So RSGary, recently started a thread about using fabric adhesive to set his hems before he actually stitches them. It makes a great looking rolled hem and since I am "Hem Challenged", I thought I would give his technique a try.
Then I got to thinking ( I know, I know, even my wife says its a dangerous thing for me to do). Why couldn't you completely eliminate the need to sew a seam or hem and use an adhesive.... After all, the materials we use (nylon, polyester) are all man made and surely there would be glue available to bond this material together. So that got me to searching the Internet which led me to this video on YouTube.
Apparently ProLiteGear is looking into this technology and the author of this video indicates that this is where the industry is heading.
So what experience does anyone have with using something other then a thread injector to make your gear? I'd love to hear about what you have tried, did it work, did it fail, what suggestions if any you might offer or even just your opinion on what folks like us will be doing in 5-10 years as we Make our own gear.
I know that Thread Injectors will always be there... But what other technologies might we be using?
