  1. Hand-Crank Splitter as Skiver?

    If you cut a wedge of some kind out of a sturdier material, you can use that the run through on top of your strap and split the strap to a tapered edge...The wedge would need to go on top of the strap with the thicker edge toward the end of the strap with the taper toward the rear.
  2. Is this real or faux leather?

    I would say what you have is a corrected grain (top grain) with pebble or tumbled look. I doubt it is a finished split, however I am not sure there is a real great way to tell a finished split from a top grain, other than if you have one beside the other you can easily tell the difference in strength because you can tear the split. But its still "real" leather...it is just the bottom drop from the flesh side.
  3. Rivet Press

    For ease of use the Little Wonder cant be beat for a bench top setter. It sets rivets effortlessly. Even if you buy it now and upgrade to a foot press down the road most people still find use for keeping the Little Wonder, set it up to punch holes, set something else you don't do as frequently so you don't have to change the tooling on your foot press, etc. The Heritage model Foot Press has been discontinued as we came out with the new MT900 model with the automatic attachment options. There are normally a lot of used foot press options at our annual consignment auction as well, but that would have to wait until next June. Let me know if you have any specific questions on the Little Wonder or the MT900.
  4. High Quality Belt Buckles Needed

    To qualify for wholesale from Weaver, you need a tax ID, and a $500 opening order. $1200 a year. If you don't hit that $1200 your account is closed, and you would need to re-open with another $500. But, yes, we do offer retail now. www.weaverleathersupply.com with no requirement. Orders of $100+ ship free freight and there are often discounts and promos that are put out on social media. Popular roller buckles for belts are the standard 999 buckles in nickel and brass plate as well as stainless, the #50 buckle is a bit nicer buckle, we have in Brass, Stainless, and black, the #49 is another option in Brass and Stainless. Our #100 buckles that we stock are now seamless. We made that change at the beginning of the year for our new April catalog. Let me know if anyone has questions on buckles or wholesale/retail.
  5. 4" Seamless Roller Buckle

    Yes, we made the change for the new catalog in April. All stock currently should be seamless.
  6. 4" Seamless Roller Buckle

    Weaver has them. http://www.weaverleathersupply.com/catalog/item-detail/482/001/164 These are seamless rollers, and we have the 2 prong option in 4" as well. Let me know if you have questions.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  12. 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
  13. 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
