    Zippers!

    In my opinion the strongest zipper is ykk nylon coil, for your application I would use a #5, the trick to any zipper is to keep your stitches close, what I mean don't stitch 3 stiches per in, go with 5 to 6 per inch an back off on the tention,if using steel tooth zipper make sure the zipper teeth are facing the same direction when putting on the zipper pull ( the teeth should be facing you as you put on the zipper pull. with nylon coil it don't matter

    Take an measure from the top center top the bottom center using a seamstress tape, add 3" an that is the length zipper you will need. Take the zipper an open, run one down one side and the other on the other side. run the ends up the center.. Now stitch the zipper in place.

    Skiver

    I am seriously thinking about buying a cb 801 edge skiver. I have never used one an don't know if it is really worth it. I would like feedback as to the importants of one and if there are any good video's of what they are used for. I make a lot of things like purses, wallets, tote bags, random coin bags. How would this skiver improve the quality of my work ? Do any of you use these ? and how has it helped you ? Any photo's of your personal work would really help me Thank you Dan
