  5. hand stitching, thread breaking

    hello, just wanting to see what all your ideas are on keeping your thread from breaking from accidentally piercing it with the second needle. Hope that you can get what I am meaning. I am using prewaxed thread with big, extremely, sharp CS Osborne glovers needles. I am sewing up a cantle binding and getting really frustrated. anyone got any ideas? Thank you

  7. Rosette Cutter

    Hello, just curious what brand you all think makes the best rosette cutter? Right now I am looking at either one from Douglas tools or one from CS Osborne. CS Osborne is a bit more affordable but if I would rather buy the best then save a little bit. Also what size do most of you get for on saddles? Thankyou
  8. need help with my tooling

  9. need help with my tooling

    how can I get that depth and color?
  10. Here are some pics of my tooling and one that was tooled by Paul Vandyke, which is kind of what I am trying to get. I draw my own patterns as I am doing custom work for other people. So I need someone to tell me What I am doing wrong. Why isnt my tooling turning out proper? I cased it overnight and let dry to to pretty much completly natural. It doesnt have that smooth proffesional look that a lot of you guys can do. Is the way I draw my patterns? Thanks for any input
  11. Do you just sponge the water and acid on and let it sit?
  12. Sorry went on and read some posts that pretty much answered my question. Thanks!
  13. Hi, I get black spots on my leather when I case it. I use Herman oak. I tried buying water cause I thought maybe there was metal in the water. I just did a cantle and it's peppered with black spots. Kind of discouraging. How do you fix it?
