Hercules 1575 foam cutter
with Bosch blade
" A good quality foam cutter makes shop life so much
easier, " says Whitney Carman, stressing that the key
word is quality. " Bosch is the best, " she says. " I've heard
about them, used them, my dad has an old one, but
they are very pricey-and worth it because they last forever. This is a Hercules 1575
and uses a Bosch blade. It
locks on, it's lightweight and
I bought it gently used for
$279 on Amazon. I've had
it for a year, and I'm very
happy with it (though I still
have my eye out for a used
Bosch someday). It cuts
like butter. Keep cans of
silicone on hand and keep
the blades clean. "

Pattern-X2™ Patterning Fabric
(woven polyethylene, translucent)
Krisha Plauche' says the " can't do without " item in her
shop is actually a patterning material she purchases
from Bainbridge. " It was originally called Pattern X
and it was clear, which was perfect, and now it is called
Pattern X version 2 material; it is a bit cloudy now so
you can't see through it as well but it still works for
our projects. " Onboard Interiors makes patterns for all
of its projects, says Plauche', which explains why the
patterning fabric is so important. " We bring it with us
in our work van everywhere, even though it is so hard
to travel with because it's heavy and long. The roll we
purchase is 72-inch lengths, which works well for large
areas and the bedding that we do. "

U-zipper template tool
Made out of a scrap piece of polycarbonate,
this tool allows employees to " draw four lines at
once for a perfect radius every time, " explains
Mike Johnson. The shop has two different
templates, one 12-inch radius for chain zippers,
and one 10-inch radius for coil zippers. " We
remove 3/8 of the poly from the center of the
U-zipper for easy sliding of the pulls and add a
rain flap to the outside of the panel. "

Tabletop and under-the-table
material roll racks
This easy-to-use tabletop rack is constructed by
putting a pipe in the center of the roll of material
and setting that into racks to support the roll.
" The underneath mount keeps the roll out of
the way to allow easy access to all four corners
of the table while working, " says Mike Johnson.
The shop uses metal J hooks for the underneath
mount. The tabletop racks are made from 2-by8-inch scraps with a notch cut in the center of
the top for the pipe to lie in. " Add your accessories like scissor holders, and clamp these racks to
the edge of the table, " says Johnson.
