  1. Need help with an idea

    What I would do is put a D-ring, one on each the side of the gusset. One on the back side of the gusset ( right ) an one on the front side (left) that way it wont mater how much weight you have on either side, it will carry evenly with the shoulder strap
  2. Antique Singer

    I know it is just used to sew my linings. I have a cb4500 for the heavy stuff. I think I will just toss it then. I have a good treadle from 1898 an it sews great. no LOSS
  3. Antique Singer

    Yes I was hoping I could find help in finding parts for my 1910 Singer # G883240. Its a treadle head only, This machine was giving to me from a friend an I took it to my local sewing shop to have it cleaned up an gone through an there is a part missing. The knob that adjust the stitch length is on the machine but the inside piece that does the actual adjusting that attaches to the backside of the knob is missing. Where can I find parts an is there a break down photo's of the inside of this machine for repair purposes?

  5. Leather glue

    I have a friend that wants a wood box that he made for his tattoo equipment covered with leather. What is the best glue for this or do I need to nail the leather to the wood ? I want it to hold for years to come.

    You don't want to use suede as a wallet linner you will rip your bills trying to get them out of the wallet, you want a smooth liner.

  12. Stool Seat Cover Options?

    Good videos to watch on the Mexican round braid.
  13. Stool Seat Cover Options?

    Veg tan will work but as far as lacing, I don't like it on a stool the lacing will give out long befor the leather will but you can if thats what you like.
  14. Stool Seat Cover Options?

    Your foam you want the same dia. as the top of the seat.
  15. Stool Seat Cover Options?

    I use chrome oil tan on mine here at home 2/3oz. You could lace like you stated but on that stool the lacing would not hold up to repeated use. What I would do is use a contrasting color for your 4" strips, Machine or hand sew. if you like fringe, sew 6" fringe around the base of the seat. For the top of the stool cut a circle 15.5"s to allow for the 1/2" seam allowance The dia of this seat is 13.5"s so multiply that by pie 3.14 an you come up with 42.39 this is how long your 4" strips would need to be if lacing, if sewing add 1" for a 1/2" seam allowance.
