  1. 1/16 Burr Rivets

    Yes those are the type. I am restoring a placard belt and the rivets I'm trying to replace are round head brass. I was trying to find replacement rivets without haveing to make them.
  2. That would probably help soak it a bit deeper into the leather. Post some pics of your results good or bad.
  3. Haven't tried that. But if your worried take a large piece of scrap leather, tool or stamp a random design and give it a try before you try it on a project.
  4. Does anyone know of a source for 1/16 dia burr rivets. All of my searches have come up empty.
  5. LotR style bowie sheath

    Nice work. How did you attach the gold leaf?
  6. I use a mixture of 50% neatsfoot oil, 25% beeswax, and 25% tallow (by volume) Make a paste a little softer than shoe polish. Just rub it in with a soft cloth.

  10. Ring purse hardware

    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.
  11. 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.
