  1. Maul or mallet?

    I started with a tapered maul; it works for me.
  2. Weaver Leather Craft Supply Videos

    I have subscribed to the Weaver youtube channel and have been watching these videos as they come out. They are well done, easy to watch through to the end, and informative. Thank you for producing them.
  3. Sewing Machine Game.....

    Gosh you might get more feedback on this one than you asked for. For the big stuff, I have an awesome Class 4 Cobra. After buying that I got an old Singer 111w155 and added a servo motor. This machine gets alot of use. Everything from canvas to light leather, denim and blankets. I used my dremel to open up the toe of one foot for better visibility. It also has a Sailrite binder which is attached with an ebay bracket. Next I have a 1960's Morse for fabric. Also a Singer 66 treadle machine, mainly for fun, but I have sewn on patches with it. These machines are all wonderful in their own way and highly recommend them all. Sometime I may replace the 111w155 with another table model that has reverse,
  4. Hello, I was wondering what product to use to clean my feed dogs after sewing waxed canvas? I have scrubbed them with a toothbrush and machine oil, but they still seem a bit dingy. I can't stand smudging my projects after sewing waxed canvas things. Is it possible to clean them up with removing them? Thanks in advance for any ideas.
  5. Geometric Stamped Wrist Cuffs

    Absolutely beautiful!
  6. Wont be buying from SLC again

    They have treated me very well, I have no complaints. If I order from different suppliers, it is generally because of the difference in distance.
  7. Some Straps I made

    Those are seriously impressive!
  8. The thought of drilling holes was too daunting, so I ended up buying an attachment bracket off ebay. The Sailrite binder hooked up to the bracket sans the attachment's chromed part with a touch of dremel grinding. So far this is working very well, with a solid feel. This seems to be a solution that will work nicely for my hobby projects. Since the Sailrite is only held on with one screw, it no doubt would not be a good way to attach the binder for someone who relies on this professionally.
  9. Is there a Master Guide? Favorite book?

    I really wish that I had purchased the Al Stohlman case making books right when I first started. It would have saved countless hours of internet searching and struggles. Also Leather Tools and The Art of Hand Sewing Leather are very useful.
  10. I think alot of people will be jealous reading this.
  11. I can see how that could be superior because the binder is not affixed to the moveable plate. Thank you to everyone who has given me some ideas today.
  12. I looked closely at this picture from another thread: New to industrial sewing machines Juki LU-562 Could it be that simple?
  13. I don't know if it helps, but here is a picture of my machine.
  14. That looks very nice. I have binder envy. I am still trying to think of ways to rig this up so I don't have to mess with taking the plate to a metalworker.
