    Making a maul (Rawhide! Yeehah!).

    No worries, Yin. The dark centre of the mass doesn't feel damp, but it's obvious that it can't be completely dry yet. It has formed a pretty solid lump, though, as it can be screwed along the rod without any of the discs coming loose. I'm going away for a couple of weeks so I'll let it stand, open at both ends.

    Is it a Pfaff 1245 or a 1246

    Ok a bit more digging turns out that this is a Pfaff 1242.

    Hand sewing long runs

    There's a trick I saw in a Weaver Leathercraft video that might be helpful. Chuck Dorset does a thing where he passes about half of the thread through each of the needles, which reduces the distance by half. Take a look at his video here and jump to around 15:20 to see it done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEsSbYBLxD4

    That looks awesome!
  7. I actually just sold this. I measured the customer and lengthened accordingly. She loves it!
  8. Here is my newly built clicker press for under $175. All of the sales and certain matching coupons I have for harbor freight matched up this last full moon. The press for $100 and the air/hydro for $72. Score.

    KittenThrasher - how did you attach the burnisher to your old bench grinder?

    Making a maul (Rawhide! Yeehah!).

    Coming along quite well. I have an old mallet that needs new rawhide discs, so I've been following along on this to see if I can glean some insight on how to accomplish it. Thanks for sharing so far! YinTx

    I was in a rush and just wanted to pass along that it wasn't a working link in case the OP wanted to know. Thanks.
  16. SPI? standard or slimline? Thanks, YinTx

    Hand sewing long runs

    That's it. I can do it in my sleep(probably do it better that way) but it's hard to put it into words. Cheers!

    So pumped!

    Hi everybody! (Complete with Grover arms) I am sooooo pumped! I just finished paying for, and am picking up tomorrow, a Cobra 4 -16” and a Thompson Walking Foot machine! I also am the proud owner of a paper weight with a treadle, that says it’s a Singer 29-something. I get to try and fix that up on my own. Fun! My husband has kindly cleared the garage out for a leather/craft shop and plans are underway to change a church table into a leather table! Can clear shoe boxes with foam for my stamps be far away? I’m going to ask a gentleman in the area to make sure the two new machines are in spec. I have been told he’s really good with industrial machines, soooo, yeah, pumped! I’ve been talking to several people about learning from real professionals about shoe/boot making/repair and saddlemaking/repair. So, do any of you have names of people in the Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas or South Dakota areas that give lessons about shoes/boots/saddles/harness? oh, and now I get the museum of sewing machines tendency! The right tool for the right job! Sorry about before!

    You can just glue them together, but remember to make a hem. It looks more professional, and keeps your edges from fraying. Oh. Sorry, this is if you are using fabric for the liner.
