  1. @Bueller, @kgg See above posts that appear to have been intended to tag you. @MainiacMatt, @PlanoMike To tag someone, so they get a notice, type the @ symbol followed by their username and pick the name from the popup list.
  2. My comment is an addition to your instructions. After typing the @ plus the whole username, if I don't pick it from the popup list, it doesn't work for me. Example @burkhardt, the tag doesn't complete or work. Might work with other browsers.
  3. Pick the username from the popup list.
  4. @DOMLAGANA See above post. @steadybrook Tag the user or quote part or all of the user's message so he/she is more likely to get a notice.
  5. Please post your photos on this site rather than using 3rd party hosting. Lots of those photos disappear with changes in the host's policies, the owners move or delete photos, etc. See this link for some helps. Also lots of help on the web. If you are using your phone to take pictures to post, you can set the file size that it saves. On Windows PCs, you can use MS Paint to resize photos to post. 800 to 1024 pixels wide seems to produce good file sizes. Phone and monitor screens don't display in high resolution, so large files don't improve the appearance. Users on the fringes of the internet may take hours to download large files, so is a nice bonus to them to have smaller files.
  6. @loganreal Moved your post to the marketplace under sewing machines, used. Please read the marketplace rules and comply. Pictures, location, shipping info, etc. It may be a good idea to split this into 2 posts so you can hit both categories of equipment.
  7. I see it there now. I had wrongly assumed that you started a new thread. The best answer you're going to get is from that thread, unless you want to send a PM to Johanna who is the font of all knowledge on the operation of this site.
  8. I can't find your post there. Also, I check most new posts each day and haven't seen it. Just checked the list of your posts and it doesn't appear there either. So looks like you failed to complete the post. That is why you have received no reaponse to your post!
  9. Please upload your photos here. Using 3rd party hosts often results in loss of photos due to host changes in policies, OP deleting or moving the photos, etc. This results in the thread being useless to users that want to review and learn from your post in the future. All you need to do is to resize your photos to fit the restrictions of this site. Lots of helps on the web, and see this post for some helps and suggestions. You can also open your photos in MS Paint assuming you have a PC and resize and save the file. If you are using a cell phone, you can set the size of file for your photos. 1024 pixels wide is fine and what I used to post your photos in the original post in this thread. Photo files are about 350 kB in size versus about 3 MB. Some users live on the fringes of the internet. It may take hours to download large photos in some cases. So smaller files are an added bonus for these users. So please upload the photos that I haven't fixed for you.
  10. Moved your post to Leather Sewing Machines. You'll get more response here from the guys in the know!
  11. Reduce the picture's file size. See this thread for some helps. Plus there is loads of help on the web.
  12. Seems to work fine. What device and browser are you using? I would say something on your device is giving problems. In this box, I see the smiley face in the middle of the row of formatting stuff at the top like this screen shot.
  13. Moved your post to saddle construction.
  14. Did you intend to post in this thread or another thread, Kind of off topic somewhat.
  15. I've tried to bleach out the sun tan on pieces of vegtan where part of the hide had been exposed to sun while stored. Used oxalic acid at varying strengths, up to a really strong mixture where no more crystals would dissolve. It doesn't bleach out! Some of the marks from what I can see looks like the natural wrinkles in the hide. They look good and as said, are natural. Again, you won't be able to get rid of them either.

  21. Canada is a large place! Identifying at least the province is a good idea when dealing in a world wide forum. The IP address resolves to host-24-222-188-221.public.eastlink.ca Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia, B4C, Canada
