    I am anxiously awaiting some responses also. I have looked at this tool before and considered buying but didn't know how difficult it would be to use.

    I'm not one for gadgets. I like the Kaye Woods tutorial for binding. I'm glad they have the tutorial videos now.

    I'm not one for lots of gadgets either. The above tutorial is a good one and if that doesn't work for you there are numerous others on you tube and I think Missouri Quilts.

    I use the fons and porter tool. After I figured it out, I liked it, but it took a couple of tries.

    There's a binding foot for the Janome but I've never tried that. So far I just do it myself.

    I just did a search here on the QB to see if anyone has used the Bernina binding too yet because I just got one. They gave me a sheet of instructions, but I haven't tried it yet.

    I have not heard of the Binding Thingy tool, but I love it! Looks like it will be very helpful since it has all the measurements on it as well as the angles for cutting the ends. Clever idea.

    I don't have the tool, however, I finally figured out how to do the binding ends without, It took me about a year.

    Binding gadgets were made for quilters like me. Maybe it is because I am so left handed, at any rate, I just couldn't follow instructions for joining my binding, I'd rip and resew about 5 or 6 times on every quilt. Finally, I purchased The Binding Tool by TOM Products. MSQC has a tutorial on using this tool. That solved my problem. I haven't had to resew a binding since. I know, if I were smarter, I wouldn't need that tool; but it works for me and was well worth whatever it cost. I have never used the binding tool you pictured.

    Like Franc36, I use the Binding Tool. It's easy to use and understand. Jenny has a video how to use it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ex2PajesRvU I don't remember the cost either, doesn't matter.
    Got fabric?
