  1. Mallet Style Die

    Yes, this is what I am looking for. I have been hand cutting the circles so far and I am hoping getting a die will speed things up and give me a more uniform end product. Thanks for the help!
  2. Mallet Style Die

    I am needing a 2 1/2 or 2 5/8" diameter round mallet style leather die. Where would be the best place to find one? I am going through thin leather and don't have a press yet so I would like the mallet style. Thanks!
  3. Same Customer, Different Horse

    Wow, that is gorgeous! What color is the dye/finish? I am trying to find one thats not so dark for a tooled planner but all my stuff seems so dark.
  4. Craftool Pro Stamps/tandy Sale

    Thank you both for the help! I feel like I spent a small (large for me) fortune on tools and leather this weekend but hopefully I can get some projects done and make up for it.
  5. Not really sure where to post this but I got the flyer for the Tandy sale that started today and when looking at stamps to add to my collection I noticed the Pro line ones are $18 with the gold memebership, I can't afford very many but I am wondering for those that do a lot of floral carving/tooling which ones can't you live without? I still only have the basic stamps that came with the Tandy Deluxe kit and I have been getting by ok but I would like to see about stepping it up. Also what kind of knives do you like to use to cut out the actual leather? I have just been using a scissor but wondered about getting a trim knife or something as I have to cut a lot of curves.
  6. Considering Alternative Tools For Pre-Sewing-Prep Tools

    Not sure it's what you're looking for but I have Tandy's diamond hole chisel set on my next purchase list. They have a video using it on their website and I have found past threads using it with success.
  7. Need A Pattern For Chap Belt

    Are you looking for a pattern for chap yokes or just the back part? I can't tell if it's maple or oak leaves on this computer but here is one pattern pack to consider

    Hi, I'm new to leather work, got it in my head a few weeks ago it was something I wanted to try and just had to give it a go. It's been quite the learning experience already but I am slowly feeling more comfortable with my knife and the tools. I was about ready to call it quits when it came to the decoartive cuts but I bought some scraps and learned how to case my leather better and how poor quality the Tandy stuff is that came in the kit and feel a bit better about doing the cuts. Next on my list is to learn about the sewing and to get additonal tools but one step at a time. These are my first couple projects so far.
