  5. Learning About Saddle Repairs

    They are a repair shop. Looks like they replaced the seat, skirts, flaps and knee pads. But kept the original panels and perhaps sweat flaps. These are things you will figure out by building a saddle.
  6. Learning About Saddle Repairs

    NASS is a good place to start. They offer courses for saddle and bridle and harness. I have been doing repairs for 20 years and attended one of there courses a few years ago. I would start there. You will make some connections that will be very helpful in your learning process. You may even find someone in the states to apprentice with. As for shop size I agree that a large space is not needed. I worked in a space about 12 foot by 24 foot. It all in how you lay it out. I have 3 different benches. 2 sewing machines, a crank splitter, a crank creaser, and miscellaneous power tools.
  7. Holster or Stirrup plate

    Thanks guys. I've gotten alot of information to work with.
  8. Holster or Stirrup plate

    tempting though. The measurement that weaver gave me foe the Adler was to short from needle slot to edge of plate. Really can't go anywhere with that. But you could do something here. As you said an expensive experiment. To bad the weaver plate was only $99.

    thanks for the pictures with the measurement. Would you have a measurement the other direction to the needle slot?
  12. Holster or Stirrup plate

    The service DVD that I purchased from Tony Luberto Sewing states that the Bull was built off a Consew 754r. Consew does not offer a Holster plate.
  13. Holster or Stirrup plate

    Looking for a holster plate that will fit or could be modified to fit my Ferdinand 900b Bull. I am hoping that this will allow me to sew the welting to the flaps of an English saddle. That said I am not sure whether a holster plate or a stirrup plat would be better. I emailed Cowboy to see if there plate might fit. But haven't heard anything yet. I spoke with Weaver the screw pattern seems correct but the needle slot is off.

    oops correct number is 860-690-6680. Thanks

    New Hampshire is pretty close for me. Do you still have the splitter? Can you please contact me. Either call or text. 860-690-2020. Thanks
