Workspace, tools, machinery, and manufacturing / Re: Bartacker jigs

Maybe add a small cutout notch to help with aligning the tab when bartacking along the length of the tab.

Asset exchange / WTB 6" elastic

Wondering if 6" elastic even exists.  After it in CB and RG; MC is a pipedream.

Thanks

After a couple of meters of 500D M81 Woodland Cordura, shipped to the UK.

Thanks,

I was thinking that pulling downwards (ie away from yourself) would be more instinctive than pulling upwards (towards yourself), if you've got limited mobility/in confined spaces.

My version has velcro loop on the top as well (extra effort, may or not be worth it), with narrower slots.

I'm going with the Crye style myself.  To make it cross compatible with PCs that use a velcro flap round the back, I've got a lasercut laminate insert, with slots cut for the cummerbund to slide through.  Lasercut loop with slots on the front too.  I'll post up some photos when I'm free.

http://kwokhing.com/  has 430 bobbins. Very cheap...something like 0,40$ per piece. shipping is expensive so buy a whole bunch of em :).

I'm from HK originally so when I went back last year to visit family, I paid Kwok Hing a visit and picked up quite a few bits and pieces, to say the least.  2 for the sharpest pair of scissors I've owned to date.  They have a lot of stock but it's not displayed very well at the shop at all.  I ended up describing the bit of kit I wanted to them with my rusty Cantonese.

Their English is pretty good, given the number of ex-pats, but having the advantage of knowing Cantonese does mean you can haggle (at least a bit)!

Vendors and sources / Re: Pre wound bobbins

Does not having sides on the bobbins affect them?  I'm wondering if I can run the Style M ones on my normal machine (Highlead 0618 SC).

Everything else / Re: Leatherwork

I bought some offcuts of leather from a local craftsman and was going to try some lasercutting with them.  Do I need to sand and burnish the edges, or can I get away with just the cut edge?

That I did.  Not a happy chappy.

Might end up getting it off GSI, if this police contract materialises.

Materials science / Inconsistencies in Type 13 webbing stiffness
« on: June 23, 2017, 09:29:25 AM »
I've bought small amounts of black Type 13 webbing off TwoWayTrauma and also an EU supplier (since it is not as popular of a colour).  What's rather peculiar is that it is far less stiff than the Tan499 and RG Type 13 that I bought from GSI.  Any thoughts as to why?  They are all "resin impregnated" and should be to the same spec?  May have to end up adding a plastic stiffener to black belts.

Cheers,

Ed

So I bought some small samples of the 3M in the UK.  A pasta machine is a reasonable substitute for a roller laminator for small runs!
