Best way to fit them, been doing this way for years, cocktail sticks are for sausages or cheese and pineapple chunksPosted 1 year ago

Needs a Viking cocktail stick funeral. Despatching him to Valhalla is the least you can do.Posted 1 year ago
Actual serious response- why cut down spokes? I tried that but it’s miles more faff with threading, and you can’t use them as easily to spin nipples off either (because they unthread). And a cocktail stick is one size fits all too
Am I missing something with how people use them?Posted 1 year ago
