Couldn't you just use tack strips? Or curvese?

  Wouldn't be as easy with turkey knife now would it? My Bosch is only 5" I need an 8" blade set for it. Can't afford it right now though.

  I make mine out of 3/4" cabinet grade plywood. Sans smooth and primer, three coats of a good polyurethane Paint rolled on with a foam roller.
  Frame wise I use 2x4s on 16" centers so I don't get the sagging. I finish off the edges of the top with screen molding so I don't have any rough edges. No slivers, nothing to catch fabric on. Things slide nicely.

Hey Chris,

  Thanks for the offer but I'm all set for now. I got through what I needed and will probably order one from Greg.

  Where exactly are you anyway. I have a small garage shop in Spring Hill and work in Tarpon. You may have told me b4 but I forget.

Yes, 5/32 cord is best sewn with 1/4 cord foot.  I have for the Consew 205RB if you are looking for a set.

  Yes Gregg,
  I emailed you.

General Discussion / Welt foot issue
« on: November 06, 2010, 09:36:19 AM »
I'm having a hard time with a welt foot of my Consew 205RB. The foot is 3/16 and I'm using 5/32 fiber flex type cord and when sewing it the foot runs off and or over the cording. I am using a lightweight fabric. I have never experienced this before but this machine is fairly new to me. Is the foot the wrong size? Is it a foot pressure thing? The cording is nice and firm.

Thanks for any help you might offer.

I watched a canvas guy do a boat once. He did very nice work. He measured the boat with frame on. Sewed the pieces together at the rails of the frame, put one snap center for and aft and went from there marking what needed to be done. Looked so simple that I knew I would mess it up. I am a pretty good pattern maker but never tried a boat top. Some day I will. I have mine done by the canvas guy  ;D

  When I do roll and pleating I sew like Scotty said but up one direction then down the next. They lay nicely. Also I don't fold the foam. I lay it out on the foam and slice through the foam leaving the backing in tact then just fold over the vinyl or whatever I'm using into the slice and sew it down.
  Different strokes for different folks I guess. Just the way I learned.

I've tried a new Acu-Cutter. Model # unknown two blades one moves, and was very disappointed in its capabilities. Had to push hard on it to get through 5" standard foam. The Bosch is a much better cutter. I found one on ebay as I had sold my original and this one is as good as my original. You can save money buying the Acu-Cutter but it ain't a Bosch.
  Many years ago I used an electric knife but once I bought a Bosch the cuts were as they should be and faster. Still use the band saw for some cuts.

« on: October 24, 2010, 09:03:22 PM »
  If you do need to manually oil the machine a couple of drops is enough. depending on once a week or a day if you use it all day. You don't want it to be dripping on the fabric.
  I use any clear sewing machine oil. don't use other types as they may have additives that will harm the machine.

If your taking the welt cord off the spool from the end this might be the problem. Make a rack so it unrolls off the spool. I find this makes for a smoother finish.

When I run into this I rough cut the pieces and use 1/4" poly and cement it to the vinyl. It has served me well and would cut the cost of a custom bonding order.

Light pressure is the only way. If you make a few you will get to feel the shell close around the back. Do it very slowly and you will gain a feel for it. You will still spoil a few but this is possible.
