  1. Landis Splitter - leather catching on knife

    Any chance that blade has an elephant stamped on it? If so, the blades themselves are not square. I talked to Bruce about one that I had in for sharpening last winter. the blade edge had been ground properly and was next to new...problem I found was over 3/16" in depth (front to back) from blade end to blade end. The blade was also not equal in thickness. Needless to say, I spent a lot of hours truing up this blade. Customer is still elated with it, but man I lost money on that deal
  2. Bob is still in business and making tools...
  3. Osborne #147 drive punches

    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

  6. Unususal Buckle

    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

  11. Knurling On Hand Tools

    You can buy a hand knurler such as the Knurlmaster. They are basically a "C" shaped pipe cutter style tool. Hope this helps.
  12. I vote for Superiors as well...I only keep Blevins buckles in the shop for someone that might need a set replaced.
  13. Hole For Bucking Rolls?

    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
