One of my biggest challenges with my candlemaking is getting a wick perfectly centered. I thought I had struck oil here, but its truly a piece of junk. The company that makes it offers to have you send it back to them to be adjusted, but the cost is yours at about half the price of the device. Truly, don't waste your money.

This is a handy tool that's fairly simple to use, and makes centering your wicks in most containers very straightforward and a lot more precise than other methods.
However, it isn't particularly well made. After a few light uses (using barely any pressure, just enough to stick the wick sticker to the container) following the recommended instructions, the crimp that keeps the magnet in place became dislodged. I did get it tamped back down and the tool has worked since, but the construction method and quality of the materials used is lacking.
I also recommend using wicking that has some stability to it, as plain braided cotton can be a little tricky to get into the tube. Mine may just have a pit or a burr on the inside that catches the wick, but I tried different, sturdier wicks and it worked much better.
All in all, a handy, inexpensive tool for light use. My order also came with free wick stickers, and the shipping was quick, which I appreciated.
