  2. Hand Forged Buckles

    Steel buckles can be heat treated and polished to help prevent rust. They can also be tinned, blued, browned etc.
  3. KS Blade Pricking Irons #7 & #8 Sets

    Kudos to you in moving to the awl! GLWS
  4. Is Google is killing art?

    Rat Patrol!
  5. They just dipped those stocks in raw linseed IIRC. A linseed varnish made by cooking with the addition of leaded dryers is more of a finish but not like a modern finish. A raw linseed dip was more for shovels, picks and hoes etc
  6. Sounds like it was applied too thick. Take some fine steel wool or a piece of canvas and dip it in the oil, go over the handle vigorously, take a paper towel and vigorously wipe off all of the oil and then buff with a dry cloth.
  7. Sporran and Waiste Belt

    This is a Sporran and belt I just finished. The sporran is completely of horsehide less the perimeter trim on the flap.
  8. Has anyone seen a waist belt like this before?

    Someone used a trace buckle(harness work)to make a waiste belt
  9. Stiching thinner leather <3/4oz

    Pardon my ignorance..I saw two references to French pricking irons...Other than a brand being made in France(Blanchard for example), what exactly are "French " pricking irons? Is this a new term to distinguish a pricking iron from the stitching irons (many made in Asia)where one punches all the way thru and then goes about lacing the thread in a separate event ? Thanks

    This is great and THE way to go if you can pick up. One 3/8 sheet would cost 191.58 to ship ; )

    I would save the jewelers saw for cutting sheet and use a hacksaw and files to make stamps.

    A 1/4" thick 4x8 sheet of HDPE will run about 110.00 plus shipping if you don't have access locally. Probably less than 200.00 total and you have a full coverage cutting surface.

    Just cover it with a sheet of HDPE.
