They do make stuff that works - it's just not in our price range -
like that CNC machine for cutting fabric - that works doesn't it ?

I do constantly upgrade the crap I buy to work like intended -

The Business Of Upholstery / Re: cotton

I think the cotton is a better feel but I use both.  I reuse all the fillings from past re-coverings and add to better what was there.
I need the old road map of how things were installed and I follow that plan -

Sounds like a heat wave Darren - with the price of fuel dropping + temps rising - it's all good.
Make sure the chimney is clear for Santa -

Property value declines - language barriers - open liquor containers - sounds like a no win situation. 
Sorry to hear that you have this aggravation. 

Hopefully  the new year brings changes

I was able to peek - but may I ask a couple of things ?  The finish was wiping varnish or oil ?
And why not make a center point to rotate + cut out the base on the band saw ?

If I cleaned a fabric with water labeled " Dry clean only " and it resulted in a new issue - I've got trouble.  You of course can get away with it because you know what you're looking at.  I'm not bad on rugs with my Electrolux machine but fabrics scare me. 
I have had very good results w/afta but things like resolve seem to leave a shadow mark.  I've had good results on box springs and mattresses w/resolve.   Thanks for that link - a lot of great info.  One more thing to bring on the next service call - a Washing Machine.

If cleaning a fabric that you're unsure of the make up -Id tell customer to  test an area that doesn't show - and start with a dry cleaner rather then water based.  I see that most of the professional cleaning services have a sign off sheet that you initial before they start. It absolves them of damage e.g. running colors, water marks, fraying etc. They can usually tell what to do without causing damage. 
If the fabric covered chair was mine I'd have no hesitation trying the washing machine with mild detergent using cold water only.
