  1. I agree with Mutt.
  2. It looks good. And it's gonna get mud,rain,dirt, and of course bugs on it. If you made it to pretty wouldnt be that way long. And bike are opposed to be cool not pretty.
  3. Looks good. Did you make it flesh side out? Edges looks a bit rough but it's a bike so....... lol
  4. There are mathematical equations for figuring out thread length. But I've found 4 times the thread length works. On thin stuf like wallets I do like 3.5 X length.
  5. It's called a get back. They are generally clipped to the brake handle around here. There are a lot of clubs around here.lol
  6. How is your new process working? Does the dye darken more? Ik damp leather absorbs more dye it seems. Looks like one of dem dare Bulgarian stamps.
  7. I like the idea of having a few pieces clicked out. I hate throwing any of my scrap cutoffs away.lol Just can't justify a clicker.
  8. Yep she loves hitting stuff with a hammer.lol
  9. I know a lot of the toolers and stamped use the magnifier headsets with built in lights.
  10. My 10 yr old made these for her grandparents. She did everything but set the copper rivets. Makes me so nervous when she is cutting stuff out that she is gonna lop off a finger.lol She also made a backpack for Barbie.
  11. No expert but. If you rough the leather tip well to give it a tooth and get good 360 degree coverage on belt and inside the tip with Barge or the like contact cement I don't think it will come off. Have to work fast when putting it on though. That's the only thing I can think of other than putting holes in it and then What? Can't really rivet or sew. Shrug. Kinda stumped myself. Ta. Matt.
  12. Looks good. Stitching a curved zipper is a pain.lol
  13. I'm making a left and right G43 holster and mag carriers this weekend.lol
