  2. Leather show 2017

    Prescott in Feb or March (Southwest Leatherworkers) and Sheridan in May (Rocky Mountain Leather Show) are both put on by Leathercrafters Journal. They do a great job and are both good shows. There is also the Boot and Saddle Makers Show in Wichita Falls, TX in Oct, and the Pendleton show in November. I have never been to Pendleton, we do the Wichita Falls show every year. It is also a good show. Leathercrafters Journal was doing a show in Europe in Firminy France, but I believe that show is on hold until they find a new location.
  3. Best of various types of finished edges

    Don't use the Gum Trag before any kind of dye or paint, it will normally pretty much seal the edges and dye will not penetrate and a paint will not adhere. I would follow Matt's advice, slick with water first. If you want to dye the edge do it at this point. Then you can burnish again...either with water or at this point if you want to use a compound for a glossier edge you could. Do some searches on here you will find many techniques to finishing edges...find one you like and stick with it. Some use bees wax, some use the saddle soap bar, some use gum trag. Play around some and see what you like.

  7. Weaver Leather Consignment Auction 2017

    I just made another post in another sub-forum with the brochure and the early consignment listing and a little additional info. Here they are again. Any other specific questions let me know. 2017 Consignment Listing.pdf
  8. ELeBlanc, you are correct. You can put a reserve on your items, but commission is paid on no sales up to $200. I have attached a couple files of our auction brochure, and the early consignment list. I hope they all work here. Had some issues with file sizes. As far as the outside auction Weaver is basically just the host for the auction. Paul Z Martin, Martin Auctioneers conduct the auction. We have a cash and carry discount on inside sales and have most of our machinery setup for demos inside as well. Its a 2 day auction, mainly selling leather most of the day on Wednesday and getting into the hand tools in the afternoon, and then continuing with hand tools and getting into the machinery and equipment on the second day. We also have tours of our facility running both days. Any other specific questions let me know. Note the link to open pdf below images. 2017 Consignment Listing.pdf

  12. Leather glue

  13. Flesh side of veg tan leather like stiff sandpaper. Normal?

    Hermann Oak natural veg will be fairly firm. The back sounds like a typical dry-split piece of leather. Shaggyness is normally loose flesh which is also not desirable in a good piece of leather. What are you planning to make with it? If you are going to be doing any tooling or carving you want that firmness to accept nice crisp stamping. The finished piece will soften up some if you oil it and with use.
  14. Weaver Strap Edgers

    Both the 4 blade and 2 blade model come standard with #2 blades, but you can request another size when you order it and we will accommodate switching them out. We have sizes 0, 1, 2, and 3, similar to your standard hand edger sizes. If you have any other specific questions on either machine, let me know and I will be glad to help.
