  1. Rim Sets-long leg silver 12ss

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has been able to find 12ss silver long leg rim sets? Dreamtime only carries the gold in the long leg and I've looked all over the internet with no luck. Thank you!
  2. Thank you guys for all your input!!! Super helpful!
  3. Hi there, I've signed up for my first leather class and need to bring tools. I know some of you clever people have some great ways to travel with your stuff! Im also not sure what tools to bring? It's a figure carving class. I was looking at an ammo case and my husband said he''d make me a small wood block for a tool holder. I'd love your ideas and pics if you have them. Thank you!
  4. Fire Fighting Templates

    Hi there, Looking for a radio holster template for a BK radio(Bendix King) OR any holster. I can make adjustments to measurements. Thanks
  5. Thank you Buzzardbait! I appreciate it!
  6. I would like to invest in a couple of nice beveling stamps. I am looking for some recommendations. I've looked at Barry King's website and there are so many which is great but I don't know what the difference is between a few. I know I want a smooth beveler. I make dog collars and therefore work quite small. My go to Craftool bevelers is a B935 and B203. A few of my questions are 1) What is an undercut beveler? 2)What are your favorite brands, BK, ect? 3)Is there a way to figure out what angle the Craftool bevelers are so I can compare them mentally? Right now Im looking at either the BK line but am not sure about the regular, 15 degree or xx steep. Thanks in advance! Julie
  7. Thank you Halitech. It will be a tooled dog collar with white designs painted on.
  8. Hi, I have some vinegaroon that is about a year old. Its been stored in a mason jar. I tried a tester piece of leather and it worked fine and blackened the leather fairly quickly(2 minutes). I neutralized and applied neatsfoot oil while it was still damp. How long have you stored your vinegaroon. I have read a few stories on here about vinegaroon dyed pieces fading over time. I was wondering if anyone has ever applied a spirit black dye over vinegaroon. I would think it might add a deeper black to the occasional issue of the vinegaroon being a dark gray sometimes. I am guessing once the vinegaroon piece has been neutralized it should be ok to dye for the extra insurance that the piece stays a nice deep black? Thanks for any input!!
  9. Thank you Bill, Mike and Cowboycolonel. I will check them out. I appreciate the recommendations!! Julie
  10. I was wondering if there are any good DVD's you can recommend for basic to advanced leather carving and tooling. I am a visual learner and would love to find a few good DVD's. Or if there are any on youtube you really like that would be great too. I've scoured youtube but Im sure I haven't found them all! Thanks
  11. I ordered some new stainless steel 1" center bar roller buckles from Weaver. I have the same style Tandy chrome plated buckle. I wanted to get started on the dog collar I am making with this buckle but Im a little leary that the sizes might be a bit different. I was wondering if anyone has used both and knows for sure? I know in theory they should be the same. If it's even 1/32" difference my collar will not fit. Thank you! Weaver buckle Tandy buckle
  12. Thanks for the response Richard! I actually do dye with Angelus spirit dyes all the edges before I paint them. I figure if a dog scratches the collar at least if it's dyed close to the same color underneath it would look ok. Most of my collars are painted and it would look weird to just dye the edges when the collar itself is painted. I have only been doing this about 8 months and I've checked in with and see most of the people who I've made collars for and they said they are holding up well.
  13. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has tried the Eco Flo edgeflex line and likes or dislikes? Right now I use Angelus acrylic paints on the edges. MANY coats that I leave to dry for a min of 3 hrs each. I was curious if there is a comparable product that is good quality that will last over time! Thanks, Julie
  14. Magnified Glasses

    I just bought this on Amazon about a week ago for leatherwork. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0087DWGCM?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01. The lense is 2.25x (5 diopter) Its a LED so it does not get hot. The lense is 6 linches. I really like it. At night I still need another swing arm light to help light area but I am really happy with the light. It takes a bit to get used to but I don't think I could go with out it now.
