I have a problem with my hands so I sympathise with your mom - it's lovely that you are trying to help.

This video might help (by The Answer Lady): (copy & paste link)

starting ribbing on the main bed and hanging the cast on comb without removing the wire.wmv

I've attached a word doc showing how it was done (for reference after watching the video) - I hope it helps.

I couldn't find a way to add a document to someone else's post - hence this 'new one' - hope you find it OK.

You can use Bulldog clips to hold the comb while you insert the wire.

I agree with jackdigger. A method I sometimes use. Those bulldogs are very handy.
