    Okay gang... I'm throwing my hat in to thread-injector ring. I just picked up a 1965 Gimbel's machine that works perfectly and weighs a ton. Simple straight-stitching no zig-zag. Will that do for snake skins? If so, you can send me the material and I'll do them for free. Please keep in mind these will be like my third DIY project save for a few stuff sacks. You have been warned. Let me know.

    free set of tulle ss

    The catch: Total length of ss is ~130". Tried to use up some remnant tulle. Figured it would be cutting it close. Ended up a bit short for the OES DeLux Spinn.

    Lazy River Road has 1st dibs since he started this thread.

    pm me with a shipping address.

    For what it is worth, I use one long snake skin instead of 2 smaller ones and come at it from one end. I don't get an air pocket in the middle that way. Also, I used Tulle - cheap, easy to find and replace if nec., and works great!

    I have to mention- hand sewing would be more than adequate for this task- double fold the ends and run a basting (biggish) stitch across and back- going through all the layers, hold the long sides together (pins? tape?) go down and back; alternately a back stitch or even a whip stitch will suffice; turn inside out and you are done...a pleasant evenings work in front of the TV or fire...just a thought! KM (who once hand stitched about 48 ft of turned under linen to finish a dresses seams in one afternoon)
