The tailor uses a wheel pricker (approx. 20 cm) to transfer the lines of the pattern to the fabric, the painter to transfer the lines of a stencil. The tool has a toothed wheel (approx. 2 cm in diameter) that sits in a U-shaped bracket at the end of a metal shaft; the shaft sticks with a tang in a wooden handle, sometimes wheels with different teeth can be attached to the bracket. The wheel pricker for fabric is exceptionally foldable: the wheel then disappears into a metal handle.
