  1. Right up the road from Lubbock, is Panhandle Leather loccated in Amarillo. They handle Herman Oak along with some imported stuff. Give Jim Blaine Kinney a call, good people. Hope thishelps, Terry
  2. Check with Rocky Mountain Supply. They have some really nice French calf and goat that is veg tan, and light weights Terry
  3. If you use Grade A Hermn Oak, you are not going to find any better. The leathers shown on the website you mentioned, are not to be tooled on. It is like comparing oranges and apples. The answer to your question depends on what you are trying to accomplish. There are many companies that handle those kinds of leather. Do a search in the "Suppliers section", and you get an idea of what is available. Decide what you are trying to do, and then go from there. Interms of the swivel knife, none better thn the SK 3. Terry
  4. There are no federal capital gain taxes on your pnrimary residence. Don't know about state or if part of property was used for different purposes. Terry
  5. 16 oz, good all-around weight for tooling. Heavier for basket weaving or simply use more force
  6. One other piece of advice is get you some wool, either synthetic or real, to remove the excess antique. You can't get it all off with a rag, I learned the hard way. If you get all the excess off, you shouldn't have that darker appearance. Terry
  7. Yes, I meant Fiebibgs, hate auto correct. I don't think the first picture was dyed, just the antique effect. Second picture probably. I have always dyed before antique, and if I remember, that is the sequence outlined in the book. Hope this helps, Terry
  8. I will bet it is "Sheridan Brown" and it is put out by Findings.TerryT
  9. Chicago Medical has them on Ebay, different sizes. I bought the 8 oz for less than $10.00 Terry
  10. Clearlac
  11. A refillable felt pen sold by Lisa Sorrel. She is a sponsor on this site. Terry
  12. Put shipping tape on flesh side. Terrt
  13. It ain't Neat Lac, guaranteed. Springfield Leather, along with others, sell Clearlac which is Neatlac Terry
  14. It will eventually come loose regardless of kind or brand. Stitch it after gluing, then you will have something that is permanent. Terry
  15. Have you checked with Rocky Mountain Leather Supply? They are handling full spools of .8 & 1 mm for $50.00 a spool
