  1. Replacing copper anvil on Osborne 155 rotary punch

    I believe the tubes unscrew. Not sure about the anvil though.
  2. Missing items

    Are you still working on the site, because the adult section and photos are not showing in my account.
  3. re-read my post and this is what I can use to create the pattern. And Yes, we do need the gun
  4. 4 or 6 inch barrel? Also, that model is a .455 cal and was generally issued to military forces with a canvas holster and shell bag. I have seen a leather holster for our RCMP as well, which look a little like an 1800's US Cavalry holster
  5. Fastening A Single Strap Button?

    copper or antique brass rivet would be in keeping with the medieval look.
  6. Tinker, where in Calgary do you get it from? Buckskin?
  7. Homemade Strap Cutter Tutorial

    sounds like a good tutorial, but without the photos for context.....

  9. I would like to know the shipping to Canada, and if to high for you would, consider paying it
  10. I would add the conch first, but then I like to hide any hardware attachments.
  11. Winter Mitten Pattern

    For my fellow Canadians...don't use Springfield to order patterns. They have no shipping method to Canada, so you end up in an endless loop. Try somewhere else guys.
  12. 25B, Sorry about the late reply. You said you searched Google and got no result, understandable as it is spelled "puttees". Almost every army in the world has worn them at one time or another. During WWI, Belgium/France/Germany/Britian/Canada all worn them. I am not aware of leather ones being used. Almost every example I have ever see is a traditional puttee 9' x 3" and made of wool serge which was wrapped from ankle to knee, with a cotton cloth tape 2' x 1/2" attached at the end to tuck in and secure the legging. Heavy canvas and/or leather gaiters were worn by officers, messenger riders or trench runners. I have a set of each from WWI that belonged to family that served and survived the "Great War". Hope this helps you, as I have tried researching US clothing and equipment from that same era, but am also, having problems finding references as well. Best of luck to you.
  13. Briefcase Kit

  14. Axe Sheath

    Awesome Job as usual Jim and for a first project 1055, I would say bloody well done.
