very special book by one of my favorite people in the Beadosphere.

You should post a picture of them. I'm curious about what they look like.

Ok, so I had to look them up. They look super comfortable. I wonder if they'd be nice on your hands with lots of jump ring and wire work.

I didn't want to use a picture from their site without permission and I do my posts in the evening, so I didn't have the chance to ask. From my limited use, I think they'd be very comfy to use in chainmaille and wire-work. Planning to buy a few more soon and work up a review.

Hi, Dawno, feel free to use an image from our site -- I know you'll credit it :)

Thanks for checking out the Wubbers, I'm curious to get the straight poop from you about them!

thanks Dave! I'll add them tonite with all due credit, plus use them when I do a review next week (plan to do some heavy duty Wubbering over the long weekend - if the temps don't soar!)

good tools are a must - i havn't used these but the ones i have i wouldnt' trade for anything. i was amazed when i spent just a little bit more on tools how much easier, and faster my designs churned out. so much nicer on the hands.

can't wait to hear about them
