Hey everyone. I want to mount my roll of welt cord behind my sewing machine. I had envisioned a homemade rig of two hook arms that came out about six or eight inches from the wall with a piece of conduit between that the welt could just roll off of.
I went to Home Depot today and couldn't find what I was looking for. Does anyone know what I mean and what those arms are called? I looked in the closet hardware section and nothing extends that far out. Or is there a simpler solution?
Currently I keep the roll on the floor next to me as I sew, but it doesn't unwind smoothly and keeps getting snagged.
Thanks!

Shelf brackets with a thin pipe always work well.

We use similar for our shipping bags.

It's a closet shelf bracket? Has a ledge with holes to screw a shelf to and a hook that holds a bar to hang your clothes on? I have like five around the house with plants hanging from them.

By the time you find one you could probably make six out of scraps ;)

Like this?

That one probably sticks out more than 6", though. You could probably find a smaller one in the curtain rod dept. Similar to this:

Yep, that's it...shelf bracket with rod holder. I swear they didn't have them at Home Depot, though. Don't know how I could've missed 'em.
Peppy, of course...plant hangers! Those would work too.
Thanks guys!

JoJo:

This is how I mount my binding spools. I assume it would work the same way for welt cording.
Then again maybe not. :)

Here it is:

Chris, does your binding ever get oily? Is the conduit mounted, or just laying across the sewing table frame? Good idea!

No the binding never gets oily. I routed it away from the pan.

The conduit is mounted directly to the frame using metal conduit holders. I drilled a hole in the frame for each holder and then fixed it that way. If I am using a lot of binding then I I have to change out the roll more often. I loosen one screw slide the bar off to the side then replace the roll and then tighten the holder back down. The other holder I leave loose a little bit.

Works great. :)
