  1. Sell leather splitting machine Camoga CN403

    Omg I wish this was in the states
  2. Fortuna band knife splitter for sale

    Hey @randyrann, I’m interested! Sent you a PM
  3. Los Angeles Clicking

    Still looking for clicking?
  4. Barry King dot so-what

    I don't really see what the purpose of this thread is? You think Barry King swivel knifes are too expensive? Oh dot well. That being said, is someone buys you a Robert Beard swivel knife just PM for my address. I'll pay for shipping.
  5. "Can I have a discount?"

    They wanted to buy two items both upwards of $150. Unfortunately, they said "I always ask whenever I buy multiple items."
  6. Had someone ask me that. Curious if anyone here has been asked that. If so, what was your response? When I started, I priced everything just below market value. No room for marketing gimmicks, or even wholesale. It's hard explaining that to a potential customer. Especially when you were trying to do them a solid by not outrageously marking up your products in the first place.
  7. How to edge tight spaces?

    In this instance, I need to edge all the way to the very end of these slits. Punch a little hole to allow relief for the nose of the edger?
  8. Best value for leather

    Never worked with Bridle before. Does it burnish?
  9. Wish I still lived over there!
  10. So Cal leather splitter/skiver?

    They have two Camoga. Don’t quote me on this but I think it’s 14”-16” wide max.
  11. So Cal leather splitter/skiver?

    Heritage leather has band knife splitting services available. They charge $50/hr. Expensive if you’re only going a few things but worth it if you need them to be prestinely split. My advice would be to bring a whole bunch of stuff to use that hour up! I have my belt blanks split there sometimes.
  12. Where to research Tanning Facts/Info?

    I imagine sarcasm is the secret ingredient. Seriously thank you for your post though! Huge help.
  13. A few things I'm curious about... Brief outline of the chemistry behind vegetable and chrome tanning What the byproducts of the tanning process are/can be used for The process behind certain types of specialty leather (i.e. Bridle, Horween) What part of the process deciphers how well the leather will tool Any other fun interesting things!
  14. Best value for leather

    And can only be ordered 10 a time (about $2,070 for A/B after shipping).
  15. Best value for leather

    I just spent nearly $300 dollars on a side of #1 Hermann Oak saddle skirting. Beautiful leather but it's reserved for customer who want to pay a premium. The guy it buy from said Chahin is a nice tannery in Mexico though. Might be worth checking out!
