    In your well-written tutorial on door panels, you described using “foam to foam glue” to glue “each pleat section individually to the foam.”
    What glue, specifically did you use (should be used) for the pleat gluing? I noted that you have referred to K-Grip and Kwik Spray in other of posts relating to foam to foam applications, however, K-Grip comes in several types. Only K-Grip 201 seems to be recommended for auto use, comes in a non-aerosol form, and could be repositioned. (Seems like an aerosol spray would be difficult to spray just on the pleat channels. A liquid form of glue that could be brushed on would seem more in line with your tutorial.)
    Dan, if you have time, I would appreciate hearing from you regarding your foam to foam glue recommendations.

    Hello There, I have been doing upholstery for many years and have had a consew 225r for the last 30 or more years. I have had it worked on many times but our service guy retired so I am kind of on my own. Cleaned, oiled but it keeps go from a size 5 stitch to a 22 voluntarily. I pressed down on the button and adjusted stitch to make to bigger size but now it is only wanting to sew in reverse. I suspect that a cam or part is simply worn out but I do not know how to know which one. I do not have a manual either. I have sewn on this machine every week four days a week since my dad passed away in 1986. Any suggestions or direction. Thanks in advance

    Posted a question regarding a 55 chevy rear seat frame that has not generated any replies. Was hoping you would read and lend your expertise as I would like to get the correct repair materials.

    First, thank you for all the valuable info you have provided to all of us out here just dipping our toes in. Armed with a little knowledge and the correct contact adhesive my first foray into interior work has been kind of fun actually. I have one problem with a sunvisor though. It is from a 1987 Buick Grand National so nothing special it has a vanity light but instead of the hardboard and chipboard construction of the drivers side it is a plastic clamshell. I haven't been this stumped in a long time but how does this come apart? It almost looks like there were plastic rivets 'welded' in but that would be impossible with fabric over it. Was it just glued together? Obviously I don't want to break anything taking it apart. Many thanks.

    Hi, I was following a thread about clutch vs servo motors and I was wondering if you could answer a question I have. Currently I have a clutch motor on my industrial sewing machine. I'm thinking of getting a servo motor because I've brought the machine into the house and the clutch is pretty loud. I noticed that in that thread you said, "A servo motor is a constant torque device, so you will get the same amount of power throughout the speed range of the servo." Does that mean you can't control speed via the treadle? I've sewn on my industrial for over 20 years and know this machine better than any car I've ever driven. Will I be able to control the speed of a servo motor in the same way I can control a clutch? Like now (with the clutch) I can sew as slow as 1 stitch a second if I chose or I can gun it and sew as fast as the motor will go.

    Thank you for you time. :)

    PS Don't buy foam or fabric from Joann Fabrics, they don't have quality stuff.

    All the stuff I use I get from suppliers that only sell to the trade. The closest one that you can order from is Rochford Supply in Minneapolis or St. Paul

    Hi Dan. Seeing you are in WI, I was wondering where you find your supplies locally, or better yet, if you can find supplies locally. I am having a heck of a time down here near Tomah. Nothing in LaCrosse with good supplies, just Joanns. I try to keep things local and use local vendors. Besides being able touch, hold and see what Im buying. Anything maybe in Stevens Point --- hell even Wausau???

    I have A LOT of beginners supplies and stock to buy.....

    Hi Shine: Sorry, I just saw this today. I like Au-Ve-Co 12134 clips for door panels. Used your tip on the ping pong table for a portable cutting table. Bought a high quality table, and it works great. I wish I would have done that when I first set my shop up.
