    I found a nice home ( cabin in the woods ) for a wool, looped carpet Rem. and the customer was not half bad himself :).... local musician / comedian who kept me entertained for a few days......... burned me a few CD's as a tip.:cool:

    Decided to turn and tac at the UN-even slate and open stairs, had some fun on those steep basement steps.....not !...... Half the woods made it onto the old carpet, pad plus sub-floor so the Ridgid vac worked double time.

    I tried reducer tape, to hold the turn down on the bottom steps and installed them as singles, due to stiffness. Thank goodness the Shark Steamer is working, but the ' Nate hair dryer ' was available, just in case.;)

    Enjoy the Grainy pictures :eek: sorry !

    Kinda light carpet for the woods. Nice work though.

    Oh man, done my share of those back in the day. Stair case barely more then a ladder, no fun, but looks good!

    Jimmy boy ! Really ? o_O come on !.......I appreciate the acknowledgement,
    but IMHO its not worthy of ' The Spot Light ' maybe, more like
    ' The Candle Light of Flooring Professionalism ' :p

    Thanks Man !

    Another trick on the turn and tack is to score the crease with a screwdriver on that stiff stuff. Looks great.

    I use that trick for doing turned stair runners to keep it straight.

    :old:

    Update,
    I got a complaint, pilling and fuzzing by the Dr. table....... Inherent quality of the wool or defect, that's my question ? and how can you tell the difference.

    I told him, inherent quality, that sheep farmers are still trying to cross breed and get them to grow longer fur, or is it hair ? :rolleyes:

    Anywho, may need a site visit/ picture, but I think he's ok with my funny explanation. Any other advise I should give him ?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Wool sheds a lot for a while, might be his vacuum too. Is it a high use area? I have seen some that fuzz too much though.

    I always heard it was the length of hair, and Jons country had the best wool.

    Get out the elactric shears?

    I've always wanted one of those carpet planers they have for shearing carpet.
