Another project to make me try something new. The colors are brown and copper(not orange).
4/13/2012 Quiet Case for Socket Set Part 1
The old plastic case for my socket set is about "done for". One latch
is broken, the second will break soon, and I think the hinge isn't far
behind. This set is the set that stays in the car all the time. The
sockets rattle when I drive on a gravel road. 4/27/2012 Figure 8 Chest Harness-Version 1
Time for a quiet case. Today's goal was to see if I could even
build something out of fabric that would hold sockets. I was able to
make one holder for one set of sockets. The holder rolls up to hold the
sockets in place. I plan to sew Velco to the back of the "roll". The
Velcro will hold the set in place in the final case. I also plan to add
a label strip inside the holder - just above the sockets...as well as
on the outside. I won't add the Velcro or labels until all the socket
holders are completed.
I'll be working on the rest of the
holders this week. I don't know if I'll get to the actual case by next
Friday, but I'll try.
This is my take on a "Figure 8" type chest harness. It has
the adjustment buckles on the torso side to keep buckles from being
under backpack straps. It has a large backpad with an adjustable
strap that attaches to the seat harness.
I think the backpad is probably too big, but I'll
have to do some testing on rope first. It surprised me how
comfortable it is to walk around in. The shoulder straps also
stay in place much better than I thought they would. Testing on
rope should be fun.
built this harness in anticipation of a series of videos I will be
making to show my approach to chest harness design. I needed a
"Figure 8" type harness and didn't have one.
