    Thanks for making these videos available on a permanent basis. They are excellent. I learn much better from seeing an actual demonistration than by book photos. The short length is ideal for when I have a few minutes here and there.

    Wonderful! I have always hated cutting chain, especially fine chain that is so hard to see. Thank you for the tip! And thank you for all of your videos.

    Hi, Love tip of the day. I have cut chain like this for a while. I keep a corsage pin on my work space and use it rather than scrap wire. It works for everything but fine chain and then I use scrap wire. Keep the good words coming.

    I have used a safety pin for years to do this. That way, if you get bumped, your chain will not fall off.

    Love the instructional videos. This one is so simple…. but never thought to do it that way. Counting takes so much longer.

    Thank you again for another great little video.

    I was unable to view this video on my iPad as it required flash player. I don’t recall this problem with your other videos. Are you using different software?

    Yes it is simple and I’ve done that for years. It’s a logical conclusion if you work in chain a lot. Like all orders that are repeated you look for easier way to your own design
