  1. Wanted: Vintage Craftool Stamps 294, 538, 803

    My apologies, I definitely was not clear on this! Hahaha! I am looking for the older Craftool versions of these particular stamps...Particularly ones made between 1963 - and even into the 70s, 80s. Ones labeled "Craftool Co." followed by just a 2 or 3 digit number, or "Craftool Co." followed by a letter prefix and number. As well as those labeled "Craftool Co. USA" followed by a prefix and number.

  3. Border Stamp Identification

    NVLeatherWorx...Thank you for such an informative reply! I had a suspicion the area tooled next to the snaps was done by a press, but didn't even think about the entire belt itself being pressed. The fact that these belts are churned out in numbers and ALL look exactly alike makes me think they are not hand-tooled, and further lends credit to your observation of the use of a press. Good eye, sir! And thanks again for your reply! Regards, SH
  4. Border Stamp Identification

    Hey guys and gals, I was wondering if anyone might be familiar with the border stamp used on this championship belt. I have searched around Craftool, Barry King, and some other makers, but cannot seem to find it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you all for what you do! SH
  5. Stamp Identification Help

    Thank you all kindly for your answers. It is for a championship belt; just a one-time thing. Unfortunately I don’t have access to a press or embossing role; so I may have to look into getting a custom stamp made. One individual I spoke with who did a similar pattern had to tool the pebbling individually, so looks like this one might be a bit of a challenge! Thanks again everyone for your time! I appreciate it so much. SH
  6. Stamp Identification Help

    Hello good people, I was wondering if any of you guys and gals might know of a stamp similar to the one in the attached picture? Not sure if it’s an “X”-style geometric stamp or the diamond stamp I would need. Needing to do a row of these for a belt If anyone may be able to point me in the right direction, I’d be forever grateful. Thanks and have a great weekend!

  8. “Raised” Effect/Beveling

    Hey Stetson! Yessir just the beveler. Using 8-9oz leather. Thank you so much immiketoo! I am absolutely going to look at some steep bevelers. I picked up a tool at Springfield the other day, “Craft Japan F896” which I think could help. Haven’t had the chance to use it yet, but we shall see. Thank you all again!
  9. saving money on granite

    Hey Biker, I’m in Northwest Arkansas. And desperately needing a larger granite piece to replace my 6x6. Haha. Whereabouts you located sir?
  10. “Raised” Effect/Beveling

    Here is one I completed recently. Maybe I’m not beveling deep enough?
  11. “Raised” Effect/Beveling

    I was using a basic Barry King checkered beveler tool, but due to tennis elbow I have recently switched over to a push beveler and Beader that I purchased from Bruce Johnson. The Barry King beveler I had looked very similar to the Tandy B701. Thank you!
  12. Hello guys/gals, I am trying to achieve the raised effect as seen and highlighted in the picture attached. No matter how much I bevel and bevel, I cannot seem to achieve anywhere near this result. I know a lot of this can be attributed to my sub-par beveling skills, but I thought I could at least achieve something close to the picture. Any ideas/tips to help achieve this sort of raised look? Thank you all so much for input.
  13. Type of Stamp?

    Thank you Tony and Gabriel, so much! Ive has this tool for awhile, but wasn’t getting the desired effect until literally just now after taking Gabriel’s advice of keeping the tool constantly rotated. Thank you so much Gabriel!
  14. Type of Stamp?

    Hello, I was wondering if any of you great guys/gals may be able to point me in the right direction of how this particular tooling is achieved. Is this done using a particular stamp? Thank you as always! (The stamping/tooling in question is done inside next to where the snaps are located)
