Looking to find a yard or two of any available Kryptek patterns. Anybody have a roll they can spare a few yards from or even decent sized scraps?

Thanks in advance!

The only thing I'd focus on is your load times.

When starting out, a pretty website is far less important than most people think. Your website only works so well if there's no one on it. I'd focus more on how you're going to get shoppers on the site.

Credibility - 10 years of Ecomm experience with over $6mil in sales. Most of this experience is not in THIS industry, but the fundamentals are always the same.

Get people on the site, provide great content to keep them on the site. This will turn into purchases.

Can you show me a picture of the material you're talking about, I'll see if I can find something locally and test it.

In a slightly related note. Anyone here interested in selling 5 yards of each of the Kryptek patterns? :)

From experience best results come from a change of settings. If it's scorching, lower power and add passes or go slower.

Interesting thought, I've just driven into the shop we bought it from (1.5 hours away), since it came with a 1 year warranty when we bought it. I'll let you know the outcome.

Long story short, after several parts replaced I still can't get our Brother LS2-B837 to run correctly. The timing is seemingly correct, tension is correct.

If I go at snails pace, it seems to work fine until about 50 stitches where it bunches up underneath and creates a disaster.

If I use any speed above snails pace it bunches up underneath and creates a disaster.

Any suggestions here?

Thanks for the feedback, when you say GSI, you mean GSI the outdoors company?

Old thread, but the machine has been decent. Being old, it's mechanically simple so most of the staff have figured out how to correct most issues on their own without need for a technician. Now that I've found service manuals, it's made parts much easier to acquire too.

Hey all, I've run a few prototypes of a battle belt, and would like to make a belt that compliments its design. What is the common type of web used to make all of the Cobra belts I see around? Any advice is appreciated.

This thread was just about exactly what I need. I've been looking for something that we can use to stiffen a battle belt.

As the title states, looking for 1-2 yards.

Anyone have any to spare, or know where to get it?

MMI Textiles has all the great grey. 10yd is the minimum. They have web, velcro, elastic, etc...
