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 day

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.

  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
Floyd


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

  I really dont do much refinishing as many of you know, pretty much a canvas focus.  What interest me is the quality furniture most work on in upholstery.  I now pretty much do whats needed for updating my shop.

The top coats and finishes on furniture, as with home or my past, regards to some / most all non automotive finishes have led me to SW for their options.
 
  I can easily recall some early days I was helping out striping, sanding and if lucky a option to spray ( very limited ) anyway it was laquer that was the standard as I recall.  Now the specfics of the type or brand, I’m clueless.  Now days and a lot older again leads me to first talk to some pros as you all and as most times look to some Sherwin Williams.  I long ago started looking in their industrial spec books and this was a benefit to my job task getting some specs back then.

  So Im always up for learning some of the trade wood finish options. With that and a bit of study my choice in a production refinish and repair “ for me “ would lead to some SW (pre cat) lacquer.  The amounts I would use is limited so this may have to be re-evaluated.

Good day you all

  I recall a lot of wood work in the upholstery shop I worked in.  This was a new experience for myself although being around wood working realitives at home was the norm.

  In some discussion here there are choices to do more or less in the business end.  I sure dont need to say it is a requirement in typical new upholstery and custom re-upholstery.  I know this all to well as my early employment ( while a student ) task was a grunt and furniture shop helper.  This was my introduction to what all you professionals do on a daily basis.

  I am trying to say the wood work part has some great experiences.  Also I can easily say it can be very difficult. What I want to say is always tough when choices have to be made. Some of these would be to have “seriously” separate area from the upholstery shop.  I only mention this as the shop I was lucky to work in did infact have a designated walled off area.  So I stress this as my own places really would need this. I better wind this up it’s more than 140 characters and for some this is a pain.

God day
Floyd

ps: i have had to do some routing lately and cleaning dust afterwards upsets my OCD

  I agree, and that if a member veiwing were implemented it would require a login. Though not! being a webmaster in the slightest. This counting of heads logged on or not may not matter in the lookie see count.
Then again it may promote as we would like and calmly encourage new interested memberships.  This as mentioned also can help the sale of items in the banner, Home section.

  I have noticed other places while, not logged on some photos are viewable. In most other times its required to view pdf’s and any photos.  This is above my pay grade as to describe how these parameters are setup.

Good day
Floyd
