Thread burning but not the leather!

6 posts in this topic

Been using a thread burner for a while now but sometimes I slip and scar the leather.

Now I use this shield (piece of brass sheet metal with holes). No more scars.

That is a cool idea, I've just been using a cheap .75 cent butane lighter, like the $1.50 "Thread Burners" they sell in the Springfield catalogue :) As far as your shield, couldn't you accomplish the same thing if the brass had a slit, instead of a hole? I think it might be easier than threading that hole.

CaptQuirk,

Yes a slit might work too.

This is what I use.  No more lighters.  I love it.  I can mushroom the thread back in to the hole/slot and you know even know its there.  No more burning the leather with a lighter.
