  1. Bob is still in business and making tools...
  2. I'd talk to Bruce Johnson and see what he has in the shop. I have a full set of the vintage #147 and they are better than any of the new ones for sure
  3. Douglas all the way. I have 1 3/4", 1 1/2" and an open 1 3/4" for cinch and latigo carriers

  5. I would like to see how they are used as a buckle. I worked in a harness shop for about 15 years and never saw one used as a buckle. They are meant to hang the traces on harness while you aren't hooked to anything. The trace hangs by a link of it's chain in the bent hook part. Anyways, Weaver Leather carries them, as does Aaron Martin Harness
  6. Talk to Bruce Johnson, he's a member. Or his website is www.brucejohnsonleather.com
  7. Seeing as you're in South Dakota, call up the friendly folks at Sheridan Leather...I've built more pair of rodeo chaps than I'd like to remember somedays and Luke and Vandy and the crew were my main suppliers
  8. PM me the price for the works please Pete
  9. www.thethreadexchange.com may just have what you need
  10. You can buy a hand knurler such as the Knurlmaster. They are basically a "C" shaped pipe cutter style tool. Hope this helps.
  11. I vote for Superiors as well...I only keep Blevins buckles in the shop for someone that might need a set replaced.
  12. Dennis, I start wrapping from left to right...and run the one wrap so it comes up through the hole and then just keep going until I have wrapped all the way to the other dee. As per punching the hole in a saddle that doesn't have one, you can use a plier punch and make two holes 1/2" apart and cut between carefully with a knife. I punch my slot before the final install of the seat. Hope this helps some more
  13. Dennis, I've attached a pic of one of my saddles with the rolls installed...you may not be able to see, but there is a 1/2" bag punch hole just ahead of my maker's stamp...as I wrap the latigo around the wraps between dees I run the tail through that slot one time and then keep wrapping from left to right. Hope you can understand. I don't have a pic handy without the rolls on the saddle
