Jeremiah Watt/ Horseshoe Brand Tools
Posted 28 December 2008 - 03:33 PM
PS- I am in love Jeremiah Watt's work! He has some of the prettiest saddles on his site (ranch2arena.com). I kinda like the 'contemporary' edge to some of them, not to bound in the tradition of sheridan carving, but with a definite nod to the classic.

In my opinion, Jeremiah Watt makes tools that are as good as or better than most on the market. He started making tools because he was dissatisfied with what he could find commercially so he got some of the old-time stuff and studied what made it great. I'd say that if you're sure this is something you are going to do for however many years you have left, his tools will probably last at least that long. They are on par with King, Hackbarth, and beard. That said, they're not priced for hobby stampers.

I have some tools from Jeremiah too. I would make a recommendation however. You live on the east side. Why not call Jeremiah directly? You don't have to have a resale number, will have them a lot faster, shipping will be less, and you will be talking to folks who know something about the tools if you have a question. Colleen and Jeremiah are way easier to deal with for me. Another guy that makes good tools but doesn't always get the press is Wayne Jueschke in Elko. If you like geometrics, Wayne has some centers, blocks, and baskets nobody else makes.
Do you know if he has a catalog or contact info?
EDIT: By he I mean Wayne Jueschke, sorry.
