How To Pick The Best Steering Wheel

Featured

The steering wheel leather covers not only protect the steering wheel against daily wear or sun damage but also greatly improve the driving experience by providing excellent grip for better handling.

First, take the leather steering wheel cover and extend it to the entire steering wheel. Make sure the temperature in your car is not too hot or cold, as the skin moves easily in hot climates and becomes less flexible in cold climates. Place the cap on the bottom of the steering wheel and extend it to the sides. Do not forget to use your fingers to spread it over the top of the wheel. At this point, you must be careful not to touch the seam firmly, where you can easily break it. Check it twice to see if it is carefully aligned so that it is perfectly in the place where it is supposed to be. This is usually above the previous sewing site, but you may want to have a little more forward or backwards. Consistency is important here because a seam that can cause it to be installed inside the edge of the installation process is more difficult. A quick tip is to reduce the torque during your run so you can pull evenly from the front and back.

Carefully cut the remaining thread to about a quarter of an inch, but make sure it is not too close. Be sure to use the corresponding holes directly from each other. To start stitching, be sure to cross the thread and under the seam, as well as undo the other side. The important thing to keep in mind is that you will have to cross the threads, in the same way, every time.

I have already reached the first to speak at the wheel. To cross the spokes of the wheel, use the seam loop through the loop around the thread and at the next hole on both sides of the spoke wheel. Pull each stitch as hard as possible with a constant and constant pull. Do not worry about breaking the tarp, as it is designed to require a lot of abuse. After reaching the other side of the steering wheel, lift the next pair of holes that you can close almost completely.

If the size of the leather wheel cover is correct, it will not stretch too long if you continue sewing. There will be few hits, but this is normal in the installation process. Once you reach the bottom again, hold the last stitches and shake them repeatedly underneath the original node while running the seam. After that, you should hook several knots and then cut off the excess seam. Be sure to leave at least a half-inch of a pagan knot stuck in the seam.  This guest post was bought to you by Ozzy Tyres Australia.

Raw inspiration: Loving Earth raw foods

Made in Australia

The Loving Earth story begins in rural India not far from Mumbai, where founding director Scott Fry had been working with the local Adivasi people on an organic farming project.  Many local farmers were selling their topsoil to brickmakers, since agriculture was not a viable source of income for them any longer.

Finding a way to support these people meant commercialising their commodities in a manner that both honoured them and allowed them to do what they had been doing for thousands of years.  Scott went on to Mexico, working with an indigenous Mayan co-operative to help them find a market for their coffee and cacao.  It became apparent that the only real asset many of these communities had in the modern world were these crops that their ancestors had domesticated.  It was the Olmecs, the ancestors of the Mayan cooperative that Scott was working with in Izapa, who first domesticated cacao thousands of years ago.

Three years later Scott was back in Melbourne, broke and with a child on the way, but full of inspiration…Loving Earth began in 2007.  Wonderfully, the business took off quickly by finding people who were looking for products which could fulfill these values.  Loving Earth has been trying to keep up with demand ever since!  The current facility in Campbellfield, Victoria is a far cry from the humble beginnings, which saw them using a little bakery at night to make chocolate, operating the business from home, and hand wrapping chocolate bars in the kitchen.

Everything has come full circle for Loving Earth.  They’ve been able to go and work with the Aboriginal community of Nyul Nyul people up in the Kimberleys.  Now doing exactly what Scott envisioned back in India, taking the manufacturing of products back to indigenous communities.

Loving Earth’s range available at Biome includes: organic, raw and fair trade chocolate, Luvju superfood bar, dehydrated Kale Chips and raw organic cacao powder.   Please do visit and browse all the Loving Earth raw awesomeness.…

The Redecker Company 75 years & growing

Meet the maker

For 75 years the Redecker Company has been family owned and operated, and is now in its third generation. The company was started by Friedrich Redecker who learnt the craft of brush making Soest School for the Blind after he lost his sight at only age four. Through his entrepreneurial spirit Friedrich built up a small company over time and was able to provide for his wife and three sons.

When Friedrich passed away at age 72, it seemed that that was the end of his small brush making company as none of his sons wished to carry on the tradition. His youngest son Gernot Redecker and his wife decided they would work off the remaining materials and sell the brushes at a local market stall. All the brushes were sold out during the first weekend of the market stall – more materials were ordered.  Soon the little company that none of the sons wished to continue was booming and the Redecker legacy lived on.

The company grew quickly and expanded out of the family cellar into a renovated barn and finally into new offices and warehouse space.  The Redecker Company was no longer just selling at small market stalls they were wholesaling internationally and exhibiting at the top trade fairs. Friedrich would never have thought his little brush making business would become so big.

Change and ongoing development have always been good company tradition at Redecker. In January 2009 Felix Redecker, one of the two children, joined the company. The continuation of the “Redecker family tradition” into the third generation has been secured.…

Five tips that will reduce your energy bills in no time

Eco friendly

The We Live It team has put together five simple and helpful tips that will help you to reduce your next electricity bill. While you may not be able to acheive all five each small change makes a difference to your energy bill and the environment we all share.

1.   Convert your incandescent & halogen light bulbs to energy efficient LED light bulbs.

LED technology has a come a long way in recent years and now LED light bulbs can produce the same quality of light that premium halogens produce for about a fifth of the power.  We recommend the Brightgreen and Starlux ranges, both of which are very popular with our customers.

2.   Use energy meters to keep track of how much electricity you are using.

Using an energy meter to track how much electricity you are using helps you decide which energy hungry appliances need to take a break.  You’ll be amazed at just how much some non essential appliances are costing you.  Todae stocks the A+ Intelligent Power Meter which shows the user electricity usage in real time.

3.   Unplug appliances at the wall when possible.

While it might not be all that much a lot of appliances still use electricity while turned off and plugged in.  Appliances with ‘Stand-by’ mode are the biggest culprits; so when possible unplug the appliances that you aren’t using this minute.  It might not start as much but the savings will soon add up.

4.   When possible go without the Air-conditioner or Heater.

When you’re hot try finding a breeze and or use an electric fan over the air-conditioner and when it’s cold put on another layer of clothing before you crank up the heating.  But sometimes you need the air-con or heating and we get that, but hopefully this way you’ll enjoy the luxury even more.

5.   Switch to low consumption appliances.

Though the initial investment might seem a bit expensive, by switching to energy efficient appliances such as dryers, refrigerators, and washing machines you could save a lot of electricity and money in the long run.  All appliances sold in Australia should come with an energy rating out of 5 stars, try to aim for the highest star rating within your budget and specifications for the best return on investment.   

What do you do to save energy and lower your electricity bill?…

Goodbyn meet the maker

Meet the maker

Erin Franczyk and Rob Grennan wanted to reinvent the way kids ate lunch.  They wanted to make lunchtime easier, more inspiring and fun for kids and parents alike.  They knew the new lunchboxes had to be sustainable and have a long product life, unlike the disposable lunch bags and containers that have found their way into the school backpack.  From the beginning Erin and Rob decided to be as transparent as possible about their decisions as a company: how they would produce, ship and get their product to the market – Goodbyn was born.

Goodbyn researched kids’ eating habits so that the concept behind their lunchboxes could be brought to life.  They put together a team of people who had a unique background in research-driven, modern product design as well as an expertise and design aesthetic that meshed with Erin and Rob’s beliefs.  This team of talented people enabled Goodbyn to to make lunchtime smarter and more inspiring.

While they started small and have only been in business since 2008 they are now selling their smarter lunchboxes in over 25 countries.  Goodbyn was originally an American brand made in the USA, but as the company continues to devote itself to affordable sustainable solutions it decided to move its manufacturing overseas.  They are working with well established factories that maintain high-safety standards that are working towards sustainable practices. Goodbyn imports only the forecasted amounts that they will sell domestically in the USA – they ship on demand amounts directly to their distributors around the world from their factories – thereby actually lessening the carbon footprint.

Erin’s deep involvement in the disciplines of design research and visual design gave Goodbyn the product and consumer focused design principals that have helped it suceed. Her fluid understanding of human factors and technology provided her an unrivaled sense of what makes a product succeed and fail in today’s hyper-aware consumer markets. As a mother of three children, she has personally experienced the challenges of daily school lunch preparation and been frustrated by the inadequacies of the current products on the market. She also benefits from having her own “in-house” product testing team.

Rob’s history as a multi-disciplined designer of print, exhibit, wayfinding systems, interactive interfaces, coupled with his extensive experience with product research brought many vital skills to the beginnings of the Goodbyn design process. His broad understanding of visual systems and marketing channels provided Goodbyn an integral viewpoint on consumer markets. His ability to implement large-scale, multi-phase projects—with teams of graphic designers, product designers, architects and clients—gave him a bird’s eye perspective of every detail, from supply chains to product launches.…
