  1. If you are on Facebook join "leather tools to buy sell or trade", I got mine off there.
  2. Say "Thank You" and then go look at all your tools and add up what they cost. She paid you more than money...
  3. Great job! May I suggest you bring the back of the holster up and form a "sweat guard"? As a guy who carries all the time, I can tell you it will make the holster much more comfortable. Nice work!
  4. Outstanding! I think we have an obligation to pass along our craft. I just started teaching my son in law. Tell your son "well done" from me.
  5. My two cents. I use the Boss. I like it, some don't. You are in Michigan. As has been stated, take your materials and go see Bob at Toledo Machine. You will leave with something that works for you, new or used. He will take good care of you.
  6. I have had wonderful support and great leather from Wickett and Craig. I also learned the hard way that you cannot make good products with poor leather.
  7. I have a Tippman, it's a beast and will stitch anything you can fit in it. They take some fiddling to get tensions right and need to be kept cleaned and lubricated but it will stitch about anything. Some folks hate em, I love mine.
  8. Nice job! All of us have a first project and we learn with each one. Read the suggestions found on this website about smoothing your edges. I have made a number of holsters, my first was not as good as yours!
  9. Call Bob at Toledo Industrial, both Bob Sr. and Bob Jr. are excellent resources
  10. I have about 6' x 6' space in the corner of my basement, an old reinforced computer desk, and a sewing machine. I do have a table that cannot be seen for cutting when needed. You work with what you have!
  11. I live in Massillon Ohio and was wondering if there are any local clubs, meetings or workshops in this area. Earl
