Don't tempt me...like I need a reason to spend more money on "tools"

other things that can come into play are the sewing thread. bonded poly or nylon is best and 69 wt (weight) is what i use on webbing, i've tested webbing sewn with 46 wt where the sewing thread failed rather than the webbing. once sewn, webbing will usually fail lower than the manufactuer tensile spec.
