The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Welt foot sizing
« on: March 23, 2018, 04:45:16 PM »
I can agree this chart Dennis recomended does have more or bigger cording selections. They also mention their material or fabric application. That application or how its put together is brought up here a bit or use to be.



This Welt Foot Set is commonly used to first make the welting by wrapping a 3/4" to 1" wide strip of fabric or vinyl or leather around 7/32" Diameter WELT.
Then this welting is inserted between two pieces of furniture or auto upholstery fabric to make the actual welted seam. 
This is the most common method of sewing welted seams in furniture or auto upholstery.
This welt foot set will also sew regular seaming operations so you do not have to put your regular feet back onto the machine.
Many upholstery shops just leave this set on their machines all the time!
The most common sizes of welting foot sets for auto upholstery & furniture welting are  3/16"  1/4"  and  5/16".
To determine your correct LISTED SIZE, add 3/32" for your four plies of fabric to the WELT SIZE. So if you are using 5/32" welting add 3/32" for a total of 8/32" or 1/4".


1/8"                                                    1/32"
3/16"                                                  3/32"
1/4"                                                    5/32"
5/16"                                                  7/32"
3/8"                                                    9/32"
1/2"                                                    13/32"

Here is a link Paul and rather than cut n paste their chart. I thought it probably has some benefit in the whole article. I know you have seen plenty in this regard so this in short order. If I run onto something real extensive this weekend it will be posted.

Good day

I was curious if it was the lines or normal wrinkles in the leather. Sometimes them natural wrinkles areas can be impossible.
But it sounds like a general seating area, and can be attributed just to rub or getting on and or off the furniture. ( i guess their polishing it ) hehehe, Oh my

I had to look back through these post for the tip answer: but its somewhere else posted.  I recall that this particular photobucket you speak of changed a bit. This was recognized by many here and several other sites I surf, in that there pic’s could not be seen on sites. It was found the membership was changing to a cost, and or raising the cost.

I agree all this is troubling, but believe me this is only but one site like this. Again I veiw many regularly that have this same somewhat new issue. To add something, I have heard the code writers and that obviously higher level computer website people might just have serious gripe with “ a lot “ of these photo transfer or hosting sites. I think this is besides the fact smart phone code is smaller/ compact in some (idk) tech writter way.

Good day

  This sounds like a nice piece, and one that needs a finish type determined.
I would need to check in a location suitable. I mean discretely if a finish type and or thinner reducer I may use has conflicts with the present finish. As you you know the drill they always mention to us.

This above method would help finding if this present finish can handle some touch up. In your question Doyle I dont really hear you just asking for a wax option for the other non scratched touch up area. As we would not want even the small scratch areas have their surrounding edge bubbled up.
Thats my start, and pictures are always great in this situation, even if some determine it abstract 😎

good day

I have found myself in the same situation many times.
So in the quick method I have just use these methods: highlight the recently typed data and then copy this to your computer somewhere. And follow with your log out or whatever and catch up with posting later.
Most times your Word program, clipboard or the notebook program.  Im sure some others can recommend their ideas.

Good to hear from you!
In that link with the video, listed lower on that page that I was refering to. Its about on the 4.00 minute mark that was of interest particularly. 
I understand this is not the same model yet its a bit similar I thought and just a shot.

Good luck

  This Consew link list an instruction manual and may shed some light on this, I believe it is similar.
On page 3 list a few tips for oil procedures, following on the next page describes the hook.

  Its here I would look to see if it compares and keep in mind any adjustments need monitored.
The typical adjustment is using a 1/8th - 1/4 turn, with monitoring. This is the critical part so I always would take a good look at the upper lubrication parts also.
  I find a lot of times oil can come ftom the top, needle bar and presser bars and this drips on the hook. Its been a good tip to keep a small absorbent cloth or towell under presser foot when your not using machine.

  We should remember many of these class machines are setup to be in a factory running at full speed. Sometimes these settings are also set for very slow running and so benefit with custom but monitored settings.
  If you notice in their video a few lubrication tips and procedures.


Good day

  I have grown much older.
It has come to my attention in a few other parts of the world certain trades have requirements.  I respectfully agree with some of these, example apprenticeship.
What Maybe unseen or unknown is this might just be strictly required “ before “ providing certain trade task.

  I hope this post reads as Experience Matters to me very much. My career was through a time when here in the U.S. these respectfull requirements were the seriously dropped requirement. This may sound hasrsh but tough its the fact!
  This change was strongly promoting college ( 4 year ) and not enough trades.  With this comment I stress many 2 year associate degrees are great.  Here is the stump speach; this basic gathered knowledge from a typical two year associate is what should be the begining apprenticeship program.
This requirement is an advantage not accessible to enough. This rating option dam well should be available in another form. Example certain testing off site and then an agreement for the employer to sign off under a set of guidelines list.
 I post this because the carrot that is used oh so Dam much in both circumstances to workers needs reassessed. Experience matters first in job evaluation.

Good day

ps: there is on this site a guild type insignia, I say to the most experienced here these insignias are older.

  I personally think and have conducted myself presently and in my history to educate my customers.
It has been proven by myself with returning customers and new recommended clients. With that I have been thankfull now and for sure in my past with companies and institutions building, maintaining and engineering infrastructure projects. These projects and or items within as equipment for example to get task done has a big impact in all levels of the company.

  This is most times as some learn if they are in the positions discussed at the extreme top with engineers and financial leaders. These positions each have their knowledge and skill levels as you should and I am sure take pride in getting to know well. I have been lucky to meet and work directly with and for many in these projects.

So I would continue to say educating the new clients is in our best interest, the art is knowing how.  To help this. We all can have our pro technical connections to refer in our phone list. Im not sure any of us have on our payroll a technical consultant and above that a certified textile person on payroll. What I have found is being able to conduct a conversation without being over bearing or a knowledge idiot when the level actually request and honestly requires being instep to the customer and more important a leaders knowledge base.

Good day and try to know your customer

Last time I used laquer paint was a 79 short bed chevy, I think it was 1987 and doing a complete with 99S from the maker dupont. I really like the stuff in my younger day. So much so that before the truck I did another complete on my 67 Camaro RS, again using dupont laquer in 86bmw red.
I can confidently swear I could read a yard stick in the finish from the opposite end, yes front to back. Color sanding folks is a serious task. btdt!!

Back to wood finish, its the quick drying and touch up ability with laquer that is nice.  Im not sure what brands can be had local but im sure several here.  Im positive the better clear qualities will be more dollars on the counter for sure. A cost is one aspect always needing to figure getting the product to the shop.

Have a Good day
