The Business Of Upholstery / New fancy nail gun
« on: December 04, 2017, 09:57:22 PM »
The new brass nail gun.
  I haven't mentioned it here but Denis got me going on this and I bought one too. It is a great addition to the tool cabinet. I've only done one job with it so far but that one was a breeze. No pain in the fingers holding the nails. It worked fine close to finish wood. And even taking the time to load the board thingy it saved some time. Well worth the 200 bucks. And it runs on like 75-80 lbs. Just a shot when you pull the trigger so it works on all our compressors.

The Business Of Upholstery / hot knives
« on: August 22, 2017, 04:56:29 AM »
So how do all you that use hot knives do it. Do you use a yard stick under the cut, a sheet of something to protect the table? What tricks can you put into words? I just ordered a knife. Tired of all the fraying.

The Business Of Upholstery / Narrow crown gun
« on: July 12, 2017, 08:17:26 PM »
I don't know if I have brought this up before but I'm going to again anyway. I have searched for a narrow crown staple gun for a long time. I have one from Harbor Freight but it uses 18 gauge staples. They may as well be nails. Way to thick. While stripping some bar stools for the past week or so I see the 22 gauge narrow crowns and it makes me want to find them. This is to staple on vinyl double welt. I am using my standard guns and coloring the staples but these are so much better being narrow crown. Do ANYONE know where I can get a gun and staples 22 gauge?

The Business Of Upholstery / need a jig ideas?
« on: June 17, 2017, 09:30:44 PM »
I need to build a jig that will be very simple to use and hold a section of fabric that is between 4" to 8" wide. A gripper type tool mounted to a bench that I could slide the fabric in and when pulling on it makes it tighten down on the fabric to hold it. Sort of a concentric roller thingy. Does anyone have any ideas on where I might find some possible parts for such a thing? Or even buy something pre made if not to expensive.

The Business Of Upholstery / In search of #30 Reg dies
« on: April 04, 2017, 07:54:51 AM »
Does anyone have an extra set of UPH dies #30 they would part with? Not HUX. I have several set of HUX dies and need to find the UPH size. They don't seem to make them in both sizes anymore.
  Let me know if you have some and for how much. Thanks

Ever notice the word Professional has a totally different meaning in some circles?

The Business Of Upholstery / ISO Lochner Cushion Machine FL
« on: March 16, 2017, 05:46:21 PM »
I really miss my cushion machine.
  I have been sucking down filling to fill cushions and it works well but it takes longer, and just doesn't do as good a job as the lochner did. I've made a spot for it but have to find one. Anyone know of one in the Tampa Bay area?

The Business Of Upholstery / Seam guide
« on: February 10, 2017, 11:15:07 AM »
Has anyone used a guide that will follow the seam so there is a even top stitch next to the original seam? I have seen these somewhere and they consist of just a piece of steel that rides in the seam to guide the fabric. So a baseball stitch can be done better with one needle,

The Business Of Upholstery / Contracts
« on: November 01, 2016, 08:37:06 PM »
  I've never used any form of Contracts with my customers either private or trade people so I am at a loss here. I think I need to create one for C.O.M. customers to explain the liability of C.O.M.s and who is responsible for what.

  Does anyone use such a thing? If so would you mind sharing? Or point me in the right direction. I'd like to have something by the first of the year.

  Thanks

  Thanks.

The Business Of Upholstery / Sewing twisted premade welt
« on: August 06, 2016, 07:54:06 PM »
For you furniture guys, My girl can sew this pretty well but has a hard time with it. Also can't seem to put a zipper next to it. I personally don't sew this well myself so I can't help her much. Do any of you have a process or even a foot size to work with?
  Thanks.

  It never fails to amuse me the responses I see on places like facebook by so called professionals. Some are good some are like *^%&"what"! Where do people come up with these words of wisdom?
  I know everyone has to learn, but.
  Oh well nuff said.
