A Must Have
I can't believe I went without one of these for so long. If you are beading, you need one of these. Really!

This is a wonderful gadget!
I've used this now several times for my kumihimo beading with nylon thread and I just love it. The ends of the threads can be "melted" together with the zapper. Now I won't bother doing my beading without it. A MUST HAVE for me now.

Makes life easier
This was the first time I tried a thread burner and I was amazed how well and effective it works. It saved me a lot of time with my kumihimo beading with finishing the ends prior to placing on the clasps. I would certainly purchase again.

Good tool, but be careful!
This is a very good tool, I use it a lot. But I must warn you about a couple of things:
1. Do not put the tip anywhere near a pearl, at least not the faux ones. I did, and the pearl got a nasty burn mark.
2. I strongly advise you to remove the battery whenever the tool is not in use. If you push the cap all the way down onto the tool, the button gets pressed down enough for the tip to heat. I now have a melted hole in the cap and a burn mark on the table.
This said, I do recommend this tool:-)

Don't know how I made do without this!!!
I love this when making jewelry as it lets you get very close to the beads to cut the excess off, and you can hide it easy. I love the fact that it can burn the ends of cording to keep it from fraying. I love this, wish I had spent the $15.00 YEARS ago. This will be a present I will give to my friends!

Very Poor Performance
Takes a looonnnnggggg time to heat up and doesn't get very hot even then. Changed battery twice but no difference in performance. Needs more power.

Would not return to purchase this produc
When I tried to use did not work, was a lost purchase

A Must-Have tool
Definitely a must-have tool if you use Fireline to weave seed bead jewelry. So much better to use than scissors when ending threads. Gives me peace-of-mind knowing that the threads are cauterized and secure. I'm very happy that I invested in this handy tool.

My new favorite tool.
I use this product to finish all my beading projects. It burns the thread; but does not stain neither thread nor the beads. This is the perfect tool. It is light weight. It is sold at a reasonable price. This my new favorite tool and I highly recommend it. Thanks Beadaholique for providing this product.

What did I do before Thread Zap?
Love this! Seriously, I don't know how I lived without this product!
Review by Holly / (Posted on 5/29/2012)
the best purchase
I use this on all my thread beading projects this is the best tool I ever purchased. Before I try to get the flush cutters and it wouldnt but some of the thread or it would leave fray behind. Now I burn off the excess and its close and neat. I love it!!!
