Video: Using a Whip-Finish Tool to Cut Thread

Written by: Phil Monahan

I’ve been bugging Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions to make this video ever since I saw his super-cool method for cutting thread in one of his killer tying videos. If you’re a regular viewer of Tim’s videos, you know that he prizes simplicity and efficiency at the vise. This modification of a standard whip-finish tool is ingenious, and Tim walks you through the steps to make it happen in his usual clear step-by-step process.
