Topic: Mailbag Needs EMS
Message: Posted by: firenmagic (Jun 26, 2013 09:24PM)
Evening folks,

My mailbag escape is in terrible need of treatment. The grommets are coming away from the bag, tried to wire them back, but now the
rod is getting hung on the tied wire. No one around here (hardware store) carries grommets this large. Ideas??

I can sell you some. PM me with the size. If you know he size, by number, that's even better. You can also measure the inside hole diameter. (I.D.)

I recommend cutting 3 inches off the top, folding the top over and putting all new grommets in so they look more professional.

You'll have to preen the grommets together with the ball end of a Ball Peen hammer unless you have the special spreader and anvil. but it can be done pretty easy. P.M. me or call tomorrow after lunch.

Jay

Or ask at your local canvas supply place.

I used a local tent and awning shop.
