  1. Good things come to those that wait

    No I’m in Texas. And you should have taken that deal if it was in good shape. That’s about the lowest I’ve seen for a cylinder arm machine.
  2. So I’ve been searching for a machine to help speed things up with projects I have going on. And also allow me to tackle bigger projects I’ve been putting off due to the amount of time it would have taken to hand stitch. Almost bought a cowboy 3200 a few weeks ago but held off thinking something might show up locally. Well it did. I found a new never used cobra class 4 with all the extras a few miles away. Guy said make an offer I told him I had $2000 and he said come get it. It’s now in its new home and works like a champ. Has to be one of the best deals I’ve ever come across at least to my benefit.
  3. Who’s got the best deal cb3200

    Ok thanks guy I guess I will hold out a little bit longer. And see if anything pops up locally. By chance does any know some one near Houston about to get out of the business
  4. Well it is big for sure but that’s what they wanted. It’s a little on the heavy side but it’s built to last. And as for the buckle that looks upside down if you turn it around the other way it tries to undue it’s self.
  5. I was gifted a box of boot tops in trade for a purse made out of some of them earlier this year. I had been putting it off due to not having a machine capable of the task. Still don’t have the machine I need but I’m working on that. There is definitely a learning curve in bag building but I learned a few things in the process. All in all it turned out better than I had expected. All part of the purse are up-cycled from other items except the strip of veg tan around the bottom. Kinda nice to give something a new life. Everything was sewn on a Japanese singer 15 clone.
  6. Who’s got the best deal cb3200

    Ok sound like my decision has Been made by default then. Are you talking used through the dealer or used private sale. Do dealer used machines come with the same warranty as new machines. The way I read the warranty is it only applies to the original purchaser.
  7. I’m in the market for a cowboy 3200. Who’s got the best deal going right now. I’m near Houston but haven’t been able to find any dealers local. I talked to solar leather up near Dallas today and they gave me a quote, but wanted to see if any other dealers were closer, or cheaper.
  8. So I there’s a listing local to me for a consequent 225 cylinder arm machine but through the power of google I have yet to find that model in a cylinder arm. Is it listed wrong or am channeling my inner inspector clouseau and just missing it. Here is a picture from the listing.
  9. Double shoulder holster

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. It was a lot of stitching. Make me want to start looking for a machine (I’m open to suggestions). I definitely hope that I can get a piece of the paintball market. I think it might be one of the last untapped areas haven’t seen a whole lot of custom leather goods show up there ( fingers crossed).
  10. Double shoulder holster

    Thank y’all for the compliments. Yes it definitely took some planning and forward thinking about how I wanted everything to attach and not to bulky. I think I got a little lucky also this was my first attempt at a shoulder holster.
  11. Recent project I just finished for a guy out in California that does competitive paintball. Definitely a challenge to make everything fit and be comfortable with the size of the paintball guns. Everything was hand stitched definitely need to get a machine. All veg tan 5/6 and 8/9 oz leather. Used 1mm thread from makers leather supply awesome thread, and can’t beat the price. Fiebings russet brown dye. Antique copper hardware from tandy. Had a great time designing this and working with the customer. Hope for many more projects like this in the future.
  12. Butt stock sleeve/cover

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments.
  13. Butt stock sleeve/cover

    I was trying to get a wood stock for the picture but you know how thinks go. Lipstick on a pig. Rohn I agree. Any you can suggest I’m all ears I’m still buying tools a few at a time, and still pretty new to this started in March of this year and I try to learn something from each project so I can make the next one better
  14. Recently finished up this butt stock cover for a guy up north of Seattle. 8oz veg custom inlay suede lined cheek riser. All fiebings dye. Really like the way it turned out. Let me know what y’all think.
