  1. Thanks, I'll take a look. found some really nice stainless ones on ali-express. They're not pivotable but they're a solid, good looking buckle at a decent price. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/free-shipping-top-quality-long-time-using-metal-men-belt-buckle-stainless-steel-leather-craft-accessories/32691514883.html They have them in 1.25" and 1.5" I purchased a few in both sizes and while shipping was painfully slow the quality is good.
  2. My girlfriend and I are looking at re-doing the seat on her motorcycle and I'm looking for recommendations on foam, what type, where to buy etc. Especially if you've got any Canadian sources I'd greatly appreciate it.
  3. Very nice! What do you do for the edges? Both of the wallet itself and the thinner edges inside? Also, what type of leather is that?
  4. Sold
  5. Damn nice work! How do I get into this end of the industry?
  6. Thanks. I'm a fan of the chicago screws for holding buckles when I can since it allows for the buckle to be changed down the line if anyone ever wants too. Especially on belts.
  7. Stunning! Do you have a pattern you'd be willing to share? Or construction pics? I have a friend who's big into archery who has a birthday coming up. . .
  8. New dog collar for a client from black bridle. I may have stuck it on one of my cats to be funny. . . the cat failed to see the humour.
  9. Did you paint the lettering to get the green on the black? it looks great.
  10. Unfortunately his selection isn't great for dress buckles, they're virtually all nickle plated and I'm specifically hoping for stainless or titanium. I can find both on amazon but I feel like there's got to be better pricing. Nickle plate I can get from china for $2 a buckle.
  11. Hey folks, I'm trying to find a source for some High Quality belt buckles. Ideally I'd love some that are reversible in stainless (as opposed to nickle plated copper). I'm looking mostly for stainless or titanium at better pricing than you find on amazon. Any ideas? 1.5" and 1.25". Thanks team.
  12. I'm selling my skiver. It's in great shape, I have no issues with it but honestly I picked it up and barely use the darn thing. My wife is harassing me to open up some space so away she goes. Asking $1200 CDN for it. I'm happy to ship (at your cost) but it won't be cheap. Pickup is in Bolton, ON which is just north of Toronto. Skiver comes with multiple presser feet, table, and servo motor.
  13. It didn't seem to be an issue for me when I wore it but definitely a good idea moving forward.
  14. Haha. Alternately you could try skiving the edge or grooving it. Neither worked with this sole. The other thing we did is because there's padding in between the layers we left the last 1/4" on the outside unpadded so the sole and leather pulled together. This definitely buys some space from the walking surface, in combination with the thread tension I'm confident thread wear won't be a concern for a few years.
  15. Well we got ours fron Tandy. With hand stitching I'd just pull really tight. . .
