So I work at a used car superstore and we use standardized work.  standardized work is close to a check list but it is to the next level in the detail shop in the wash bay all the work is broken down to every step.  The steps are as small as walk to cart or pick up wash glove and brush.  This sounds crazy but does help to have all the cars look the same when finished and have the same quality.  We also take it a step further by having time studies.  Those are how long each step takes down to the second.  all this stuff works for repetitive work but I think some stuff could be taken and used in a trim shop.  One of the things that would really work is the Kan Ban system for ordering supplies ( http://www.ehow.com/about_6299631_information-kanban.html?ref=Track2&utm_source=ask )  We make a 3x5 index card with the name of the supply, cost, how long it takes to receive it, how many to order, and a minimum of how many should be on hand.  once the minimum is reached we turn the card in and order the supplies

the co2 tank I use is 7 inch diameter and about 23 inches tall weighs about 10 or 15 lbs.  right now it is holding 700 psi and I have http://www.ebay.com/itm/15-lb-CO2-Tank-Steel-Cylinder-Homebrew-Fresh-Hydro-/280771187067?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item415f44517b  This is close to mine.  I think when I filled it it was 1800 psi.  I havn't used it much but have had it for 3 years with out refilling it  i think its only 20 or 25 bucks to fill it and you can rent tanks for like 5 bucks with no return date.  It would be great if you don't have power at a job sight.  hope this helps

Hey I saw someone talk about a co2 conversion from home depot.  I have been running a co2 tank for the past couple of year its a big tank I get refilled at a welding place here in town.  I used a old military surplus regulator that was in my dads garage.

The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Dyeing Business (not dying LOL)
« on: July 19, 2011, 10:26:26 PM »
if you are using an actual dye you should be OK it has the consistency of water however if you are using sem coat or the sems aerosol the carpet will probably make the nap stiff.  and if there are any stains you will only dye the stains a darker color as well as the rest of the carpet which will still leave the stains.

Hope this helps

I was thinking that it would hurt your wrist too.  Even in the video he starts wearing wrist braise at about the 1 min mark.
