  1. Tanner Leather Goods out of Portland, OR.
  2. That is goshdarn brilliant Wiz, thanks.
  3. Good to hear, thanks for the replies. Most of my stitching is going to be 1/8th from the edge (all belts and wallets, no holsters or saddles). I'm assuming I need a slotted plate throat plate, but that would compromise my reverse, no? The pieces will mostly be 2 or 3 layers of 4-5oz, or 2 layers of 10 oz for belts.
  4. Hey everybody, me again. I think I want to pick up a heavy duty leather stitcher. I've grown pretty accustomed to putting over edge stitches on my work, like this one on a bifold I made - http://www.flickr.co...983522611. If you sew the seam with a machine can you overedge and lock the stitches off with a saddle stitch assuming you leave yourself enough thread? It sounds like a pain in the butt but I'd like to try if feasible.
  5. I have some repetitive stress injuries in my back and punching holes is the step that aggravates it the most. Is it possible to convert a lockstitch machine to an awl puncher only? I have a 111w155 and I'd like to put a diamond awl in the needle bar to replace hand punching but so far it doesn't look like it'll fit. Any prior art on the scene?
