General Discussion / Uniform?
« on: September 04, 2018, 10:21:15 PM »
I was sitting here thinking what I migh be for halloween. Or, what kind of pumpkin person I'd do.
Then I thought, was there ever an upholsterers uniform? Like, painters wear white coveralls.
Plumbers wear pants that show their crack.
Highway workers wear orange.
What about us?

Something I always dreamed of. 😞

General Discussion / Re: Let's build a table
« on: September 03, 2018, 08:37:36 PM »
I wondered if there was a way to adapt one of these new stand up motorized computer desks. I don't know that they'd hold that much weight as they come, but maybe the idea could be adapted? pretty sure it's just a small motor to raise/lower instead of this other table using pneumatic.

Mostly, yes. It's a combo class that's geared towards students within fashion design or interior design.

I didn't know that red/green fade the most.
Funny thing, cus the neighbor just bought an umbrella - in red!

I enrolled in a textiles class at the local community college. Maybe I'll learn something new. There's a slight chance we'd go on an outing to L.A. to a textile mill.

When I first began sewing, I bought a little 'outdoor' printed duck for the patio chairs. (joann) I was blown away by how long the colors lasted. As a comparison, I bought two outdoor umbrellas that were green. They faded terribly.
Extremely hard to know. Even if you're a chemist, have a microscope, and are thoroughly versed in textiles production.

Yes, that's where I learned of that technique.

KodyD-
Yes, in certain situations I have attached foam to the backrest, then cut it. Especially if curved. I suppose I could do it another way, just seemed easiest.

Good stuff Kody. I also have seen people interested in decorating with pews as you said. And for someone to reintigrate post Vietnam is a monumental feat.

Well the EZE is pretty burly compared to a turkey knife.
Thick, solid foam - cuts like 'a hot knife thru budda'
Though, soft foam, it kind of just runs into it. Which is a bit concerning - like say I pad the backrest with soft foam, and I want to trim it to the top rail. Will it do the same thing?

General Discussion / Re: Should we have our air compressors checked?
« on: August 28, 2018, 10:11:17 PM »
Good point Kody.
I'd think in a humid climate like yours, it's better safe than sorry.
Finding a tech though, I don't know.

If I lost 35 lbs I would be emaciated. I'm 6', 165lbs.

Paul, I am highly, highly offended. I can't even begin to --

Sprung for an EZE. Letcha all know how it goes. Next job pays for it anyway. My edges weren't ever ragged, but looking foward to an easier tool to use.

Looks good Steve. What did you do for those front corners?

And a lot of times for low back pain, your glutes or butt needs stretched.

Yup, straight cuts are tricky. I do fine now, and as you say, with Dacron etc it doesn't matter much.
Still using a Monty Ward that was given to me. And first used as the tool for the TG turkey. Keeps on hummin away.
