  1. How should I set stones in leather?

    So why did you ask if you already knew how to do it? Playing the game of Stump the Dummy huh. I see how you are ya little whipper snapper. You'll get yours. I've used glue and just the leather. Haven't had an issue either way. It looks like you need to cut the hole smaller by about 1/8 inch or so. Looks good.
  2. How should I set stones in leather?

    I use a leather piece and cut a hole in the leather smaller than the stone. Then sew the piece to your project. here's an example because I know I didn't explain this very well.

    Try ISMACS.com under Research. There is a hyperlink for "Let Singer Date Your Machine." I looked around and from what I can gather it was made in Clydbank, Scotland. No more the that. Hope this helps.

  13. Nice collection you made. Question thought,.......what's the make and model of that yellow grip jobber?
  14. Well that's a nice howdy-do. I'm old, bald, fat, and can't see. Now can I have it?
