Tiemco scissors from £14.96 www.fullingmill.com

TIEMCO scissors are made to an exceptionally high standard and stay sharper for longer, so you can be sure of precise cutting work at the tying bench. Among their new scissor range are three pairs that caught my eye.

The Tiemco Deer Dresser fluoride scissors (£14.96) are made from stainless steel, and have been given a matt black finish. The blades on these scissors have a unique fluoride finish that prevents glue and varnish from sticking to them.

Preventing this build up helps to keep the cutting edge nice and clean. The blades have a one-inch long cutting edge and the tips are extremely fine. They sit comfortably in the hand and the moulded plastic finger loops make them very easy to operate.

Perfect for medium to fine work with threads and feather fibre while the back edge of the blades can be used on harder materials. Moving up in the price are the Tiemco Razor standard scissors (£39.95), again made from quality stainless steel but this time with a natural finish.

The cutting blades are 1.25 inches long and are razor sharp. The tips are incredibly fine and Tiemco point out that extreme care should be taken not to drop these scissors otherwise the tips will bend or break, rendering the scissors useless with a best rimfire scope.

There is a tensioner screw in the middle so the tension between the blades can be adjusted, and between the finger loops there is a rubber stopper so they don’t clash together. These scissors just slice through feather fibre and fur and the precise tips are perfect for trimming away tiny fibres. Look after them and they will last a lifetime.

The third pair on the review are the Tiemco Razor scissors (£45.95) with tungsten carbide blades which offer greater durability and will stay sharp for longer. The blades are the same length as the standard Razor scissors and have a natural finish while the handles have been given a matt black coating. Again, excellent cutting performance.

How to String a Bass Guitar

Hi, this is Shenasaee from Summerhays Music in Murray, Utah. We're talking about the Bass guitar today. And one of the topics is how to re-string a Bass. The correct way to do that. So I'm going to demonstrate how to do that. There's a lot of wrong ways out there.

But there is a few right ways to do it too. But the main thing is, you don't want to ever do anything that's going to damage your Bass or anything like that. It's usually not a good idea to take all of the strings off, at once. That can do things that can damage the neck. So what you do is, you just do one at a time. So here I've got a Bass that has the low E string taken off. And I'm just going to show you how to put it on.

So the first step is just to feed the string through the designated holes down here, at the bridge. Now some Basses have the, have the holes in the back of the Bass. And that's just you know, put the strings through the body. But if it's a bridge like this, there's just a hole right here for you to feed the string.

And then, once you do that. Just pull the string all the way through. And make sure that everything is in the right spot. And that this is going over where it's supposed to come over the saddle. Now this is called the saddle, right in here. So once you do that, then we move up to the other end of the Bass. Once we're here, we want to have the right length of string. Because if not, you're going to end up with a ton of wrapping. Which can be, which can affect the intonation of the Bass. And it can also make the string pop off of the tuner. So good rule of thumb, is to extend, pull the string all the way tight. And just extend it all the way.

And just make sure that you have a good four or five inches beyond the tuning peg. That you're going to be wrapping in it. So just make sure that you have enough to warp at least a couple times. You don't want it to be too long. But you don't want it to be too short. So the first step is just to stick the end of the string.

Well, first of all, you want to cut the string. With just some good wire cutters, to the right length that you want it. So you want to take the end of the string. And be careful because they're very sharp on the end. And just stick it down into the hole that's in the middle of this tuning machine. There's a hole that goes straight down. So stick it down there, first. Don't wrap it first. Stick it down there, first. And then, all you need to do, is bring it off. And putsome creases in the string. And just wrap it once or twice. And you want ti to come off on the inside of the Bass. Not come off on the outside. Because that way, you want it to be able to turn the right way.

So wrap the string once or twice, clockwise. And then, push the string down. So that you're pressing it against the, the headstock here. And feed it through where it's supposed to go. And then just start winding. You'll want to keep some downward pressure on this string. And push it down. So that it doesn't come out or anything like that. And also you want it. So that it's winding down, towards the Bass.

Not winding from the bottom, up. So just wind it up. Kind of, making sure that you're staying in right position. Making sure that down at the saddle, it's staying where it needs to be. And once you get it tight enough.

And bring the, bring the string up to pitch. And you want to put some tension on it. It doesn't necessarily have to be all the way tight, all the way to pitch. But you just put some tension on it before you start on the next string.
