I found an auto reed hook on the Yahoo's WeavingList Sales and it arrived yesterday. Using an instruction video on Linda's Fiber Weblog, it was easy to get the hang of it. For me, it works better on my newer reed that has thinner teeth because it catches easier on the reed's tooth as it moves. Of course, the reed I am using right now is the one with heavier teeth. I like it because you can grip is like a wooden spoon and there is less stress on my hands and fingers. The other thing I like about it is that it automatically (with a little help) moves from dent to dent so that I don't miss a dent.
