I made my own as I wanted a few specifics to run the sil materials through. I have a commercial one that is good for the heavier side of things like corduras and japaras etc.Chezza wrote:Is there a reason you made your own lap seam folder?

I used to work at Camera Action (21 years) so spent a lot of time in those Lt Bourke St shops.
Tarptent has started using 30d from a different source. Still silnylon (non PU) but with a higher waterhead .
Henry has been fiddling with several types of fabrics but we are not confident as yet going lower than 30d.

I was able to try a quilt as well......just thinking I should have taken Evan up on his offer.
Late this arvo I spotted some of his tarps in shop in the CBD.
Oh and the craftsmanship in the workshop below was neat as well.
