    Default SwissCDC Multiloop Tool - anyone try this?

    I received an ad email from Angler's All today with a link to their site for a "SwissCDC Multiloop Tool". I had to investigate... From the photo, I really could not figure how it was to be used, but after watching the video at the bottom of the page, I was impressed at the simplicity and utility of this tool for making dubbing loops a little easier. The price is impressive too! Has anyone here tried to use this?

    I use a battery powered baby formula mixer to spin my loops; set me back $5 and I’ve had to change the batteries once in the past 10 years. I do like the material clip, and use the similar Petitjean ones; at the time (1996) I considered it a splurge at $20 but I’ve used them enough over the years that I consider that a decent return on investment.

    I have a dubbing twister that works for me. Also use dubbing brushes.
    Scott Norby makes a little table that fits on many vices to make dubbing loops.

    Those dubbing twisters look nice, but they don't address the issue that this Swiss tool tries to solve, controlling the loop for dubbing insertion before the twisting starts. This is where I often have some frustration getting material into the loop and then closing the loop before starting the spin. The video shows how those slots and holes in the Swiss tool can be used to smoothly control the loop opening. I can't see paying the asking price for this tool, but I may try to make one to see if it makes loop control any easier.
