The Magnetic Feed Rod (35cm long) is used to assist with feeding fabric into the Pleater rollers.
It is split lengthways into 2 halves. The fabric edge is placed on one half of the rod and the other half is placed on top.
The magnet holds the 2 halves together and the fabric is kept in place firmly and straight on the rod.
I have just been trialling this product with the Read 16 and it is amazing.
