The Ultra Thread Zap will trim, burn, or melt thread with one touch. It heats instantly with the push of a button and the extra-fine tip allows for precision application, making it ideal for finishing beadweaving & stringing projects. What makes the Ultra Thread Zap special is a retractable tip for added safety, a more ergonomic and compact design for greater comfort, and it includes an extra tip which stores in the battery compartment! Battery-operated (two AAA required, not included).
Please Note: One spare tip comes with the Ultra. Beadsmith is promising to add a packet of replacement tips by August 2015. The Ultra does NOT use the Thread Zap II replacement tips.
