  1. Google search revealed this:
  2. BJP Not sure how to say this. I did a Google search with these key words: dog collar with a restraint handle yielded this: Now looking at the pictures I can't see where a template is needed. Seems like a separate loop of leather, riveted to the existing collar would work. Maybe I'm missing some fine point since I haven't made any dog collars. Anyway, hope the pictures can help you.

  3. If you are near the Tri-Cities (Richland, Pasco, Kennewick) there are few guys here that get together and share ideas. Herb is our knife sheath maker. If you are near Yakima, I've got another fella and some in Walla Walla and Milton-Freewater some more. And Spokane has Ken Bush and company. Check out and the public newsletter, the RawHide Gazette ( )for some of our efforts. Welcome.
  4. There is an article with patterns in it for the Buck 100 knife by Bill Churchill. It is at the PSLAC website in their Member Only section ( ) near the bottom at: ( ) I'm sorry that PSLAC has a Member Only section, but that it how they support their website without monitary support from any sponsors. They do have leather sponsors, but they only offer discounts to PSLAC members when purchasing leather products. BTW way there is a monthly newsletter The RawHide Gazette that is in their Public section. Please see: Hope this helps.
  5. I was hoping that The Leather Machine Company would take over the lead of the show, much like FERDCO did in the old days. I sure like the look of the Cobra Class 3....

  13. The domain name sometimes gives a clue. Please see:
  14. Just to clarify. The groups to look at are set in the CONTENT TYPES, where you can select TOPICS, then using the "gear" symbol, you can select the FORUMS (sewing, etc.) that you want to follow. I remember working on software, before I retired, and helping people design user interfaces, I gave them this quote: "Flexibility is the key to indecision." In other words, when you have many options to customize--you can get lost in the process, but I find the ability to customize searches/sorts save me a lot of time, once I figure them out.
