  3. another belt measuring question

  4. another belt measuring question

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your knowledge. The long version of your explanation will most assuredly be printed and hung on my shop wall. My confusion with the "add two inches" after further research, was actually for pant size vs belt size. 38 waist in pants size will probably be 41 inches from fold to wear hole on belt. So this weekend I randomly stopped girls at the mall and asked if I could measure their waist and then their belt to see if I was on the right track. The wife was not at all impressed with my data collecting...it was a good run. For my project the 30.5 inches was over the jeans she wears, I went 28.5 inches from the fold to the wear hole cut from 8 oz., the buckle will add 2.25 inches. I added two holes past the wear hole ( 1 inch apart ) and 1 hole before the wear hole. We will see how it goes ......

  6. 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

  8. 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 ?
  9. 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.
