Hello guys! Starting today i'll try to posts some of my works and other stuff, cheers! And, nice to know you guys! Lets share a thing or two!
I line my collars with Napa leather ( glue and stitch).. And am wondering if I condition leather before dyeing it will the neatsfoot oil prevent the glue from sticking to the lining?

It seems to only happen when I use the USMC black dye from Fiebings.
What should I use for a conditioner..?
I line my collars with Napa after they are dyed and embellished by glueing and stitching. I did read somewhere that using neatsfoot oil will prevent glue from adhering to the leather if it was put on the underside. True?

Try, before you bend the leather to dip in warm water, that usually works.
Just soften before you bend. Meats foot won't hurt but it will hamper the gluing process.
I use Wickett and craig show harness and that has so much oil and tallow in it it seldom cracks...
Hope this helps.

Can anyone tell me what product is very good for waterproofing veg tan dog collars? I am using Aussie conditioning cream as a last step before they are sent out the door. Is there a better conditioner as well?
My issues so far have been spotting on either end of the collar strip. I'm really not too sure how much to use of the deglazed or how long to leave it on? Does the leather have to be bone dry before I go ahead and stain it!? Thanks!
Can anyone give me any hints to use when I need to de glaze my leather? The strips are for dog collars so they are maximum 2" wide. Any hints or brand names are much appreciated ! Thanks. !
