  1. I use the W/C belt latigo for my leashes and collars, works well, seems to be less oil stuffed into it. Like JLS says so far the product is quite good. I am not a large account at a couple of hides at a time so always ask if they can make the delivery in a couple of weeks. So far So good.
  2. Ray's 3 ton Ratchet press is back on the market. Shipping to WI, prohibited the sale.
  3. Ray, I wil buy the press. Can you estimate shipping to WI?
  4. Ray, I will buy the lace thread lot. It has been a while since I bought from you so do not remember how I paid. can you email me at Thank Ray.
  5. Hey Johanna, You bit off a chunk with this change girl friend. I work in the insurance industry, we have 50,000 employees and a whole raft of people to keep our system running. Your work here is coming along, I see revisions and corrections every time I log on. You will get there, we as your patrons just need to have a little patience until things clear up. By this time next year this will just be a bad dream. So take a break, be a mom and drink good whiskey. Everything will work out in the end.
  6. thunter9 is correct about the Thomas Regestry however i think that they have an on line site as well. I have the Waterhouse samples. They have some really nice colors but not sure if they would have all the different colors you are interested in. Be prepaired to wait on the waterhouse samples i think it took about 2 months for me to get all of the samples they sent. However it was worth the wait.
  7. hey John, welcome to the site. Lots of great info here by some great leathersmiths.
  8. I am interested in that magazine as well if you have others.
  9. My fav is 1994 Buick century wagon, it is 2.2 engine with 373000 miles and still putting out 26-28 mpg. 2 head gaskets and rebuilt the tranny at 250, 000.
  10. I was watching a Tandy video one night. I do not remember which one but George Hurst was doing the work on one of their kits or patterns. He said that you can use our patterns to make items for sale or use, and we encourage this, just do not claim it as your own. that is not an exact quote but pretty close to what he said.
  11. Matt, I received a thread sample kit from Tippman It comes in a plastic envelope with the different threads available. Give then a call and see if they still have it. It is pretty handy until you get used to the different threads. I also use it when doing repairs to match up the thread thickness..
  12. con grats on the sale. happy to hear that you can move on to retirement.
  13. Thank you Roy. That is quite a list of patterns to study over.
  14. Thank you all for your reviews and comments. My carving has a long way to go to equal what is see on this site. One project at a time.
  15. This was a contest project from earlier this year. I modified it some so that i could give it to my grandaughter when it was completed. It turned out well enough except for the loss of color. The stain was applied before the resist had properly set. Patience is key. Emilly is happy with it so I am happy with it.
