To clip or not to clip?

Hi all,
For those of you that roll your own cones, do you prefer to snip one edge of the lid or leave it round. Do you notice a difference in the sound of the lids when clipped?
And ouch! I neglected to put on my gloves while rolling a few the other day, and now I cant work on my beadwork, cause I cut myself right in the fold of my middle finger, and its really tender.
lesson learned.........wear gloves!

Ouch! I don't roll my own cones so I can't answer that, but that sounds REALLY painful. Hope it heals soon. The other day I cut my thumb and it about killed me to work on beadwork for a few days because I couldn't stand working with a bandaid on it!

You missed a great powwow this past weekend!

sorry to have missed the powwow - I had to work afterall, and the vans still in the shop. The finger is still sore, but getting better, I managed to string 4 beads today LOL.

Clipping part of the jingle lid before rolling helps cut down on the weight of the dress if you are putting a lot of jingles on it. Its not a requirement but it does make a difference. The cut edge gets rolled to the inside of the cone and should not show if you do it right.

Even after cutting myself a couple times out of thousands of cones, I still roll 'em without gloves. Yep, can be painful!

Thanks Czechy, I wondered if it was a weight thing, and I have been clipping the edges, I rolled one without clipping just to see the difference, and I didnt see any. I tried rolling a few with long nose needle nose pliers, and some with a metal cone roller, I like the thin look from the pliers, but, I get a bit of a square look, rather then round....with the cone roller, I like the roundness, but, they are just a bit to big for my preference, so, I am having to use to metal roller, and once rolled, having to gently squeeze the cone to get the thinner look I am preferring. So far after rolling 70 cones, I have only suffered 4 cuts LOL.

When I want a bigger cone, I leave the edge on. It's harder to cut though. It's quicker and easier to clip the edge off.

To avoid the square look when rolling with pliers, but sure to twist your pliers in the cone at the end of the "roll"...easy to do with gloves. Not impossible barehanded. Just be sure you're careful enough to avoid any burrs.

I'm not understanding what you mean, but when I did my daughter's first dress; I had to take the rims off of hundred's of copenhagen lids my brother collected for her..... I ended up with "trigger thumb" for over a year and had to have injections done for it to heal. Anyhow, I never cut any part of the rest of those lids off.

Yikes!

Be careful! Sounds like that really hurt! You're a jingle dress dancer and a fancy shawl dancer?

It didnt hurt to bad.... I am currently going through the process of going to jingle. It will be a while before I get there, but was told I could go ahead and start gathering my materials together. I probably wont start jingle until sometime next year, but want to make sure I have everything together before-hand.

I was told that some clip just a little off one edge of the lid before rolling with tin snips, I guess its a matter of preferance.
Wow, I bet that was hard work getting all the rims off, and to make them smooth as to not get cut. I hope your thumbs are much better now.
