Quote from: MinUph on June 02, 2020, 06:33:57 pmThese forums here are run by a business. If this business can't afford rental on a server with enough space to house images maybe  the business owner should find a better way to advertise the business. Server space is honestlh not that expensive and some free places are available also. I'm done here. I have tried to help in whatever way I could think of but it just isn't worth seeing the other two of three members. By the way I started a Facebook page with th Ed same name. The owner her is more than welcome to it. All they need to do is ask. It's called upholster.

You started a FB page Paul? Can I join?

Interesting problem Gene. I'd be curious to see the details as I'm sure it will become more common.  You're welcome to post a pic on my FB page if you want.

If you cover over the burlap with another piece of strong fabric and staple it to the side, that would help prevent the cotton from tearing or bunching up?

There were many layers of cotton. The one that was torn, I discarded. I will place a fresh layer to replace that and staple it as it was originally done. Then, replace the rest of the cotton, and upholster it as it was originally done. I had considered foam, but I will do it the same way it was done at the factory.

What's the pregnant look? Too much around the edges?

Nothing really. I can put it back on. I was concerned there might be cat urine but I'm in the clear.

Well, when we have the option of sharing a photo in a heartbeat, dealing with less than that can be aggravating.

I'm not quite 40 and I remember vividly the days of dial-up. Sharing photos was like some sort of mythical wish.

Need some opinions.
This seat is coil springs on top of sinuous springs. The seat was padded with many layers of cotton. How would you re-pad it?

We are now required to shelter in place. What makes it even stranger is that you turn on the boob tube and nothing is happening. No sports, no activities, just nothing. It's going to be a long haul. And, no age group is really in the clear, from what I understand. Stay safe folks

More like, it's logical NOT to post for that amount of hassle.

I'm not sure lazy is the right word. For me personally:

Take photo. Upload to drive. resize photo. Allow permissions. make permanent link. check that perm link works. then post.

I like our little group, and we all know each other.. I'll look into setting up a FB group.

It's kind of a bear to post images here, so wondering if anyone's using some different media that we can exchange more easily. I'd be open to opening a new group or whatever it takes on fb. Let me know.
