  1. Black River Laser Phone Number?

    Spoke with them a few weeks ago, said they were slammed with Ebay orders.
  2. My Laser Cut Tool Rack

    I like it, planned out with room for change. Noticed a while back someone was using PVC pipe. I believe it was layered/angled and hung on a wall. Curious if anyone is using this type system and could share plans/pictures?
  3. Zack White - Where's My Order?

    I would also agree about phoning in orders, instead of web purchasing. I haveheard doing business with any company you are better off calling. Web order shipping prices are almost always more expensive. ASK THEM what shipping will be. You will see quite a difference. Hope it helps
  4. Question On Adhesives

    Hi Tboyce, I have used both and have found that the water based don't stand up as well. I use Barge on most pieces. Hope this helps? The Renman
  5. Have to agree with Eaglestroker, Pig split is soft and durable.
  6. Chief, Same here, I was asking him that I use a lot of barge (with dyes you mentioned also) on projects, mostly linings and he suggested using some Aussie, because my hands have been cracking. I guess we are "a hide" just like the Veg tan we work with..lol.
  7. A little off topic, was in my local Tandy shop recently and the Manager mentioned that he even uses Aussie as a hand lotion. and puts on before he dyes/works with glue. Never used it myself these ways. Curious if any others have? RenMan
  8. I have tried a lot of adhesives on various projects. Have to agree with Matt T, Barge the best.
  9. Robust Patterning Material

    I would have to suggest www.blackriverlaser.com They make sturdy acrylic templates at a reasonable price.
  10. A Pair Of Vambraces

    Kevinp, Thanks for clearing up the mystery. Looking forward to seeing the pictures.
  11. A Pair Of Vambraces

    Quick question to the group. I have been making bracers/gauntlets for a few years now and curious what is the difference with them and Vambraces? Is it the length, style or cut? Any comments welcome Renman
  12. Need New Supplier

    Hi there, I agree, American Leather Direct (leather is quality). Also try ohiotravelbag.com (lots and lots of all kinds of hardware). Good luck RenMan
  13. Belt Template

    I second BRL. Quality templates and Joyce is great to work with.
  14. Medieval Joker Custom Leather Armor Completed

    Prince, Your work is truly inspiring/mad respect...Curious are any of your pieces featured in movies, TV, etc.? If so would like to know (if you don't mind). Thanks for sharing RenMan
  15. A Pair Of Vambraces

    Greetings, Very nice carving/tooling. If I may suggest adding eyelets to the lace holes and adding a lining. Just a thought. Keep up the good work.
  16. Im Looking For A Stapler To Make Keepers

    I do have the P35. Uses 3/8"/10mm #356 by Arrow. Doesn't give a count on box cost approx. $11. Zack's also sells these. Have used it on 8-OZ leather goes through no problem. Hope this helps?
  17. Modify Arbour Press

    Hey Leaherbaron, Great tip,thanks for sharing..
  18. Im Looking For A Stapler To Make Keepers

    Sorry about link...Not sure about the nevaclog. I have the Arrow and it works well (imho).
  19. Im Looking For A Stapler To Make Keepers

    Try this one, www.zachwhite.com just type stapler in search.
  20. Flame Dragon Armor

    Amazing as usual. Was this armor made for a movie/commercial/other?
  21. I agree with northmount, air brush bottles are great. Check out http://www.tcpglobal.com they have a large selection.
  22. Small Tricks For The Leatherworker

    Putting bees wax on your punches makes them cut better and easier to remove leather from inside the punch, also for smaller punches (say 1/16") use a thin needle to clear out leather. For threading a needle, use a flat mallet to smash down lace/thread, works very well on waxed thread.
  23. Cardboard Sheets

    If you want a more permanent pattern, check out http://www.blackriverlaser.com Joyce is great to work with.
  24. BRL (black river laser) Cannot say enough great things about them, have been ordering bracer templates from them also accurate and Joyce is a Rock Star when it comes to customer service..

      Did you send them an original template? I just looked on their site and only came across belt templates and guitar strap templates?
