  5. Custom Dual Strap Satchel

    looks good chromexcel is oily - will the cement/glue keep the lining?
  6. Cracking leather

    could be leather (overdry) could be the process itself - oiling after or before dying is a general conditioner treatment which prevents cracking and penetrates into leather fibres. Pro OIL dyes from Fiebengs pretty good, but their Regular dyes (alcohol) do make leather go very very dry.
  7. Vegetable tanned Leather

    Check SLC , Theleatherguy
  8. Football Panel Template

    geometry - pentagons tip attached
  9. depends on how they were tanned, the source (brand) mostly, what I've seen so far on #1 grade and good tannage ostrich skins ~350-450$ per one skin. get more info on your deal )
  10. if not mistaken, cobra (or other brand) do provide leasing or credit as an option. It's easier to pay by small payments. Go check them from time to time in the forum under 'sale' thread there are some offerings on splitters.
  11. I would prefer cobra(or similar) automatic machine. You will save tons of leather, time and life, rather than doing a hand splitting. worth the money, many will tell ya
