  1. Does anyone know where, or if, there is a reasonably priced supplier of custom rivets. I am looking for someone to make rivets, that have my logo stamped into them.
  2. Hey Everyone, Thanks for the responses! I am sewing mostly wallets, belts, bags that sorta thing. Possibly a holster or knife sheath here and there. I like the ones with the cylinder arms rather than the flat bed machines. I would say that the absolute most I would ever sew is two, possibly 3 layers of 8/9 oz veg tan. (and that would be pretty rare). Also, I have about 1600 bucks, but around 2000 is my limit for right now. @Jlsleather, I would love to find a good used one, but Texas would be way to far for me to travel to get one, I live in NC. @Wizcrafts, Does the CB3200 have something similar to the servo motor on the techsew? That is one thing that I really liked when looking into machines. Thanks
  3. Hi All! Ok, I am finally in the market to get my first sewing machine. I have saved around 1600 bucks, and done some research. I am leaning toward saving a little more and getting a techsew 3650HD machine. I realize that this may be more machine than I actually need, but I'd rather have to much than not enough. Are there any other machines I should know about, or anything I should take into consideration.
  4. I am having some problems figuring out the size I should make a belt when I just have someones pants size. If anyone has any pointers, they would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Is there a specific type of leather that I should use for dog collars and harnesses? Can Veg tanned, tooling leather be used? I had a conversation with an older leatherworker, and he suggested that I could not use veg tanned, tooling leather.
  6. I found a couple different "Distressed" look items, that I would like to try and reproduce the look of the item, and cannot figure out exactly how to do that. If some one has an Idea, I would be really apreciative. They look lik they may be two different, but similiar, techniques. Again, any help would be appreciated.
  7. Thank you tons! How many 1.5 inch straps can i expect to get out of a back? (on Average)
  8. Just wondering on average how many 1 1/2 Straps I can expect out of the different cuts of leather (ie. sides, shoulder, backs, etc.) Also, I have been getting 7/8 ounce leather for belts, but have been thinking that maybe 9/10 ounce might be a little better, just wondering people opinions. Thanks for any input.
