  1. I recently "inherited" a few carving and stamping tools. I rarely stamp or carve as mostly I repair my own stuff or occasionally make a bridle or 2. In this inherited stuff was a stick with Sapphire Swivel Knife Sharpener on it with what looks to me like emery cloth each side. It will sure put an edge on a knife blade. Black material on one side and red material on the other. Black is for sharpening and red is for polishing. Has anyone any knowledge of this? I have looked on line but gather it was a thing of the past. This one is about worn out but would sure like to get or make one. Thank you kindly for any help
  2. Where to find....

    Try Ranch2Arena.com Jeremiah Watt products. He has horseshoe brand hardware and can probably build what you want
  3. What to put on work surface?? (plywood)

    As a retired builder and if it were my work bench I would but a sheet of formica and be done with it
  4. I can only tell you what the gentleman at Pilgrim Machinery told me. You try pulling a 6" piece of leather and you will get such a hernia....... and I have one to prove his statement!!! And I was only pulling a 3" X 32" piece thru. I have since found and bought a Landis 30 splitter
  5. Moose

    I had a friend that had a pair of bronc chaps made from a moose hide back in about 1954. As I recall, they were pretty heavy leather but very soft and pliable. They seemed to wear pretty good until somebody liked them too much and stole them
  6. I could be wrong (I have been before) it looks to me like the saddle is built on what was known as a Little Wonder tree.
  7. How do I use a pattern?

    I am as green as a gourd when it comes to leather work but if you go to Tandy's site and look up their bag stiffener and watch that video, I think that will pretty much answer your question
