I am told you can get different size tips for the machines now. The original had only one size available.
There is a video here:
I have four different sizes for mine
this is the one I have
Thats good price....
i also make bias but set the iron on "no steam" it really helps with the fingers. after you iron, come back and give it steam if it is not creased enough. no burned fingers. Betty
OMG......I have never heard of an electric bias tape maker!!!! Enlighten me too ladies!
the bias tape maker works wonderfully and save lots of time and fingers, one of the best purchases I ever made
mine is the simplicity, electric, spits out bias like crazy
Now you've made me want to try mine!!!
oh do try it Meg, you will love it and save loads of time
Yes, but you still have to fold it and iron it to make it double folded. My idea is to use the smaller tip to hold the double folded tape in position while you iron it so your fingers aren't near the iron.? Jan
So you could do the same with your electric one with a smaller tip. Jan
Can you show us your tube? Very interesting!
I also grumble about scalded fingers..LOL..but I have a normal Bias Maker.
I called it a tube, couldn't think of the right term but yours are what I mean. Jan
Tips are what they're called on the Simplicity Bias maker machine. Jan
Thanks for explaining, I was imagining something like empty thread tubes Ha ha..
