  1. Don't know if you've tried hooked blades in your utility knife or not, but they've worked very well for me. I started using them after getting some Herman Oak leather due to the difficulty of cutting it and it helped me out a lot. It's something inexpensive to try if you haven't already. The link below is the style I'm talking about. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Unbranded-5-Heavy-Duty-Hook-Utility-Knife-Blades-RWK16V/204156401
  2. Where is this located? The add says "Waco-movable". If it's in or near Waco, I'd love to be able to look at what you have. Also, is the Juki a walking foot machine? Thanks
  3. I think your talking about T-nuts, pics in link below. I get mine from the hardware store. http://www.homedepot.com/Tools-Hardware-Hardware-Fasteners-Nuts-Tee-Nuts/h_d1/N-5yc1vZc2a4/h_d2/Navigation?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&searchNav=true
  4. That look very nice.
  5. Thanks guys. I'll try sandwiching the t-nuts next time.
  6. I've seen several done that way and it looks cleaner with the t-nut sandwiched. I just thought if the t-nut got damaged it would be easy to change this way. I don't know if there's any real need to worry about that or not, I never had it happen. Have you had any trouble with t-nuts getting damaged and needing to be changed?
  7. I made this one for a guy at work. It's an IWB for a 4" XD. I haven't posted anything in a long time and thought I would share. It's built with 8oz Wickett & Craig with Angelus light brown A.
  8. It looks pretty good, definitely better than my first holster. How does your belt attachment work, hard to tell from the pic? Is it just loops or do you have snaps?
  9. I use Angelus Satin acrylic finisher sprayed on with an airbrush and have had good luck with it. I usually make two light coats.
  10. I have been using the Angelus Satin acrylic finisher sprayed with an airbrush and it does very well for me, i don't like the very shiny look of others I've tried. I usually spray 2 light coats. I don't think it will be waterproof though. Here's a picture of a holster with the Angelus Satin.
  11. Thanks. I think I'm going to try switch mine also. Seems like it would work better for me as the current set up just doesn't feel right.
  12. I'd be interested in seeing some more pictures of your set-up. Thanks for sharing.
  13. The holster looks good. I like the color and have been thinking about give the Tandy Pro Waterstain a try also. Do you cut it with something or just use it strait out of the bottle?
  14. http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=44825#entry281907 This is a thread he has going in the suppliers section. It says he is still having issues and I think it also gave contact info if you need to get in touch. Hope this helps. Bob
