  1. I have a cobra class 4 that have a flat bed attachment over the cylinder arm. I swore I saw a cowboy cylinder arm machine with one as well. On the cobra website I ordered mine for $95 as an accessory after I realized they made one:) If you haven't contacted them yet, I would ask them at Toledo.
  2. Are sewing machines worth the money

    It sounds like you have your mind pretty set. I see it like this, if its a purchase you are happy about making, and you can comfortably afford it. Get it while you can and have fun with it. I have three myself, but I still find myself hand sewing. The downside with a machine is every stitch path has to be planned and you will have to pull out a scrap piece to check your settings every time (set up time). Hand stitching you can pop a stitch on the fly in less time, and headache. I love using both and a machine opens so many doors to styles and cutting down on product time. Hope this helps, and also everyone here make really good points. I'm glad that you came here for advice, that is why I love this forum we help one another.
  3. BALD EAGLE TOOLING PATTERN

    I saw a video on Tandy's website and it shows some of the details. With their craftaides it gives you info on the tools used so you can try it out. being a not so good tool-er, it is hard to determine what would be best to use for what.
  4. First post

    For this being a first post, you really blew the hinges off the door! nice work:)
  5. My new belt

    Very clean looking, and tooled nice
  6. Chest-piece Armor

    You have a great eye for detail, I look forward to seeing more of your work here:) Truly inspiring
  7. Chest-piece Armor

    Is it me or did you add a splattered blood effect on the shoulders? Nice work, I love it
  8. I find using the Fiebing's saddle soap w/glycerin before Appling a color tends to come out a little more even, and your less likely to have contamination on the surface that acts as a blocker/ blotch-er.
  9. BALD EAGLE TOOLING PATTERN

    Thank you:) I did see that one, but I was hoping for a craftaid type of pic that kinda guides on the tools you can use along the image.
  10. BALD EAGLE TOOLING PATTERN

    I'm trying to find a good tooling pattern of a bald eagle in flight. I've tried the patterns on the leather craft library and not too impressed, because they seem too generic on the body, the wings look good. I'm not the best it tooling, but I do like a challenge. Any suggestions are a huge help, I tried the search here and really didn't find anything which is why I'm bugging y'all:)
  11. Streaking dye

    I'll check that out, I didn't think to look at Home Depot or Lowe's. I need to make a trip there today anyway:) Looks like I have some testing to do this week end. ill post the results and pics of what I find:)
  12. Streaking dye

    I'll see what I can find, and ill get back to you. I know that a lot of the ones I've used harden halfway through dying a holster which makes really bad streaks and scratches.
  13. Streaking dye

    @Fredk this may be a dumb question, but I'm having a problem finding a sponge that doesn't spread out and become loose, or harden when I use Fiebing's pro dyes. I tried different types like the yellow non-scratch(harden), all of the different Tandy's sponges either harden or spread out too soft its hard to control. Please tell me there is a sponge that holds its shape and allows structural integrity!
  14. Making Belts, The Easy Way

    Thank you, this helps a lot now that I find myself wanting to make more belts. Great work on the pdf.
