  1. Leather Die Press

    Tandy will take the faulty ones back...replacing them with a new set or full refund as far as i know
  2. Leather Die Press

    I bought a similar press , made in China, from a US distributor and the dies are horrible . The Line 20 and 24 caps would get stuck in the die and i would have to pry them out. The line #16 dies are usable but very finicky. I also got dies for eyelets along with a bunch of eyelets and they are pretty much useless...they get flatten because the dies are not machined properly. The press itself was badly finished and had rough edges ...poor quality built but did the job somehow. I was hoping to replace the expensive Tandy press along with it's dies but it wasn't worth it I assume there are many Chinese makers of these presses/dies , some better then others, but i will never buy another one unless i can get may hands on it and see how it performs

  4. I didn't touch anything else ...i know my limitations...lol...
  5. I had the same problem stitching some of my wallets with the CB 4500 until i had another needle plate made that was a bit narrower and i shaved off a bit the feed dog to fit properly in it. I am using the same set up as you as far as needle/thread combination and same leather thickness and never had that issue anymore. 3 years ago i posted pictures of the new needle plate and as far as i remember , few forum members bought them and were happy with the results.They weren't as fancy as the ones posted by Uwe but they work . If i were you , i would probably stitched this lot by hand just because there are less then 15 stitches at a time. A Tippman Boss would be great for these Here are the pictures

  11. New projects

    Because of the distressed look of the leather used for the larger bag , i thought leaving the edges unburnished will look better

  13. New projects

    Here is an improved version of the smaller pouch. I added a card pocket on the back , made the flap longer adding a pocket on the inside too. All hand stitched using #138 thread and the new set of Wuta irons ( 3.85mm) i got few weeks ago. Any critiques especially regarding my stitching are appreciated Thank you !
  14. Wuta Stitching Irons

    I am still trying to improve my saddle stitch using stitching irons Here is the front (left side) and the back (right side) .It looks like the i was not holding the irons perpendicularly when punching the holes and the back is not as straight as the front. Critiques and suggestions are more than welcome. Thank you !
  15. Wuta Stitching Irons

    Here is a simple card holder made using the Wuta pricking irons...the #207 thread seems a bit to heavy on this one
