  1. I'm new to carving but have basket stamped most of my saddles. I have a saddle to do that the customer wants his initials and basket stamping on the back jockeys. I'm not sure how to do this? I'm in New Zealand.

    C Greatrex & Son round knife

    I have just been some leather tools from an estate. They have been untouched for the last 30 years, all in surprising good condition. There is a round knife made by C Greatrex & Son. Can't find much about this company apart from they made saddles and closed in 1906. Have got it cleaned up and sharpened. Does anyone know any more about it or what the quality is like?

    Rawhide made in a stream.

    I recently seen some rawhide that was made by leaving it in a flowing stream weighted down by rocks. It had not been fleshed beforehand. Has anyone had experience with this?

    removing stirrup leathers martha josey saddle

    I have just finished repairing this saddle. I put new counter sunk bolts and tee nuts in. I ended up using a product called knead it to cover the tee nuts and the hole in the bars. Poor bugger who has to pull it to pieces next time.

    removing stirrup leathers martha josey saddle

    Have got this saddle pulled to bits. Had to remove skirts. Then grind fibreglass where bolts go through bars, there was a big lump of bog over the top of the tee nut. Could't get tee nut undone so cut it off with grinder. New tee nuts and bolts to buy then i can attach new stirrup leathers. Thanks for the advice every gave me.
