The Bookbinding Tool Kit from Lineco offers tools essential for cleaning, repair, and the conservation of older books. Beginner bookbinders and craft makers benefit from this kit because the essential tools have been chosen for this type of application.
Light- and heavy-duty awls punch fine-point holes, which allow the 100% linen thread to pass through and bind the pages together. Next, using the bookbinding needles and applying the beeswax to the thread makes it easy to pass the thread through the holes when binding the pages together. The 6" bone paper folder is used to crease or fold the paper, and the 1/2" glue brush is used for adhesive applications.
