Congratulations! Out of curiosity - are there more than  1 designers at EI or do you replace a lone person who left?

There are multiple.  I'm one of three.  Really looking forward to working with them, I discovered one of them designed one of my favorite packs of all times, so it's a little surreal to be working alongside people that have designed things that I own and absolutely love.

I can cut it for you again.

I never regret buying my Juki 1541 brand new at retail price plus tax from a local dealer, mine was having hook issue after the first week but under the warranty they fixed it immediately for free and since then with zero problems. Had I brought one used or from out of state it would had cost me a lot of money to get it operational.

My advice is save up and get a new one from a local dealer that offer warranty so you can take it back in case it breaks, pretty sure most dealer offer financing options too so it's not like you have to pay the full price out front.

About 6 months ago we demolished the three bedrooms on our little 1000 square foot house, lived out of the front room for a while, and built an addition.  Has been an adventure.  Both my wife and I get dedicated sewing rooms.  We finished mine as quickly as we could...currently, Bergspitze Customs is the last knot on the end of my rope, having been laid off from my full time biochemistry job a month ago and my part time job (of 4 years) being converted to a full time job and given to someone else outside the organization this last week.  Glad to have sewing to fall back on, since other positions, short of flipping burgers, are few and far between right now in my area and we can't move until the house is done (and that would still suck to do after all this work).

So here's the first look at the new space.  Slightly over 300 square feet.  I converted half of a ping pong table into a cutting table with a large Rhino cutting mat on top.  That is attached to a fabric rack that I built from scraps from the construction, and another fabric rack sits underneath for the rest...amazing to see how much fabric has accumulated over the years.  My Consew 206RB-1 sits at the end of the table, raised up on risers to be at the same level as the table.  This provides extra support for larger objects.  Have a horse blanket dropped off for repair that is a perfect example of when that will be helpful.

Going around the room from there I have a large whiteboard (considering pulling it off the mount and putting it on the wall), rolling cart with small-parts bin that I have all my hardware sorted into, a Union Special 39500 overlock, Consew 29BL, Brother PR1000E embroidery machine, and a Juki LUH-520.  Back to the right is an L-shaped office desk with a hot knife cutter on the left side, a converted shoe rack holding all my narrow goods.  Under the narrow goods sits a blueprint cabinet that I got on the local classifieds for $40.  Will eventually convert all my pattern pieces to a sturdy option like chipboard and store them in there.

Tape on the walls marks the studs, so I can hang some more pegboard.  More photos to come.

Introductions / Clones

I am so sorry, i read the rules (Ripoffs, replicas, knock offs, etc), I replaced the photo with a photo of product with my own design (dump pouch). A passage of text "My first creation was a clone of MRB from CP, with..." It's more a description of how I got to sew equipment. Of course, I'm working on my own functional design now.  :)

Asset exchange / Re: WTB: Cardboard tubes for fabric storage
« on: November 16, 2017, 08:23:14 AM »
JoAnn Fabrics was a no-go. I was told in no uncertain terms that they do not give away any tubes, as each store has to pay for them. Even when politely asking where they get their tubes from I was told that was something they aren't allowed to divulge. Alrighty then  :o I walked down the plaza to Lowes, bought a bunch of 10ft lengths of PVC and cut them to size in the parking lot to fit in my car. Came out to $1.63 per tube. I'm still figuring out how to efficiently wrap the start of the roll without a set of rollers. I came up with a little table jig for laying down a 2" piece of masking tape sticky side up along the full width of the material and overlapping 1" on the fabric and 1" on the PVC pipe. There's plenty of adhesion to get a nice even wrap going. I'll post pictures in the Workspace/Tools/Mfg section if anyone is interested.

Need some PALs or at least a strip of hook'n'loop ;)

I'm sure WTF has the facts on this, but I believe CSM fabrics output Chlorine gas, same as vinyl.

I wouldn't lasercut it without a proper MSDS read-through, a proper filter and proper after-cutting procedures.

Concept, design, and engineering / Re: Preferred grommet size?
« on: October 05, 2017, 11:35:16 PM »
#00 Rolled rim spur grommets are perfect for what I am doing in 99% of the cases. My main motivation for chosing the RRSG over a regular grommet and washer is the fact that it has a wider base and better fabric gripping properties meaning it wont tear out of the hole as easily as a regular grommet when loaded.
