Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
The hanger formly known as "hammock engineer".
Great looking tarp mate. Fantastic effort. When I finished up mine everyone recomended side pulls and it was the best idea since the one to make the tarp. Good luck with it and may it rain only when you want it to.
Australian made tarps and custom gear.
Another thing that sometimes gums up the works is not enough thread on the bobbin - seems to mess with the tension.
You can do the oiling your self. Your sewing machine manual will tell you where the oil needs to be applied. The important thing is you just need a VERY SMALL amount of oil applied to each location.
Just before you oil the machine I would wipe the bobbin carriage area with a dry cloth to get any fabric dust/ debris removed.
The last thing that I noticed the with sil nylon, is that you need to keep the fabric taught (not stretched) while sewing it. When I do this, I donít get missed/ loose stitches.
I hope this helps.
another thing I've found with sewing silnylon is that the needle will get dull really fast!!! and a dull needle wont sew as well and can miss stitches. So replace your needle with another and I will use a smaller needle size too. Make sure you're using 100% polyester thread (not polyester covered cotton) and use the same thread on the bobbin.
