How can I keep my leather gardening gloves clean?

Leather gardening gloves demand special treatment. In order to clean them, gently scrub with a pumice-based soap. Rinse, apply a leather protector, and then hang the gloves on the line to dry. Before they dry completely, put them on to restore their shape.

How to get pen off fake leather

Fake leather AKA Bonded leather markings is a fixable problem. First assumption is that the pen markations did not etch or scratch the leather. Leather color spray is available from the Mohawk Co for a variety of common leather colors. The goal is to mask the ink in this case. Should the leather be etched or scratched, there are flexible filling adhesives that fill marks in leathers and are heat cured. Following the fixing of a scratch the mark is then colored to match the furniture piece.

I have a new FY5618 and it keeps skipping stitches ... and on one piece of leather it will ... but if i put ANY other piece of fabric ... it wont!

the reason it may skip stitches on leather is because it cannot form a loop for the hook to pick up because of the closeness of the material, you must use a proper leather needle

Can sirius antennas be cut and spliced back together

If your antenna cable has been cut or severed, it can be repaired without the need for a replacement.

You will need the following things:

Small 600 degree soldering iron and solder.
Liquid flux for soldering the braid.
Small sizes of heat shrink tubing.
Small heat gun.
Small pliers, cutter, and Xacto knife.

1) The first step is to use the Xacto knife to cut both ends of the antenna cable so you have a clean end.

2) Using the Xacto knife roll the cable on a board and gently cut all around the cable to cut the outer insulation. Remove about 1/2 inch of the insulation from each end.

3) Push the braid back to expose the center wire and gently roll the cable and cut the center insulation to expose about 1/10 inch of the center wire. With your small long nose pliers, bend the center wire into a small hook shape.

4) Repeat all the above steps on the other end of the wire.

5) Put a 1 inch piece of heat shrink tubing on one end ( the black piece), and a 1/4 inch piece of heat shrink (the white piece) on the center conductor. Look at the picture to see this.

5) Hook the two ends together. Gently squeeze the hooks closed and solder them together. Be very careful when soldering this. Be quick so you do not apply to much heat and cause the heat shrink tubing to shrink on the side where you do not want it to be.

6) Slide the small white heat shrink to cover the cooled solder joint you just made and use the heat gun to shrink the tubing in place.

7) Now push the braids back together to cover over the connection you just made. Try make the braid smooth together by GENTLY rolling the cable between your fingers. Carefully solder the braid. A little liquid flux on the braid prior to soldering helps the solder flow and makes it look better.

8) Slide the final piece of heat shrink tubing over the braid and shrink it with the heat gun.
