Correction: When I said "I don't understand what you guys are talking about," I was referring to what fordSR and Dan were discussing:

fordSR:
I do use a guide attached to the bed of my machine for a uniform width. The carpet edge of course, must be trimed straight. I have several binders, some that I made and some that I bought from CutSewService. I use brass shim stock about .040 thick for any attachments that I make. This is easy to form and can be soldered to a heavier brass plate where it screws to the bed. I'm sure you could make a carpet binder to suit your needs.

Dan:
Do you solder or braize the shim stock, or is braizing too much for the brass to handle?
I'd love to see some pictures of these jigs!
