Ely,I have a question. What plastic do you use for your map case material? I have some stuff that I used over the last season and it held up pretty well, but it sorta has the vibe of becoming brittle over time. Thanks for any suggestions!I love watching your work,Dave
Sounds like you may be using mylar? .040 mil or .030? clear vinyl is pretty good. I get it from Tap. http://www.tapplastics.com/product_info/plastics_information/specialtyYou'd have to get a little and try it out.
Dave, email me your address and dimensions and I'll cut and send you a piece of what I use. elykrod-at-gmail
Hey Ely,Thanks again for your generosity! I happen to have some vinyl around, so I should be all set. Now that you put a name to it it seems like such an obvious material to use. I guess the thickness of what I've got on hand threw me off a little. You rock,Dave
Hi Ely,I'm at something of a dead end. I am trying to do the sort of detail that I see in the close-up photo above; I can approximate this, but its rougher then I'd like. I currently have a Consew RB 1 flatbed as my sole sewing machine. I'm wondering, do you do your trim and leather patch stitching with your Pfaff? It looks so good and I want to figure out what I need to do to get there. Best regards,Dave
Just a thought...if it's easier, you can email me at eatbikenap AT gmavt.netCheers,Dave
