  1. A different sort of wallet

    Thank you everyone for the responses and positive comments!!! You all made my day !!! I look at the the amazing leather pieces that others have made with veg tan leather, and not sure if I belong here as I work lighter weight chrome dyed leather. Thank you for validating what I do.
  2. SInger 29-4 Grease vs Oil?

    Thank you CowboyBob. I'll stick with clear oil, I want my machine to keep running for a long time. Would it be something it it lasted another 100 years?!
  3. A different sort of wallet

    Thank you Vaelloc and TomWisc! The eyes are reverse painted and have about 15 layers of paint. They're fun to do but time consuming (and the paint takes a while to fully dry with all of the layers)

  7. A different sort of wallet

    Here's a wallet I made with a handpainted glass eye. The greenish textured leather around the eye is pigskin. Here's looking at you!
  8. I'm the new owner of a Singer 29-4 machine, this is my first experience with a machine of this type. I have a reprint of the manual which shows oiling points; I've circled the areas in red where I think it might be better to use a grease rather than and oil. When these machines were made, they didn't have the types of machine lubricants that exist now. Since there are "gears" on the machine , would it be better to grease these areas rather than oil them? If so, would something like Tri-Flow TF23004 Clear Synthetic Grease be a good grease to use? Any other areas where grease might be better? Which oil would be better to use on the areas the areas that need oiling Lily white or Triflow? On my embroidery machines, I was told by several techs at different shops to use triflow on them instead of regular machine oil. Thank you for taking the time to read this and any help.
  9. This was my first leather satchel

    Very nice!!!!
  10. Refillable journal covers

    Thank you for the compliments! I know it's not your traditional leather work. I just really enjoy working and creating with the lighter weights leather (versus veg tan). Plus I don't have the tools for veg tan LOL I'll take the pictures of the inside of one as soon as I finish another one. (The ones shown have sold)
  11. Refillable journal covers

    Here's a few refillable leather sketch journal covers I've made:
  12. Wolf purse

    Thank you for the compliments!
  13. Simple Basketweave Belt

    Fantastic!
  14. Singer 29-4 belt slipping

    Thank you for the suggestion about slipping the belt off. Will make that a habit along with regular oiling
  15. Wolf purse

    Thank you. I used an embroidery machine to do the wolf. It is a special digitizing program that creates the files that can then be read by the machine to stitch.
