  1. Looking to buy a used boss stitcher at a reasonable price, thanks, Bryce
  2. Fireworks, I am interested in buying your machine would you please contact me, my email is brycew74@gmail.com or you can call or text me at (208) 650-1021 thanks
  3. those look really slick
  4. What are everyones thoughts on using a limed hide for braiding a rope?
  5. For most of my hides i cut the whole thing in to 10 or 12 inch circles, for a couple reasons. 1. I get more consistent string depth as mentioned above. 2. You can store a whole lot of rawhide cut u that way in a rubbermaid tub with a few extra air holes in it to keep moisture from building up so if space happens to be a factor for you as it was for me for a long time this really helps.

  6. My opinion for what it is worth would be to find a young custom maker that is trying to build their reputation, you should be able to find someone that would build you a Roughout that fits in your budget, i would sooner ride a plain handmade saddle than a tooled up factory rig
  7. if you find the lime method does not work for you you can also streach the hide with the hair on and scrape it with a knife or sprinkle dry ashes on the hair side and scrape the hair off with a stick, these are my prefered methods
  8. Google Navajo knitting needles that's what my fiance uses
  9. Opinions on where the rigging goes on over or under the swell cover I've seen it done both ways what are your thoughts?
  10. Montana horseman saddlemakeing school in Belgrade Montana has a 6 week course that I think a few members of this forum have been to they also have a really good website
  11. Hey guys im needing either a good quality side or a couple large blemish free rounds of rawhide asap, any good leads would be appreciated, wish I could make my own but where I am living now that is not an option, thanks in advance, Bryce
  12. Saw a video once of someone who used a dremel engraving tool and enlarged the collet to fit bevelers and such, might be a more inexpensive way to try it out
  13. I dig the braided horn and cantle, what edge braid did you use for them?
  14. I haven't seen one like that but you might post this in the braiding forum
  15. Might try making a shot bag too mine is just a little leather pouch that I filled with bbs till it was pretty tight and sewed shut makes a nice "paperweight" that won't mark up your work
