Grommets: how to 'countersink'
Question: When replacing damaged / broken grommets how do you create that 'countersink' edge on those specific grommets that usually share a hole with both cross and main strings? Is there a special tool or does the natural pull of the string(s) manage to create that curved edge naturally?
I'm new to stringing so apoligies if my question is somewhat stupid sounding.

There is a tool called Flare-It Tennis Grommet, you can buy it from ATS sport.

not really stupid question. personally i have never done it. the ATS tool is interesting.
Victor has a heat iron in its stringing tool kit that should produce a better result. never tried it though.

So what's the "original one" that maa2003 is talking about?
I've been google-ing around and can't find anything on the Victor head iron
Where can I find one of those?
