About the Wood Handled Slotted Paper Bead Rollers
Made of stainless steel, the slotted winding pin in these paper bead rollers are 1¼" long which will enable you to make beads up to 1¼" long comfortably! You can use these beads in jewelry or crafts. You are only limited to your imagination to what paper beads you can make with these slotted winding pin paper bead rollers.
The winding pins are a tube with an open slot down one side of the pin. You may have seen other paper bead rollers on the internet with this same type of pin. I decided to offer them as well so you have a choice. I am unable to get the special slotted pins longer than what I have available here so if you want the long paper bead rollers, you will need to order the adjustable split pin paper bead rollers Here.
The wood handles are made in a wood turning mill located just 23 miles south of my home so I am able to drive there to get them! The handles are made with solid birch wood, from Maine, within a 125 mile radius of the wood turning mill and stained a golden oak color. I order the handles in batches of 2000 pieces. The lightness of the stain varies from batch to batch and I do try to match the handles as close as possible but I am not always able to get them to match exactly.
Handle Improvements Coming Soon!Starting in April or May 2018, the wood paper bead rollers will be a little different. Up until recently, the handles I have been ordering have just been dowels that were cut, sanded and stained to the specifications I wanted. They were not turned on a lathe and hundreds of them had defects that rendered them unsuitable for the best quality roller I can make. Drilling the hole centered on one end has been a challenge that has been driving myself and my husband crazy. So at the End of November 2017, I made the desicion to pay more to get the handles actually turned, on a lathe, so I can make sure I get a perfectly centered pilot hole in the center of the end of my handles. Now the new handles will have a 6 point spur marks on one end and pin hole on the other. Since there is going to be a 6 point spur at one end, I will be no longer stamping the number on the end of the handle, instead I will be installing a special numbered bead in one end and the end that has the spur will be the end where the winding pin will be inserted into the handle. I will also be updating the instruction sheets that come with the paper bead rollers to include the size in milimeters for the size of the hole each roller makes.
You will find little numbers on the bottom of each wooden handled paper bead roller. They are numbered from 1 to 5. 1 Being the smallest 5/64" winding pin and 5 being the largest, 3/16" winding pin. That way you can tell them apart more easily.
