Need to know if you need to use a leather chisel tiped needle for doing leather automotive leather? if so my chandler uses 135x17 needles but those types of needles are not avail or at least i have not been able to find them. I did find them in 135x16 will those work?
Not only that becareful not to cut yourself with those flooded cars in the auto field we were warned of potential dangers of terriable infections caused by cutting yourself on one of those. those cars were flooded with not only water but sewage and what ever else was floating in there

No he knew he is a friend of my son. He could not believe his  eyes it turned out very well I was very happy as well. Next ? dont know boating season winding down here and economy pretty crappy. Looking at doing my jeep wranglers interior its a cool green color thinking of dark gray or black leather with leather dyed the same color as exterior for the inserts. I really want to do automotive interiors or I do have some old 70s buckets out of some older mopars I may redo and sell.
Thanks for asking

Tried that link said store longer avail?

Anyways dont even need to be Dabond brand just a bright green for top stitching seats for a jeep wranger.  so im thnking a 138 at least
I did the same thing on the set I just did on that bayliner. I took the tip of my very small pencil  soilder iron and held it away an inch or 2 then started moving toward the small  holes and watched till they just started to close up. move soilder iron very slowly or you will melt the vinyl. I know its a bad habit but I  smoke and have used the hot end of my cigarette to do the same. they will not go completely away but look alot better. Just watch the heat or it will look bad

Well went and did it kicking my old singer to the side. Bought a new Chandler 406rb1 from Gregg. I shopped and bothered Gregg a million times decided in talking to Gregg I was going to buy my mach from him a dealer who cares and takes the time to make it right. I even splurged and bought a new table top.

Props to Gregg havent got the machine but the customer service is what I like  ;D

General Discussion / one for mojo rv awning
August 31, 2011, 05:10:00 pm
The neighbor asked if i could do awnings. question is what material is used for the part that slides into the roller and the slide attached to the rv?

What would be the best material to use something like top gun?

Ive had all kinds of different requests lately.
Oh my :o  I would run and hide if I turned out work that that!!! I know the feeling I lost a job on a older mastercraft ski boat. nothing big a bucket a lounge and a rear bench he wanted all the pleats and a logo put in the seats i quoted a fair price for the job i thought. Oh I wish I had a camera im no pro but man what a job wrinkle city none of the pleats lined up looked so bad hope he didnt pay for it

then he asks how much to fix it told him Ill pass on that some people

Ok here we go for the bayliner I did the interior he wants a full cover made down to the rub rail.
The only problem I see (mabey just a brain fart) is the back boarding platform has a support that runs higher than the rub rail there making it a little hard for a drawstring to work there. I was thinking about anchoring the draw string on either side of the cut out for the support? any other ideas that work?

Im still pushing  for a snap on cover

Thanks jojo lucky for me this guy hated that color layout and hated the fact that the welts running across the cushions left marks in his girlfriends butt. Thats why none of the cushions have welt on them. That made it an easy sell on that color layout

Let me bounce a price off you guys and tell  me what you think

I figured 850 for a fitted snap down cockpit and bow cover incl materials too high too low? not too many shops around me to shop prices off of

Thanks Jeff
