  1. I was going to say the same thing. I have found that if you give taps and a ir ular motion they seat fine. It's a lot like peeing over a rivet. If you just hit it with a big hammer it will cause problems.
  2. http://pin.it/A8p9qrh If I was going to make one I would go this route. This design could be easily modified to fit several different needs depending on how you plan on carrying it.
  3. Anyone tried to make bicycle grips? Would love to make some just not sure how to go about it.
  4. Thanks for bringing this point up as I forgot to mention it. As this was my first attempt at anything like this. I did use a iron to hest the image after I let it dry for a couple of days. I think an oven would work better though.
  5. It was dry. The one thing I will say was this was my second attempt. The first one I did not leave to dry long enough so when I put on the resolene it faded bad and made the image all muddy. On this one I let it sit for about 3 days (may have been over kill) and then buffed it before I put the finish on. It still faded but not like the other one did.
  6. This is how I did it.
  7. I did this holster for Deputy_hookem on instagram. The image is of his hip hop CD cover.
  8. Thanks for the info. I was pretty sure that I was going to have to stitch them together just wanted to make sure.
  9. A buddy of mine asked me to make him a set of reins that are 9 feet long. It seems pretty straight forward except I will need to splice in a section to make the 9 feet. Would it be best to slice glue and rivet or skive glue and sew? Thanks for any advice.
  10. So I have three different color threads for my boss. White, red, and dark brown. When I use the red and brown on my test pieces they run perfect. Start on my project and the top thread starts shredding and a huge know on the bobbin side. If I change to my white and make ko adjustments it runs perfect. Any suggestions on why this might be happening?
  11. You might get a better response if you post this in the sewing machine sub forum. Good luck.
  12. My Boss was doing the same thing. Changed the needle double checked tension. Bingo Bango bobs your uncle.
  13. That's what I thought thanks
  14. Does anyone know if these built on the same frame? Will one pattern work for the other? Thanks
  15. Thanks for emailing them Dwight. After putting in a new needle and readjusting my presser foot tension it seems to work a lot better. I haven't really had a chance to put a bunch of time into since my 3 year old just his tonsils removed as well as we are trying to move. Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your machine now. Thanks for all the help.
