I ve already went down that road with plasti-dip,the product is good , it gave reasonable results ,but drying times interfered with production .
I have done experiments with irons ( domestic and soldering ) and believe if I can hit the right temp range I can make a heated press that will give repeatable results.
Failing that ,I have a small manual injection moulding unit , I will try something similar to the ends of the Spanish buckle.

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?

Hi Corvus ,I had the same problem ,with the same machine .only difference mine was intermittent.
I could run it all day without problem ,next day I had to rethread after 5 tacks,next day good again .
I looked at my threading ,I changed needles ,even room temp ( it seemed to happen when it was cold in the workshop )
I changed the company who supplied my thread and I havenít had any more trouble .

I can vouch for contact left ,quick and efficient,I tried the ROC on a job and didn't really 
like them

I have been watching this article with interest ,at present I am cutting 2 inch straps by the hundred and it tedious.
I also just bought a cheapo Chinese laser cutter ( to learn with ) when setting it up I cut through a 40 mm piece of webbing and it cut it quick and nice ( and square ) would it be possible to make a strap cutter using one of these machines .
The y axis to cut across and the x Axis to run the feed rollers

hi dan ,I have been using mammoth tape ( it comes in 1/2 inch and 1 inch width ) ,I don't know if it's available stateside ,but it works well with webbing kydex and cordura ,it takes a final cure after 24 hours and is easy to sew through.
