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