  1. Hi. Do you have any pebbled leather, I'm looking for orange, that is 4-5 ounce?
  2. Skiving/splitting wickett 3mm leather

    Thanks! I’ve actually seen this video before a while ago. It does work. I will try it again on the WC.
  3. Skiving/splitting wickett 3mm leather

    Ok I will check those things. Yes please post pics for me! Ok thanks. I won’t try wetting it anymore. Checking out that thread now!
  4. Skiving/splitting wickett 3mm leather

    Ok thanks that gives me some ideas!
  5. Skiving/splitting wickett 3mm leather

    Now it won’t move the leather..tried a 1 inch width piece. My knife was just sharpened yesterday so that is not an issue. Are there other adjustments I can try? I have the piece that rolls close as possible to the bell blade..the blade is close to the foot...what else?
  6. Skiving/splitting wickett 3mm leather

    Sonydaze im trying to get to 2-3 mm. I was wrong..it is 5 mm now. I just tried something. I dipped a piece of scrap in water then blotted it off..leather glides through now. So now I will play around and keep skiving until I get it thin enough. I saw something online about casing leather..so I thought maybe a quick dip would help..it did lol.

    Ok yes please load a picture when you can. Thanks!
  8. Skiving/splitting wickett 3mm leather

    Ok. Yes I know it is for skiving..that’s what I use it for normally. But I want to use the bridle leather I have for my strap...as trimming too. So I need a front label to stamp my logo on, two pieces to attach my o rings. I believe it is 3mm. So my pieces will only be about 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 inch wide. currently it’s way too thick to do the trimmings. I have a skiving knife, but that’s not working out. I don’t have a manual splitter. All I have is the skiving machine.
  9. Hi. I have a consew dcs s4. I need to split some 3 mm wicket and Craig bridle leather to use for stamping my logo and making the holders for my d rings on a purse. Will this machine do this? If so, what adjustments do I need to make? I tried it and the leather only moves a little then stops.
  10. Adding firmness to raw edge straps

    That turned out great! I love the front. It’s like the Hermès birkin. That kind of bag is on my list lol! Very impressive bag you made!
  11. Music bag

    That is gorgeous, you did a fine job!
  12. Zipper placement

    Ok I will post a pic. It’s nothing special. it took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about lol. I guess it was time for a serious picture because I have a lot of work ahead of me lol. Thanks though!
  13. Zipper placement

    Yes I have seen that but it’s specific for a zippered wallet. I’m just needing a general tool that would work with any placement. I ended up doing this....I payed a strip of masking tape down... then measured how much space I wanted between the teeth and the leather... I then cut a thick bag stiffener the exact width I measured... put double sided tape on it and stuck it to the masking tape... so I can just move that around my bag to make sure everything is spaced the same.
  14. No problem! Glad I could help!
  15. I love the colors! Great work for your second bag. Being able to make your own pattern is a huge bonus. I have a tip for you when it comes to lining the bags. You need to make a separate pattern for your lining. This is because it needs to be smaller than your outside pattern so it fits neatly inside. I make my lining pattern 1/16 smaller than the outside. You can start there and adjust it smaller if you find the lining is still a little too big inside. If you already knew this than disregard lol!
