Materials science / Heat forming
« on: February 15, 2019, 03:21:53 PM »
I am working on a project just now ,I am not happy with the finish in the 1 inch( doubled) webbing tabs.
I was thinking of making a heated mould/pattern that would finish the tabs better , has any body tried this or has any experience of heat forming or finishing webbing without stitching on end plastic tabs?
