  1. Tim, do you have any contact info, I might like to give him a buzz?
  2. I second that. nstarleather sells quite a bit of stuff there and is a pleasure to deal with. I have bought some Essex (from horween) a couple times and it may fit the bill of your milled/tumbled. It has been nearly as flexible as the mill tanned chap leather that I have bought. I would send a pm, maybe there is some to be had I have also bought a bunch of stuff from a local boot, saddle and general leather work shop. I have bought scrap and several square feet off of a side. So that might be an option.
  3. Most times for me cropping out the extra from the photo around the edges is enough to bring down the file size
  4. NorthStar had some grey hides, not vegtanned, but nice leather. May be worth a look. It was in the for sale - leather and lace section.
  5. Here is what I have been using. The ones on the right are cheep ones off amazon wich I have been very happy with and far better than the 4 that fit on one handle from Tandy. The one on the left is a more expensive one from goods Japan. I would not hesitate to buy those cheeper ones again.
  6. Nope, I will stick to my rum and Coke.
  7. I don't think I have ever seen the bottom of a bottle of wine so my supply of corks is not there, lol.
  8. If you don't want the dog holes, a piece of dowel and some glue and the hole can go away
  9. What are these two and what would the be used for if you don't mind me asking?
  10. knives

    Nice work!!
  11. I had not thought of that, good idea. Some times with white or cream I will sometimes pick up some crud on the thread.
  12. Here is what I use mostly. It is very similar to tiger thread but cheaper and comes in more colors. Cards/Amann/Serabraid_ColourCard_Scan.pdf
  13. Si, I went into more detail in my first post. I was just pointing out that it sounds like it would work for this application quite well
  14. So her is the bit I was talking about. It goes in a drill. This one I believe is for a 1/4" hole. I used to use it on some rubber that was about 3/8" or 1/2" thick and reinforced with nylon strands. It worked nicely. No heating required. Pricey though, I believe it was like $28.
  15. I am not sure what that material is. I have a hole punch that is made to go in a drill. It is shaped, on the business end, much like a hole punch you would strike with a mallet. It is used in making holes in very heavy rubber conveyor belt and attaching the hinge seam. I originally got it from applied. If that sounds like something you might be interested in I can try to remember to take a picture of it this evening to help in your search.
