  1. I was wondering if you had any contact details for this chap please? Gary
  2. Thought these two links may reduce the likelihood of repetition for more recent members. And nostalgia for others.
  3. Try for the decorative plates. In the UK but I don't know where you are located.
  4. Damien, check your mail. Gary
  5. Just had a quick look through this again and thought I'd better clarify, The English Leather Company does have a 300 sq ft/colour minimum for their English Bridle (quote and their emphasis) Hides & Thicknesses Butts/Bends: 2.0 – 2.2mm / 3.25 - 3.5mm / 3.75 - 4.0mm Sides: 1.8 - 2.0mm / 2.0 – 2.2mm / 2.5 - 3.0mm Shoulders: 2.0 – 2.2mm / 3.2 - 3.5mm 5ft Bridle Butts: 3.5 – 4.0mm Stirrup Butts: 4.5 – 5.0mm MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY: 300 SQ. FT. PER COLOUR (unquote) Here's the link I just thought, as you said you were new and just dabbling, that you would probably be more interested in these cuts than 22 sq ft minimum of 2 sides of bridle butt. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough.
  6. Crack is good
  7. I have heard that Marcus Gear ( splits leather. I haven't tried them yet but another Brit may dive in. There's also AA Crack ( who have a good selection but it may not necessarily be sourced in England. Gary
  8. You might want to try Abbey. They have a mixture of stuff, some of which may help you. I don't know of any specific supplier in mainland Europe but someone from there may chime in. A good time for you to get stuff from the UK as the pound currently looks like Bob Cratchit's take home pay after stoppages.
  9. Ditto. Well said, Zigzag. Tholek, I just had a look at your site - quite a lot of ill-informed misinformation.
  10. Try this link. It should take you to a fairly recent post that has a few answers. The original post is 'UK Suppliers' on 2 Dec.
  11. I hope Metropolitan works out for you. I have never used them, it was Hendreforgan who recommended them. I had a look at their site and I may give them a try as well.
  12. No pun intended I presume.
  13. Among others and worth a try. Depends exactly what cut you want. There are quite a few others out there, such as the English Leather Co, but they have a minimum order of 300 square ft. Gary
  14. This is the sort of thing you are up against at $10.99. And that's with free shipping to the UK. You may wish to check your previous post where NVLeatherWorx took the time to give some sound guidance.
  15. Sorry, NVLeatherWorx, wasn't replying to you. I was responding to the OPs search for other designs not commenting on materials or the market.
