  2. Rest In Peace Dear Friend- RaySouth

    Sad news. Ray was a staple for this site for the entire time I've been here. I will miss him. Rest in peace, Ray.
  3. Lining Leather

    Why not just line with more herman oak? Thinner than 9/10 perhaps, but go back to back and you're done!
  4. I just meant the news part. Not sure what the rest of the posts are all about.

    I agree with Halitech on the stitch line. I should work as is for a while with no issues. You can always add another stitch line inside the existing one to make it last longer. Also, I would suggest you clean up your belt holes by edging them and then burnishing. Otherwise, looks good.
  6. Amazing!

    An excellent point! I got my start right here about 4.5 years ago. Its an amazing community with a lot of collective knowledge. Welcome. This is true. Its ok to ask a lot of questions, and take from them what works for you, but if you don't put any of it to use, it can be a bit confusing.

    I have two of each. They're both awesome cutting tools.

    A. You'll never live it down. B. In this, we are in complete agreement. C. Greece is full of those. Good coffee too!

    Jeff, I appreciate your reply. Its true we have never met, and that Robert was a good man. Wish he was still with us. The gal was from right here on LW.net and we now live happily in Greece. Hats off to the forum for getting me out of law enforcement after 20 years so sucking shit for a living. As for the rest, I have nothing against you, I just feel strongly about the subject matter and the good of the industry. There are a lot of good resources out there, this site being one of the best. In retrospect, I apologize for derailing the thread. Some things just stick in my craw and I can't let go. So, all that said, its generally my policy to leave the thread alone for posterity, but I can clean it up if that is your preference.
