I learned how to hand finish, but doing it with the tool is faster and it only cost me 2 bucks off Ebay.

I put some extra packing in the form of paper towels in the slots that were holding the flies because I dropped the box and one of the peacock hurls on one of the flies broke. Should be ok now and can't wait to see what comes back. Thanks for starting this thread, I feel like I learned a lot and became a better fly maker.
