Wall upholstery tool kit
In the Thoman’s wall upholstery tool kit, we have 6 hand tools. You will use them at different stages of the installation. These hard to find specialty fabric tucking products have stainless steel plates but also, have excellent wood handles. In total the set has 5 strong American built plus the bonus the plastic spatula. The tools are presented in the order of use in a project.
Closer look at the Thoman Kit.
To begin with, we have the Tacker. It has a special flat plate with a 5-inch handle. Use it in the beginning, when stretching and fitting the fabric in the track. So, this tool tacks the fabric from place to place around a wall or a panel.
The Angle Tacker compared to the one described above has a bent blade. It facilitate tacking in hard place. A useful tool for working close to a ceiling and floor.
Next, there is a Rocky which has an 11″ working blade. Rocky is designed for inserting the fabric after it is in the correct place. Rock it back and forth for pushing the fabric in the track. All your fingers fit comfortably inside the handle. Please note the spatula plate could be sharp when brand new. We recommend to sand down the sharp edges with very fine sandpaper. Always use caution with thin fabric.
Speed roller provides quick and steady insertion of the fabric in the straight line. A very short video of the hand tool is available. You can read more about speed roller soon since it is sold separately. Don’t use it tight arch doors or windows, only in straight lines or large curve.
Once you finish working a large space, you will need to reach small area. Take you Bay Leaf and push the fabric in the track with the tip of the tool.
Lastly, we include in the tool kit, our plastic spatula. The plastic spatula works by delicate moldings. Of course, it will not last as long as the other heavy duty spatulas. Besides, if you need more, you are able to buy some by the piece.
For your repeated upholstery projects consider our high quality kit. It is a good value for 6 items.
