  1. Contact Dan Beiler.. That looks like it is out of a self centering press that he makes ..
  2. Another Mold Supplier - Here we go again!

    We have been doing business with Rings for some time .. If you do not see something listed give them a call. He has surprised me more than once ..
  3. We have the weaver master tools and they are pretty good . However for the slots to fit our gun belts I will sometimes sand the slots in order to open them up a little bit .. Just a little tip I usually try to have a piece of scrap leather underneath my work . When using those poundo boards they get chewed up over time and by having a piece of leather between it protects my work from getting scratched up and seems to keep the punches and slot punches in better shape . Good luck ..
  4. Making a belt out of upholstery leather?

    Glue the pieces together with the finished piece being a little wider,once dried trim and sand.. When we leave a natural edge I usually rub the edge with beeswax then burnish with a piece of wood ,leather or whatever you use .. Good Luck ..
  5. I have rebuilt a few Old Motorcycles and Kroil is the best thing on the market ..
  6. Wow Thank Y'all so much when I ran across this old thread I was wondering if anyone had any fresh ideas .. Gives me plenty to work with ..
  7. Spot Setter

    We have a little wonder and a Heritage foot press in our shop .. For setting a lot of spots the girls prefer the foot press ..
  8. I just ran across this .. Any updates with pictures ...
  9. Can you give us a few more details ? I am interested ..
  10. Fortuna leather splitting machine

    We have a couple of those Fortuna splitters in our shop,and also a couple of 3 phase clicker presses .. Check into a Powerflex 40 it runs are equipment just fine .. https://ab.rockwellautomation.com/Drives/PowerFlex-40
  11. Installing a conch on gun holster.

    I would glue a piece oF leather or suede over the screwhead ..
  12. 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 ..
  13. Jack Sap

    Great thread does anyone have any updates on their projects ..
  14. 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 ..
  15. Snap Setting Issues

    In our shop we use a heritage foot press and the weaver little wonder,they both work well ..
