  2. Wood bar?

    Hi I would like to know if someone knows if the bars of this handbag are made of wood or are they made of another material. I think that they are made of wood but I’m not sure because I guess wood bars could bent... Could someone help me? Thanks
  3. Brass lock and escutcheons pins

    I would like to make another question, Gary. I’m gonna buy in abbeyengland dee rings, buckles and trigger hooks, all of them to use with the brass locks. I have a doubt: when I look at the pictures (buckles...) it looks like if the “colour” of the brass is not the same as the colour of the locks (more yellow, more orange...) Do you know if this is because of the way the photos were taken or is it that the “colour“ of the brass is really different? Thank you very much.

  11. How to do lap point

    Hi I wont to do bags with lap points (similars to the photo), I'm trying to do them but it's very difficult to stitch them because I don't know how to hold the leather when I've done the first "stitching line". I've been looking for some video for a long time but I've haven't found what I'm looking for. Anyone knows how can I do this? Thank you very much.
  12. Vergez blanchard pricking iron

    Isn't it very difficult to work with the wheel above of all to get it straight? thanks
  13. Vergez blanchard pricking iron

    Thank you very much!!! The Crimson chisels look nice, but I think maybe they make too wide holes...and I've just found few opinions of it. The Amy Roke looks nice too, but I have to wait 2 month for the production and the shipping to Spain (too much time for me) The Wuta are really cheaper and look nice, but just a few opinions again... I've been having a look at the Osborne too, but it makes too wide holes. I'm not sure about the Blanchard ones, but I think that they are the ones that make smaller holes. Thanks

    Thanks Mattsbagger!!! Someone else please?
  15. Hi I'm thinking to buy a #7 or #8 vergez blanchard pricking iron to make handbags and belts with vachetta leather (cowhide). I would like to know the "perfect" size of thread for the blanchard (au chinois?, tiger?) I would like to know too if the stitch will be better than the stitch of the picture (chisel 2mm + thread 0,6mm) Thanks (and sorry for my bad english)
