  1. Radio bucket

    Yeah I just lined up the edges and stitched. The strap that hooks to the belt behind the back is called a anti sway strap so when you bend forward the radio does not slide to the front, I did not use one for awhile but quickly realized the need for it ! Thanks ! I kinda call it snakeskin but now that I hear it cheetah sounds like a better description, I just use a piece of plastic webbing and airbrush my dye over it leaves a pretty cool pattern. We are using the Motorala XTS 2500 not the fanciest radio but is reliable and gets the job done:-)
  2. Hey guys and gals here is my latest project. It is a radio bucket for carrying radios in the field, pretty fun build and my first time using a box stitch so excited to learn how to do that ( quite a learning curve). Any comments and question s welcome

  6. my first Wallet

    Looks good, only tip I have is if you are using edge paint keep building up the paint on the edge and sand in between layers with 1000 grit sandpaper until you get a nice rounded edge.
  7. Hey guys and gals just looking for opinions on sewing machines. I am looking at a cb4500 for 2400 dollars but that is a large chunk of change . I hand sew everything right now and enjoy it but am enthralled with how well this machine stitches straight, true and fast , was going to buy cheaper but I figured if I am gonna spend the money might aswell get one for everything I will ever need to do. Any thoughts welcome
  8. Hey fellas and lady's, I have been in this craft for three year's, my work is fairly good in my opinion but I desire to achieve mastery I know it takes time, and is a lifelong process but was curious if there is any tips you can give me to better my advancement in this craft and avoid platues and mistakes before I make them. Any comments and tips are welcome not just for me, but others seeking the same knowledge. Thank you for your time and sharing of knowledge and the passion for this craft.
  9. Need advice

    Hey fellas I need some help, I have made alot of belts but never any with Sheridan style carvings on them, so my qouistion is I am trying to hand draw my own design but am unsure whether to make a small design on paper and reapeat it or make a paper blank of the whole belt and make my design on that. Also how do you draw desighns that would look good on the minimal width of a belt . Thank you
  10. EMS Radio strap

    I have thought about vertical just never liked the way the radio sits, so I make sure to leave half an inch between screw and edge just gotta hope it will hold
  11. Amazing just amazing, do you happen to have a picture of the inside
  12. Trauma shear sheath

    Yeah the strap is less for the scissor falling out and more so the scissor can not be pulled out by someone and used as a weapon, yes it has happened before :-/
