  1. Table for 3200

    Thanks Bob love the machine as it’s sewn everything I’ve needed it to sew. The table addition just makes it a little easier.
  2. Cost of Glitz vs Function

    We and them are all makers and artists in our own way. Just as we put our marks on a piece of leather they put theirs on the tools they make. They add “bling” as you say to make their pieces stand out amongst the other tools out there. Exotic wood handles don’t really add that much to the cost of tool as the amount of wood being used isn’t of a large enough quantity to make a major increase in cost. The cost of this exotic wood adds probably less than $15 to the overall coots of the tool. So 5-10% of the overall cost of a knife. A $20 watch tells time well enough so why buy a $100 or $5000 one? Simply cause you can and you like it and the nicer watches keep time better. We all have to make a decision during our beginning and throughout our time in the craft on what tools will give us the quality of work we(clients) want. If you have the opportunity to buy the “blinged” out tool and you like then buy it. We all use our tools to do work and some of us like the tools we use to be unique or nice. Their is nothing wrong with this.
  3. Table for 3200

    Was having a bit of trouble sewing wallets on my 3200 so I made a quick table to aid in keeping items level while I stitch. Need to make the throat a bit deeper on the table but it works as is quite well.
