    Thanks, Joe.

    Maybe, but I'm not taking any chances!:)

    Thank you, Michael. As long as it hunts for hats like these it's fine with me!

    Awesome work!! As per usual.
    Wish I had sent Randal Alan a few profile specifications for my block, like you did.
    I like how your block makes for a super 90 degree squared up crown.
    Side to side mine looks good, but front and back it makes a hair bit of taper—and taper is the arch enemy of a good profile: in my humble opinion.

    I thought you had moved up to the sewing machine for binding?

    Great hats today, Joe, but you do realize that moving from WARs to TARs to quickly can cause stretch marks on your forehead.
    I read that in one of the FL threads...somewhere. ;-)

    LOL. So maybe that explains my warped sense of reality.

    Thank you buddy! I really like my RA block. It makes a great looking profile.

    Ha ha...yeah, my Singer 201. I still can't the hang of that thing. I get it all set up, take it for a test run, and I keep ending up with a bird nest on the underside. I can't seem to find that sweet spot for the tension setting.

    Make sure your bobbin is unwinding in the correct direction. (Thread should come off the bottom from right to left). Set your thread tension and presser foot tension on a scrap of similar thickness. Don’t start stitching with thread tails flapping in the breeze, use a leader! You should be good to go. Actually, I suppose for a brim binding, you’ll have to start ON the work so a leader won’t help. There’s another trick, a little hard to describe. PM me if you want me to explain it brother.
