    9EE67637-38BC-4046-96F4-2B19F0750EBA.jpeg Is there a tool that can pass thru the center of a coil, grab the wicking, and pull it thru the coil making re-wicks an cinch. It would have to be tiny, like 2mm diameter and like four inches long. A head like this pic when retracted will grab the rayon but these are all too big. Is there something like this or similar to help thread the wicking?

    Google, sewing needle threading tool.

    Wondering if you could rough up the head of a pin, get the wick started, and finish by pulling thru with pin?

    Once you get the tip in the hole the rest slides in real easy. I use my fingers too.

    Fold a snip of wire in half and pull through cotton with it.

    Yea I use tweezers Im just looking for something easier. My hand gets shaky and it can get frustrating when I get it started and my uneasy hand knocks it out. Letitia’s snip of wire trick seems like it may help me out. I’ll give that a try next time. Thank you all for your suggestions.

    Same thing happens to me with my MS on bad days.
    I like the sewing needle threader idea or piece of wire.
