  1. This is how I did it.
  2. I did this holster for Deputy_hookem on instagram. The image is of his hip hop CD cover.
  3. Thanks for the info. I was pretty sure that I was going to have to stitch them together just wanted to make sure.
  4. A buddy of mine asked me to make him a set of reins that are 9 feet long. It seems pretty straight forward except I will need to splice in a section to make the 9 feet. Would it be best to slice glue and rivet or skive glue and sew? Thanks for any advice.
  5. So I have three different color threads for my boss. White, red, and dark brown. When I use the red and brown on my test pieces they run perfect. Start on my project and the top thread starts shredding and a huge know on the bobbin side. If I change to my white and make ko adjustments it runs perfect. Any suggestions on why this might be happening?
  6. You might get a better response if you post this in the sewing machine sub forum. Good luck.
  7. My Boss was doing the same thing. Changed the needle double checked tension. Bingo Bango bobs your uncle.
  8. That's what I thought thanks
  9. Does anyone know if these built on the same frame? Will one pattern work for the other? Thanks
  10. Thanks for emailing them Dwight. After putting in a new needle and readjusting my presser foot tension it seems to work a lot better. I haven't really had a chance to put a bunch of time into since my 3 year old just his tonsils removed as well as we are trying to move. Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your machine now. Thanks for all the help.
  11. A friend a work bought one of these and wanted a pancake cross draw for it. I informed him I would need the firearm to make the holster. He told me that he had spent $2700 + tax for his and that he would need to stay with it. I told him that was fine. When he asked me for a price I told him that it would be $270 for the holster. He looked me square in the eye and said "You know I can get a Uncle Mikes holster for like 20 bucks" I responded and said " That is true but this is a custom holster and i will have several hours into making it" long story short he told me that was way too much and that he was just going to buy a cheaper holster to carry it around. A month later he told me that he bought a holster from MerNickle for 350 plus tax.
  12. So I bought new needles on Friday and they just got here. I paid for 2 day shipping so I could get orders done. I received an email on Monday saying they shipped and I should have them on Wednesday. I have to say I am not very impressed with Tippman's customer service. I have called them several times es and either get put on hold forever or I am told I will get a call back from a technician but never hear back.
  13. I changed bobbins back to the one that worked. Not much improvement. When I bought my machine he said that the needles were mixed new/used. I am going to buy new needles and junk all the ones I have. Do I need to buy needles from Tippmann or can I get them from some place local? This is the back of my machine. It looks to be in place but I can see some has marks to the right of the bushing. Is that normal or has it moved?
  14. I am at my wits end! I have been trouble shooting my machine for several days. I had it working perfect I then changed to a full bobbin to stitch a belt and can't get it to work right. It wants to skip stitches and in the moments that it is working the length of stitch is not consistent. I have changed the needle as well as oiled everything. I have called Tipp man in the past but never hear back from them. Can any one help. I am using 277 with a 200 needle.
  15. Thanks to Colt Hammer less I was able to get this 1911 crossdraw done for a customers father. I wore for a day or two and found it to be very comfortable.
