    Sweet Belfastboy, Sweet steaming setup! But I, couldn't help notice that the three hat blocks have three different surface treatments. One looks like it was coated with a polyurethane or varnish, another looks like it has no sealant or coating at all, and the third looks like it has an oil...

    I I was just thinking about what size 3D printer would be needed to print out a flange. My hat size is 57cm and I prefer a brim on a fedora to be between 2 5/8 and 2 3/4.

    What is the largest dimension of a flange that can be used to make a 2 5/8” brim for an average sized head?

    Love it! Looks very sharp. I have been doing something similar. I have a small stack of printed silk tie panels from way back when I was in the necktie business. Can't remember why I salvaged them or why I held onto them for so long, but I am glad that I did. I ordered some pug hooks and have...

    Incredible. I was predicting you were going to punch a vent pattern. Didn't expect you to fill it - and do it so perfectly.

    Why a chain stitch as opposed to a lockstitch? Was wondering if someone could help me understand why I’ve only seen reeded sweatbands sewn in using a chain stitch. Anyone here using a machine use a lockstitch? Thanks! -Loren

    Thank you! Have you ever ordered the Sea Glass color from them? I was wondering how it compared - in color - to their Sage.

    Thanks for the info Belfastboy - that helps. I will likely start with a block that has no reinforcement and no recess, and see how I like it. Take care, -Loren

    Belfastboy, On the blocks you have purchased, do they have any sort of reinforcement around the hole? Do you feel reinforcement is needed? Thanks, -L

    Perfect! picture says it all! I am going to attempt to make a few wood blocks and see how they feel without the void.

    Hat block question… I understand the purpose of the center hole on the underside of a hat block. However, I don’t understand the purpose for the deep circular trough. Is it to make the block lighter? Maker it easier hold onto? Is there equipment that needs to be attached to the underside that...

    Hi Belfastboy, Once again, thank you! I’ll go through their ribbons to see if they have anything close enough to what I am looking for. Cheers, -L

    Hi Belfastboy, In the very short amount of time I have taken an interest in making hats, I too have noticed the availability dwindling. Unfortunately, I didn’t get interested early enough. If I remember correctly, Morse Brown only goes up to 38mm. I’m hoping demand is such that Morse or...
