The CRB Hand Wrapper features a dual spool tensioner and a tension rod which allows for easy reversing while building. Thread then runs to the slider which can move seamlessly along the 10" wrapping base. The wrapper also features adjustable stands mounted to the base along with a third stand for supporting the butt or tip. Finally, the hand wrapper incorporates interchangeable step by step instruction cards displaying a range of basic wrapping and advanced decorative techniques, and the basic wrapping Step by Step card is included.
