  1. another belt measuring question

  2. another belt measuring question

    I have only made a few belts and have used roller buckles, all of them have come out short using different methods to size it. The part I am missing is "adding couple inches" to waist measurement. 13 year old granddaughter, waist measurement over jeans is 30 1/2 inch, buckle bar to hook is 2 1/4 inch, want to use 4 holes ( wear hole, 1 smaller 2 bigger ) So......Fold to wear hole 30 1/2 plus couple inches (32 1/2) minus the 2 1/4 for buckle = 30 1/4 from fold to wear hole ? JLS love your " 3 hole " method

    Nice job.
  4. another belt measuring question

    I want to make a belt for my granddaughters birthday who lives in another state. I will be using this type of buckle. How would I measure for proper fit to the middle hole ?
  5. What type of leather to use???

    Latigo and Bridle are perfect for outside use, the waxes and oils make them water resistant. Also the drum dyed eliminates the staining process. Latigo is my choice for holsters, handbags and motorcycle gear, and I stamp and tool both latigo and bridle.
