I had one of those years ago tried it a couple times and it went in the tool box. I've since thrown it out. If you ask me its junk. Might be good for wide crown staples that aren't driven in all the way.

General Discussion / Re: Wire on Conical springs HELP??
« on: January 28, 2011, 09:15:52 PM »
Sounds like drop in spring units. They would be factory spec to fit the frame. If they are bad and the frame can hold webbing you can web the base and klinch the springs to the webbing. When these units are made it generally means the factory wanted to save some money or they didn't feel the frame could support the webbing stress. The drop ins place all the stress in a downward motion from the top of the rail instead of pulling the bottoms of the rails toward each other.

I have every browser there is. Chrome is OK. I generally fall back to IE after playing with the rest. I do use Opera for Yahoo games it just works better there. I ditched IE9 it isn't ready for public beta yet.

I started using Internet Explorer 9 yesterday and am seeing an issue with editing these posts. Is anyone else trying it out yet? If so how is it going for you?

I used brass then moved to aluminum for years. Now I have turned to like the plastic better. The slides I get are not that big. #5 seems about right and they are nice and strong.

  I've had some decent luck on CL through the years. You will probably get a bunch of spam, and nonsense from it but just use common sense and you will be fine. The cost is right and if you get a client out of it its worth the trouble.
  I've found a well done ad does better than just text. It make you look more professional. My opinion anyway.

Ready for the overflow Chris :)

I have done a few inlays recently that I really like the looks of.  It is just like doing an appliqué only reversed.  I put the inlay color I wanted on the backside and stitched the design.  Then carefully cut very close to the stitching to remove the unwanted area.  If you want it padded just put it over scrim foam.  You can also trim the scrim from the backside right at the edge of the inlay to make it pop a little more.  Hope it helps, Roy.
  Roy how to you trim the waist out cleanly? Do you use shears?

When you see an ad like that it means they carry the foot for all those machines. You would normally supply your machine model when you order the part.

leather,
  I would imagine it is tacked. I believe they used wood framing back then.

It could be that you are cutting the vinyl in the wrong direction. As you may or may not know it will stretch more in one direction than the other and if you use this to your advantage it lays better when pulled into place.

General Discussion / Re: Foam for a hot tub cover
« on: January 02, 2011, 08:35:28 PM »
The cover on my hot tub at my last house was just a flat cover probly 3 1/2" or 4" thick.

  Mike, mine is outside on a patio in full sun and rain. Even though the cover on it is tapered it still puddles water. Also the weight of the water tends to warp the foam and then it gets worse from there on.
  Thanks for the input though.

I've seen them both way, tapered and flat. A larger one like the one you mentioned probably should be tapered. That foam shapes pretty good. Rough shape it with a long blade sharp knife or a foam saw, then either a deft touch with a grinder to finish it off or a long board with a piece of say 80 grit sandpaper on it will make quick work of it to taper it down. Just remember light pressure with what ever you use.

OK So this seems do-able. Since you have done these before how do you reinforce for the hinge? I can probably use my old hinge. (This cover is for my tub) and I know there must be reinforcements inside the insert. Do you just glue a strip of metal?
  Thanks Kyle, and Mike

Hi Kyle,
  So these inserts aren't tapered? Wouldn't the water puddle if they are just flat?

  Thanks for the input.
