Rubbing webbing tool
2 inch width 12 inch long and 3/4inch thick piece of hard wood. Cut the two slits with table saw,
these cuts were made so I can put the rubber webbing through them. And then round the bottom end.
Weave the webbing for strength. put the webbing through the two slits in the wood tool and roll the end
over the top of the tool to secure the webbing from slipping out of the tool. Place the cut end with rounded
edge of the seat and rowel the tool down.
Stretch the webbing down and then staple it securely. Leave about 5/8 inch past the staples and cut it.
Then fold the webbing back over itself and staple it again. This will stop any elastic strands from
from stretching loose.
On this particular job the customer wanted the seat area to give a lot!
Normally we use the brown seat webbing which is extremely strong.
