Having initially nerded out over the discovery that a double tracing wheel exists and how much time it would save me, I was extremely excited to receive mine a few weeks ago. It's such a simple but time-saving idea, and makes so much sense that I don't know why they are not stocked in every haberdashery there is. The wheels can be removed and replaced into slots between 0.5cm and 3cm so it covers a lot of bases, and it's comfortable and easy to use. Admittedly, some of my friends were not nearly as excited about my discovery as I was, but when I told the rest of my costume design class, they had the same reaction, and I imagine anyone who designs, drafts or sews will share in it also. I would have preferred sharper points on the wheels as you do have to apply quite a bit of pressure if you're tracing onto white drafting paper, but I imagine it would be much more suitable when using dressmaking tracing paper.

I wish I had known about this tool earlier! The two wheels allow you to trace both your cutting line and seam line at the same time, saving much fiddling about, and helping you achieving perfect results when working on difficult curves and shapings, as well as straight lines. No more uneven distances between your cut and seam! The tool comes packed with the wheels flat. You just have to pull them out of the tool and then replace them facing the other way so you can get wheeling! (Grab the base of the wheel between forefinger and thumb - as close to the tool as possible - and pull it out. Push firmly back in as far as it will go). The tool's handle is angled and this enables you to push down on the top part (closest to the wheels) with your forefinger, to apply necessary pressure. It's comfortable to use the tool whichever way around you prefer to use it and it gives a good marking either way without damaging delicate fabrics.

A note about seam allowance. Someone else has said that it's impossible to get a 5/8 of an inch seam because it's a metric tool. Actually I usually do 1 cm seams myself, BUT you CAN very easily do the traditional British 5/8 if you so wish. Just pop the wheels in with two holes separating them (preferably toward the centre of the tool for more even pressure) and there you have it - 5/8 of an inch. Clover are too clever not to have taken that into consideration. If you haven't got exactly 5/8 you can gently push the wheels together a little to get it perfect. I'm enclosing a photo showing mine set up to 5/8.

The tool is very versatile - you can put the wheels right next to each other to get a 0.5 cm seam (¼ of an inch) for doing very delicate work such as fabric flowers or 'phone cases etc., and the widest seam possible is 3 cm (or 1 ¼ inches). Like I said, I only wish I'd had one years ago...

This is great for transferring carbon tracing of pattern markings on to fabric, as you can trace cutting line and seam stitching line at the same time (on the reverse of the fabric - for obvious reasons). The wheels are round pointed so that it will not dig into the fabric and possibly snag it. There are other tracing wheels on the market that have sharp points. These are only suitable for tracing on to tissue or other pattern pieces and can sometimes appear faint. This Clover wheel leaves distinct marks because of the rounded points which makes it easy to see where to cut and to sew. You can move the wheels at a quarter of an inch intervals up to 1 and a half inches(3 cm) to accommodate different seam widths.The tool is slightly angled for for ease and comfort and it seems robust. I am pleased to have bought it.

This does what it says and is useful, but has two drawbacks. Firstly, if you press too hard the metal stems on the wheels bend. More importantly to me, the increments between the positions are 1cm apart, so it's not possible to set it exactly at 5/8". I have overcome it by bending the stems slightly. Not what I expected. Maybe there are metric and imperial versions, but the one I had was definitely metric. If it said this on the description, I missed it.

It is great to be able to run along one line and create two line markings. And it can mark multiple widths making this tool very useful for multiple applications, from marking seam allowances to creating cord or elastic placement. It feels nice and sturdy in the hand too. Another great product from Clover.
