  1. Seeking info on Champion machine

    Lol you never know
  2. Championship Belts

    Do you hand cut all the belts? or do you have a die.....they look great regardless Ross
  3. Yin, I didnt dilute at all. But I brushed on really lightly. I have noticed if I slather it on its much darker. The carving part is around 4 and the rest 3 ish. I did skive the edges down which helped some. I always struggle with leather weights on wallets, part of why I dont like em. Glad you guys like the eagle....i feel like I could do much better on it, gets tough that small though for me anyway lol
  4. Fiebings Pro Dye Dark Brown Thanks for the compliment!
  5. I dont make many wallets. Just never got the knack for em down well. Might just be a practice issue. Anyway I was asked to make a custom wallet as a gift for a Boy scout who just earned his eagle. So here it is: Veg tan leather inside and out. Carved with initials on the right and an eagle on the left. Decided to lace the outside of it as well. Came out ok I thought. The eagle could be better in my opinion. Ross

  10. Tandy Business Pricing....

    Yep they have done this for years. I think you get the elite pricing but you dont have to pay for the member ship. Obviously you have to have the tax id etc. Ross

    Just a great topic.. One of the best I have seen on here. There is so much to be gained from seeing each others workspaces and the ideas generated by that. Thanks again @Mjolnir Ross

  13. site chat

    Come on over to chat tonight and talk some leather folks
  14. So as I progress along in leatherwork I am starting to consider better edgers. I seem to use them the most of all the hand tools and I currently am using Tandy style ones. I have no real complaints I have sharpened them and they work. However have been looking at some of the better tools out there and seems most opinions I can find on the board here leans towards better ones. I have seen Barry Kings, Bob Beard and The older cs osbournes mentioned many times. Also Watt tools too. Few others that slip my mind at the moment.... So I am curious what are folks favorites. I am also curious if folks prefer the bissonnette type more than the regular slotted type. I have never had a chance to try a bissonnette style but seems like they might function better with the ability to pull or push. Curious your thoughts and Thanks Ross
