@WILD BILL I did some seats with the customer ordering the replacement covers. Before he brought it to me . He was going to replace them hisself. but he soon found out. that the parts and places the covers needed to be cut out were not. Thats when it got passed on to me.. plus they did not have the...
Yes , thats albrights. The good thing about using them , is you can usually get them the next day. I just have to pass the cost on to the customer. Right now , things are tight with people. I always get my material cost up front. Because i have done work and it set for weeks cause they dont have the...
you need to try to fill in the tears or glue the rips and missing foam maybe band-aid them with a patch! before you add the 1/2 inch foam to make it smoother ! can't wait to see other comments on this without replacing all the foam. Foam is expensive right now , just for 5 yards of 1/2 inch 5 yards ...
I agree with @JimmieJoe 1/2 inch foam to keep the shape do not stretch just let it flow with the chair.
no worse than that is i would almost get a sharpie and color it in !

I have a business name so really all i had to do was register. it has a lifetime warranty . I have never had a ...
Material cost , mainly. Think about electricity, time you can be a little cheaper on. Cause it’s a learning time too. Just kind of write it down keep a list.

My problem was it had been redone before. And not good. So all my patterns were trash. This is what it ended ...
Okay , If you do try it let me know how it works, always looking for something new, or some tools, i haven't tried. one of my newest tools is the decorative furniture tacks gun , and since i got it not one job that requires them . ha , I'm ready for when i get a job.
No! First I heard of it. What can it be used for how messy is it to use.
I have 2 work horse servo motors from sailrite. I like them so far.
