    I would glue a piece oF leather or suede over the screwhead ..
  7. Slap or blackjack ..

    I did some research and was amazed at the history of these simple and early forms of self protection. They seem to vary in style and pretty much just what they had available at the time . I see where Smith and Wesson made them for a time ..

    Great thread does anyone have any updates on their projects ..
  9. Does anyone have any info about a slap or blackjack as they were called back in the day? They were a type of weapon that would get your attention pretty quickly from what I understand . They would have a steel plate or steel shot in the end and sometimes have a coil spring for a handle all wrapped in leather .. Thank you Itch ..

  13. We have an early Fortuna from the 1950s and we could not work in our shop without it. It allows us to purchase 12 -14 oz leather what we usually use for the bulk of our products.. We then are able to thin everything else as we need.. I recently purchased another Fortuna UA band splitter from Ebay but it sadly arrived in pieces
