    How To Make Coin Conchos

    I have to say that way one of the best "how to" articles I've ever read. Clear, informative and easily read. KUDOS

    Why are my wrapped panels shrinking?

    Veg tanned stuff I make shrinks after wetting, tooling, coloring and finishing, but it sounds like you are using chrome tanned finished leather which should retain its size unless exposed to moisture (Maybe gluing the leather with acrylic, water based glue to the matte boards) Or exposure to high heat or bright lighting. That's my guess. Bob Stelmack

    Cutting table top material?

    I went to my local "old/new hardware" shop where there nut, bolts, fittings, barrels, etc. See pictures of the shop: https://www.google.com/maps/uv?hl=en&pb=!1s0x549878d6916d69bf:0x95dacdfe91069a4f!2m22!2m2!1i80!2i80!3m1!2i20!16m16!1b1!2m2!1m1!1e1!2m2!1m1!1e3!2m2!1m1!1e5!2m2!1m1!1e4!2m2!1m1!1e6!3m1!7e115!4shttps://lh5.googleusercontent.com/p/AF1QipPlJO7mZ93YGG1h7jqEOpEiuHdkwnWOXaDyzpsU%3Dw213-h160-k-no!5sart+carpenter+kennewick+-+Google+Search&imagekey=!1e10!2sAF1QipPlJO7mZ93YGG1h7jqEOpEiuHdkwnWOXaDyzpsU&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjH7MTftPXfAhXKwVQKHd6PDhkQoiowCnoECAYQBg ...and purchased a roll of rubber conveyor belt. I used 3-foot wide, because my table was 3-foot wide. The belt is smooth rubber, about 3/8 inch thick and has bias ply construction like tires.

    purse repair

    I don't do purse repair unless my wife tells me too. ;-) The main reason is, every time I've tried to install a zipper It always goes wrong and looks crooked, so even the bible covers I make do not have zippers on them. Bob Stelmack

    Tricycle Restoration? (my second project)

    Cool...
  12. "So the switch has 3 connections one is labeled C the other O (both red wires) and the third has no markings (it had the blue wire). When I removed all the wires and tested the switch I got a change when touching the unmarked one and on the "C" but no change when on the "O"...pictures of switch attached. " The unmarked connection is a common wire of the switch, when the switch IS NOT depressed the (C) section (called the normally "closed" position) is electrically connected to the unmarked connection. The unmarked connection is a common wire of the switch, when the switch IS depressed the (O) section (called the normally "open" position) is electrically connected to the unmarked connection.

    Consew 206RB With Thicker Thread

    After the bobbin is placed in the bobbin holder, then run the thread though the cut slot and exit between the spaces on the bobbin tension spring. I couldn't see from the video if you did it right. Then DO NOT pull the the thread the way you show in the video. The thread is meant to come out of the bobbin from the top, otherwise the thread will fray. Make sure the bobbin is not too full or rubbing one the bobbin case. The tension discs will loose tension if you have raised the foot, either by the manual latch or by the pedal on the floor. If neither is the case then the pin that opens the tension discs is stuck. Hope this helps. Bob Stelmack
