Recently, while working on turning a narrow belt, I was looking aroung my sewing room for something long enough and thin enough to get into the corners. I found a small wooden dowel rod & decided to give it a try. I slightly sharpened one of the ends with a pencil sharpener & worked great!

That brought back memories. My mom used a drumstick that came with a drumset that I or one of my siblings (don't remember which) had received as a gift. I remember her turningbelts and such....i still have that drumstick in my collection of sewing paraphenalia.
