  1. The deal is found at call them and ask for the "Sylvia Leather" deal. Since this deal was originally set up a few years ago it may indeed be 99.99 or so. But considering that Tandy charges over $200 for the machine and $100 for the dies I think this is a great deal. The dies are sized for the rivets. That said you could probably use a 7mm one to set a 6mm rivet, but considering the dies are so cheap, I recommend that you get the correct size.
  2. You did read that correctly. When I originally got my machine the ligne 20 snaps didn't work. But that was over 2 years ago so Tandy may have corrected the problem. Just after starting leather craft some kind soul sent me a big ol' bag of snaps... I'm talking like 500 or more. I won't have to buy any for years. (thanks again kind soul.... whoever you are) I suggest you buy a small pack of Tandy's and see if they work on your machine.
  3. I have personal experience and full on annoyance with this. Turns out Tandy's Ligne 20s are smaller by at least one millimeter and the result is a crushed cap or ring. I have other Ligne 24's that came from Lord knows where that work fine... haven't had much trouble with Tandy ligne 24s either. I guess in your case it's measure to see if it will fit. Or just try them on scrap.
  4. So nice to hear they took care of you. I bolted mine down right away and haven't had an issue with it. But I don't go all "Kong" on mine either. lol
  5. Yep, I think you need to shorten the throw of your handle. There's a screw or bolt type thing under the handle that adjusts. Adjust that out. Also make sure your rivet with the stem sits proud of the leather at least 1/16" . I've noticed that the rivets from Goldstar are typically for thinner leathers. Anything over 6oz will cause you problems. On a brighter note, the die will set a brown button.
  6. I've only had issues with that when I was trying to rivet leather that was too thick. Another issue could be that you have the handle adjusted for a longer throw causing it to reach into the leather. Do you want to post a photo so others can take a look?
  7. I've never found eyelets with necks that long. Goldstar has long neck eyelets but they still won't work with stuff that thick. It couldn't hurt to call David and ask him to help you find the right ones. Another option is to skive the area if you can. Good luck.
  8. that very well could be. try creating a divot somehow. See if that helps
  9. Too long of a stem will cause you problems. Too big of a hole will cause you problems.
  10. I don't think the "dies for metal cover buttons" is correct. Line 16 spring snaps are more like the glove snaps you are seeking... so your best bet is to get the dies for that. The dies are 4 pieces. I still encourage you to speak with Goldstar to be certain about the correct dies.
  11. You had me going with "segma fasteners" I had never heard that term before. The closest to that is the Spring snap, however they are not exactly the same. My advise is to contact David and ask him to see if he can get the dies for the segmas and if he can start supplying segma snaps. Be very detailed and concise in your writing if you choose to email him. Here is a youtube video that shows the segma fasteners.
