Farthingales Costume & Corset Supply

, of Stratford, Ontario, Canada, introduces its new Bone Tipping Tool, designed and manufactured by A.C.T. Enterprises, Inc. of Seattle, Washington. Designed for the costume shop or custom corset maker, this tool can both cut and tip metal bones used in corset making.

Put away the two pairs of pliers, the bolt cutter, the tipping fluid and all the other troublesome and painful methods you’re currently using. The simple and quick two-step process is a great time saver in the shop. Bones are cut in step one and then tipped with traditional “U” tips in step two. It’s that simple.

The Bone Tipping Tool is the first tool for costume shops that sets bone tips quickly, accurately and securely yet is easy to use and easy on your hands, saving you from more aggravation of the carpal tunnel syndrome you or your staff may already have.

The Bone Tipping Tool includes: 6mm and 10mm sets of dies to cut & tip both spiral and spring (white) steel bones, a die holder and an arbor press. It can be order from Farthingales at www.farthingales.on.ca/bone_tip_machines.html and is priced at $460.50 Canadian or about $350.00 US.
