What sort of DIY Fids are folks using and for what size cord?
Since the search feature won't find results for "fid" I thought centralizing some discussion under a thread with fid in the title might help some find out more about what can be used as a fid for various sizes of cord.
Even though fids are very inexpensive, they seem to come for cord no smaller than 1/4". I've been looking at aluminum knitting needles as I think they are hollow, at least the larger sizes, the smaller ones probably are not.
I'm using the 7/64" amsteel grey and have ended up using a piece of 14 copper wire doubled over.
This seems to work well, but I'm wondering if anyone has found a better house hold appliance to use for cord that small.
