What’s a clapper

Judy asked “What’s a clapper?”

Threads posted a great article titled Five Must-Have Sewing Tools.  Point presser/clapper  is number five on the list.  The article explains how to use it and provides pictures.  I wish I’d know about this tool years ago.

This tool call also be called a tailor’s clapper (read the last to paragraphs), combination clapper and point turner (scroll down to find the reference).

Here’s a good picture from sews.com where you can order your own clapper.   Nancy’s Notions sales a tailor board & pad that I might get instead.
