The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Serrated Walking Feet
« on: November 11, 2010, 01:19:21 PM »
I love specialized feet, and have a boatload of snap-on feet for my domestic machine.  But, my industrial is a walking foot, and I HATE changing the feet.  >:( So... I basically do everything with a welt foot.  ::)

This is going a little off topic, but...  Sam Sloan (Sloan Machinery) in Massachusetts invented a quick-change device that holds up to three feet on your straight-stitch industrial machine -- ready to drop into place.  Can't remember the cost, but it wasn't much.

As long as the name is not too limiting.  If your name is something like, "Gene's Draperies"  and you decide to get into furniture or marine, you have a problem getting looked over.

Wish I had realized this when I started...  "West Village" is the old name for my part of town -- that part wasn't hard.

1. West Village Drapery -- turns out I hate doing window treatments.
2. West Village Upholstery -- not bad, except I was doing slipcovers at the time. Duh.
3. West Village Studio -- general, all-purpose (no matter where I go with it).

Had to register (or re-register) with Fed, state, and local offices, and change everything at the bank every single time.  When I added buttons, I got smart and just did a DBA.  West Village Studio is the official, legal name, although I hardly use it anymore -- buttons kinda took over my life...

Paul, I have a 3/4 complete set (bottom die is toast), if you're interested.

I have a local supplier that sells them for $15 (they don't have a website)
Here's one website that sells them for $15-$20, depending on size:

Ah, now I understand... #22 is at that price.  They don't tend to lose their edge like the bigger cutters do.

A new button cutter is only $15.

No offense, sofadoc, but not according to any price list I have here.  Where are you getting these 15.00 cutters?

Bobby Mac the Knife Sharpening Service is now sharpening button and grommet cutters by mail.  Bob can sharpen any brand cutter, and he has a fast turnaround time.

We are not affiliated in any way, but Bob sharpened my cutters and they cut like buttah.  :D  No one else offers this service, and I am pleased to recommend him.

He's running a promotional special right now -- contact him directly for details:
