  1. Here's another thread... http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=37488entry231893 Regards, Ben
  2. Julia, A lot of people use pigskin for the lining of fenders. In asking around I have heard weights from 2-6 ounce. Many of the older saddlemakers that I have talked to used it exclusively for that purpose rather than latigo. Regards, Ben
  3. Here's some additional links about workbenches, materials, heights, etc. Hope that they help. http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=7316&hl= http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=11770&st=0&p=82514&hl=workbench&fromsearch=1entry82514 http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=19365&st=0&p=125957&hl=workbench&fromsearch=1entry125957 http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=22687&st=0&p=145195&hl=workbench&fromsearch=1entry145195 http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=12317&st=0&p=13088&hl=workbench&fromsearch=1entry13088 http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=22394&st=0&p=143563&hl=workbench&fromsearch=1entry143563 Regards, Ben
  4. Here are some past threads on work shops, work stations and so forth. Hope it gives you some ideas. http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=826&st=80&p=99455&hl=work&fromsearch=1entry99455 http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=6482&st=0&p=73697&hl=shop&fromsearch=1entry73697 http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=27319&st=0&p=172074&hl=workbench&fromsearch=1entry172074 http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=11770&st=0&p=82514&hl=workbench&fromsearch=1entry82514 Regards, Ben
  5. Keith, Somehow I missed this one...WOW! That is certainly a very nice piece...as others have said lots of inspiration there. You did a great job with this one. Regards, Ben
  6. Lynn, Here's some threads on the subject.... Hope it helps. http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=34171&view=findpost&p=211818 Regards, Ben
  7. Ed, They are nice looking as always. You certainly are keeping busy for sure. Regards, Ben
  8. Very nice as always. That is a lot of work! What are these used for...? Are they going to be hung on a wall, used as panels or some other thing? Regards, Ben
  9. Cheryl, Tried it with three different browsers and all of them bring up the PDFs. Do you allow viewing of PDFs inside your browser. You can always right click and save them. Regards, Ben
  10. There are two different versions of the Knurlmaster...standard and deluxe. I have tried some of the knockoffs and they generally don't work as well. These are generally made to touch up existing knurling but I have used them to cut new ones as well. Here's one place that sells both versions but there are plenty of others that sell them. It also lists the additional sets of pattern knurls for the deluxe kit. http://mdmetric.com/prod/meda/medatoolsupply/columnar8018.html?cat_id=1612&&category_site=MEDATOOL Regards, Ben
  11. Here's my recommendation.... http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=26758&st=0&p=168551&hl=maul&fromsearch=1entry168551 Regards, Ben
  12. Trox, You are quite welcome. I am really glad that you found the thread, needle and material information inside. It helped me greatly as I compiled it years ago and has helped some other people over the years even those who didn't have an Adler. Regards, Ben
  13. Here are some older ones that have been sent offline from DiVelbiss, Hackbarth, Ken Rich and Bob Brown. Bob Brown DiVelbliss Hackbarth Ken Rich Regards, Ben
  14. You have already been given some great information for this but here's a compiled document that I put together sometime back for Adlers. However the needle system is the same and should give you some good general guidelines for selection by types of products, size/thickness of material, needle selection charts as well as a chart based on recommendations compiled from various vendors. Go to this thread and get the PDF. It should help guide you on your decisions for guidelines from many different sources. http://leatherworker...ndpost&p=231011 Hope that helps answer a bunch of your questions. I would have strongly suggested that you would have talked with your machine vendor (Steve in this case) and told him what you were trying to do. He would have been most helpful in guiding you as to the decision of needles and thread required. Regards, Ben
  15. I would imagine they are gone from eBay since they posted that message in November 2011. Regards, Ben
