  1. It depends on what size nozzle you spray it with. If you mix with 20% water you should be fine. If you apply it with a sponge, dampen the sponge first. Don't get the sponge to wet. Give it one even coat, run the sponge in a straight even line. Let it dry over night, if you need another do it again. Jim
  2. Try Leather Balm Wax, if you are tooling some might get caught in the cuts. You can usually rub it out of the cuts with sheep wool. If that don't work use a hair dryer , not to hot, then rub it out. Buff it to a mellow finish. Jim
  3. I buy all my hardware off OhioTravel Bag.com They have just about everything you will need. If you buy by the 100 it is cheaper. Jim
  4. Mounting dies on a 1 Ton Arbor Press?

    Thank you for the photo. I have seen them. Wouldn't it be easier just hit it with a maul? The arbor press is great for setting a large stamp, is it worth going through all the drilling and the expense of buying dyes? I am not sold on converting it. Thank you for the photo, I have one from Weaver that is similar. Jim
  5. Mounting dies on a 1 Ton Arbor Press?

    I also have a harbor fright arbor press. I mounted it to a piece of 3/4 plywood and used a C clamp to mount it to the work bench. To get enough pressure from the press I put a copper pipe on the handle to get better leverage for a large logo stamp. It works better then setting it with a maul. I just don't know if it is worth all the trouble to use it to set snaps and things of that nature. Jim

  8. Club Stamp

    Bear Claw, How did he copy your logo? Jim
  9. Club Stamp

    I spoke with a few people about getting a stamp made of my metal detecting clubs logo. I sent them a picture of the logo, pictured is above. They both told me the same thing. They would have to send a photo of the patch to their graphic designer and they would have to run it on their program. They would of course charge me. As you all know, people don't want to spend a lot of money on leather work the way it is. At least not my leather work.
  10. Club Stamp

    When I go to that web site a lot of stamp makers come up. Do you have a name? Jim

  12. Club Stamp

    I am looking for a stamp maker that can duplicate my clubs patch below. I don't have an arbor press, I would like to be able to stamp it by hand or both if possible. The widest part of the stamp is 3 1/4 " I would appreciate any information that you can give me. I am going to use it for small cases. Jim
  13. That is a really nice case. If you aren't worried about the water try American Bison. I think it would look great and it is strong.
  14. Tips from Uncle Dave

    I purchased a four by eight sheet of canvas for burnishing very cheap, compared to any leather outlet store. Hobby Lobby or any store that sells tent supplies sells it.
