  1. Never thought of that. Ill have to check the out. Thanks
  2. Thanks. Its a large center bag with four pouchlets. The bag is mafe from onebpiece of leather.
  3. Jarred I'm looking to make a pouch that uses a large ring at the top for an opening. You lift the ring and the top of the pouch opens. When you let go of the ring gravity closes it. There are examples on "Purses in Pieces". Fyi another source fir chain maille links is The Ring Lord. They have everytype of ring you can think of from Aluminum to Gold.
  4. Just finished a Money Changers Purse, also known as a Mother's Purse. The design was based on piece that is in the Cluney Musee' in Paris. Saw it in Purses in Pieces and it looked cool.
  5. Truely impressive work.
  6. Looking to make a ring purse. Does anyone know of a source for the rings?
  7. I am looking for a source for the swivel rivets used in M1912 holsters. Does anyone know if these are available?
  8. Thsnks, Here's the seam. I made the chape by gormong copper sheet around the bottom of the scabbard, then fitting a piece of copper into the open end. The whole thing was soldered together.
  9. Mrs Hicks. Great reference article. I have started experimenting with this method of hardening leather. Do you have any historical references for this method?
  10. They are beautiful. Here's my first scabbard.
  11. Just tried the concoction. Finished with satin sheen.
  12. Thanks for the input Chuck. I just combined 16 oz of tallow with about 3oz of beeswax. I'll try that and see how it works before I add any oil.
  13. Just rendered down about 2 lbs of deer fat. Got about 12 oz of tallow. Im gonna mix it with beeswax and test it out. Is there anything else i should add? Maybe 100 % neatsfoot oil or lard?
  14. I've had nothing but good experience s with them.
  15. Cool. Thanks. Ill try some with bees wax.
