  1. Hand press help

    Ive been looking at hardware from Ohio travel bag, but not sure if other brandies will work with their stuff
  2. Hand press help

    What are the post sizes? Do you only use their hardware? Lot of them are listed as metric.
  3. Hand press help

    I've been trying to decide on the following hand presses. Craftool pro press, little wonder or Osbourne hand machine. The problem is no one machine offers all the dies I want. My questions: 1. Are any of the dies compatible with each other? 2. If not, what are the sizes of the dies for each machine, or the size of hole's on each machine. (If it came down to it, I could buy the machine with smallest holes and use lathe to turn down posts on larger diameter dies to fit or make/buy adapter)
  4. American St Louis crank splitter

    I’m not the best with how the forum works, but since you @‘d him, he should Get a notification correct? Or should I send him an email
  5. American St Louis crank splitter

    I picked up this little beast for just under $250.1 adjustment screw for blade is not original ( I think) and handle for thickness selector is gone and top smoother over. My original thought was just clean it up and be done, but now I’m thinking about having someone do a restoration on it. I’m having problems finding info and diagrams that are legible. Anyone have decent scans/pics of them? Also thinking of taking some liberties with the paint, maybe red and black with scroll/Sheridan accents???
  6. Just out of curiosity, could you maybe put some more info here? You have over a dozen products and each product has multiple colors and sizes, so essentially you have hundreds of different products. Are you looking for a complete start to finish manufacturer or someone to assemble ready made parts? Approximately how many units per month, or is it made to order? I see your particular about your imported leather so would you be supplying it or would it be up to the new "maker" to import it.
  7. Carving graphics on leather

    First and foremost after you learn about casing the leather you need to decide how you want it to look. You have to determine what is going to be the foreground part and what will be background, and start there. You separate the 2 with either color, like the Ashley notebook, or with some sort of background stamp like the pic from Djole or with beveling on outside edge of design.

    No idea, I would think admin or maybe forum moderator could do it, but I'm sure they have better things to do than sort through outdated posts. Always best to chech the original post date when replying to something.

  11. Guitar Strap

    I have to admit that I love your style, and it transfers to leather work in an amazing way!
  12. Nerf Gun Holster

    Very cool. How is it attached? Is it attached to large belt or corset? Have any other pics showing more?
  13. 1st try at stock cuff

    With the exception of the metal gromets, that looks like it came straight out of the past and would be in a museum! Reminds me of cave paintings back home. Very nice work, great style in my opinion.
  14. Clever but easy

    Very cool! One question, how do you go about sewing zipper in to a curve? Ive been looking for a video or something for awhile and no luck.
