BASKETRY: Tools

BASKET SHEAR
Made for garden and household use, excellent for basketry. Probably the best clipper, if you’re going to have just one. Fine enough for trimming, sturdy enough to cut heavy stock.
FLUSH CLIPPER
Precision ground blades and return spring. The perfect tool for clipping off round reed as close as you need to.
HIPPO CLAMPS
Tight-gripping, spring loaded, with plastic-covered handles. We have two sizes. The smaller ones (2" long) have plastic-coated jaws. The larger ones (3¼" long) have bare metal jaws. Both sizes are now sold individually
REED GAUGE
A clear plastic template. Use the row of round holes to check the size of round reed from #0 to #17. There are also 8 rectangular notches for measuring flat reed widths.
SPOKE WEIGHT
A heavy (22 oz) painted steel ruler, 16" long, calibrated out from the center. Useful for holding work in place, as well as for measuring.
PLASTIC SELF-LOCKING TIES
Usually called "cable-ties". For basketmaking, use to hold rim pieces in place during lashing.
ROUND NOSE PLIERS
Economy model. Box joint construction with spring. Use to fracture round reed fibers before bending.

TRIMMER SHEAR

Light-weight, small snipper, useful for trimming off reed hairs.
