Step 1: Gather Your Material
You need a Handsbreadth perforated Metall-Strip and a Cubit of Wire.
Step 2: Cut the Metall Strip
To cut the Metall-Strip pinch both Sides with a Bolt-Cutter and bend fore and back until snapped off.
Step 3: Cut the Corners
Use a File to Round-Off all sharp Edges.
Don't forget the Holes.
Step 4: Cut the Wire
Cut off about a Cubit of Wire.
If you use Electrical-Wire strip off the Insulation.
Step 5: Bend in Half
Take the Ends together and bend in Half.
Leave a round Loop do not bend sharp, it would be difficult to push Strings through.
Step 6: Attatch Wire to Handle
Weave the Wire into the Metall-Strip.
Do one End at a Time and use Pliers to pull and push the Wire flat.
If desired leave the last Hole free to attach a String or hang on a Nail.
Cut the Wire in the Middle of the last Hole so the Ends don't stick out on the other Side
Step 7: Use It
Use it to pull Cord through Knots when you do Mats, Turks-Heads or similar,
to keep Twine-Balls together just pull the End through.
If you use Copper Wire you can hammer to stiffen and anneal to soften it.
