  5. Holster VIDEOs 'n' stuff

    I am a newbie to leather as such I have watched damn near every video on holster making that is out there. I agree with JLS, the Andrews videos are the best I have seen for the amount of knowledge Mr. Andrews gives in building the holster and tips and tricks he has learned in this craft. For some reason my patterns come out too small or too large.....lol I guess that is the learning part. Screw up and you get to do it again learning from my mistakes. I would also like to find out how to figure the proportions of the 80/20 holster without wasting a bunch of leather in trial and error. JLS, I have used your patterns as a starting point for the P228-229 and p220 series Sigs and finally have a pattern that fits after a couple of tries. I do appreciate your sharing the patterns.
  6. Thanks for the quick reply. I will use it on the next project.
  7. I want to stay with the natural color of the leather. No dyes or such, just natural color of leather. Will Acrylic Resolene do the job? I would like a little gloss to the finish. Any suggestions ?
  8. Snaps?

    Are the snaps used on the ww2 mag. pouches still available? If so where would I find a supplier? Thanks,
  9. Henley swivel knife

    Does Henley still make the knives? I have tried to call their office in Shreveport but can not get anyone. Call goes to voicemail that will not accept messages. Any ideas? If

    They will keep lowering the price until it sells. I have picked up machine tools and welders really cheap from them. The shipping is what gets me to Texas.
  11. hgrinc.com has several of the above presses for sale. I thought someone might be interested.
  12. Contact Cement

    What about Barge's TF product? I will check out the Renia brand.
  13. Contact Cement

    Does all contact cements have the smell and health issues as Barge and Masters?
  14. Do I need two machines?

    Well I am halfway there...I found a nice used Cowboy 3200 that was local. I am looking at a 1206 from Bob for my wife. I noticed the 206rb would sew 46 thru 207. The 1206 shows 69 Thur 207. That's what the manuals show any way and the safety on the 206. i like the additional thread spread on the 206 but not for the extra funds. Is the safety worth the extra for a new guy?
  15. Wife wants to sew light leather (2 to 6oz) and nylon webbing to maybe 1/4" thick. I want to make holsters, gun belts, knife sheaths, etc. I don't want to be adjusting everything. What should I be looking at for both our needs? I would like to buy used if possible. Would also like fair pricing on whatever y'all recommend. Prices seem to be all over the place for machines I have looked at on the internet. Thanks for your help. I live close to the metromess of Dallas-Ft Worth.
