  1. I hope it's what you're looking for.Thanks everyone. Will get some ordered.
  2. Honestly Kevin, I have no idea... The foam I got from knife kits is awesome for holsters. That's what I'm using it for anyway... I don't know how to tell on the density. It's very dense stuff.... Sorry I'm not much help... If you can tell me how to check it without some fancy tool, I'll sure help you out..
  3. I bought some foam for my press from www.knifekits.com They have it in pre cut smaller pieces, but it's an inch thick. I love the foam for the press, but it's too thick for these leggings I'm thinking. Also, thanks Cyberthrasher, I think that's what I'm looking for.
  4. The time has come where I need to build a pair of pick-up chaps. Where do you get your high density foam padding? Thanks for any help!
  5. Here's my latest pair of chaps. Thanks for looking.
  6. I would like to find a couple small pieces of this leather. I need to do a couple inlays and need about a foot square or so.. 6x12 would work fine also.. The leather is more on the turquoise side than blue. Thanks for any help!
  7. I have a customer asking for some lime green zebra print leather. I only need enough for a pair of spur straps. I'm pretty sure I've seen it before... Anyway if someone has a piece they'd sell me that would be great. hair on or smooth, I think I can work with either one.. Prefer smooth. Thanks in advance!!
  8. I buy the Barge in the gallon. Tandys or Weavers both have it.
  9. I know I've seen the stamp I'm thinking of.... It's two rings locked together, I call it a wedding ring.... I used to see them on Ebay all the time and never thought I'd need one... Well, now I do.. Anyone out there have one?? If you don't want to get rid of it real bad, I'd even rent one for a one time use. I will buy it if someone has one they'd like to get rid of. Thanks for any help!!
  10. Here's a few pics of what I've been up to lately. My first armitas,, (finally!!) I've been wanting to do a pair. My twisted fringe shotguns.... Both are out of an awesome buffalo leather I found. The others are a pair of chinks and some shotguns I did a while back. Thanks everybody else for posting pics. They make me want to keep practicing the tooling. It is getting better all the time. But still needs work..
  11. Very Nice!! I like your tooling, especially your border.
  12. I make quite a few headstalls... What I do when I stitch one is put a copper rivet in right behind the buckle. Because when I use a center bar or cart style buckle I have the same issue... You can sew pretty close sideways until you try to turn the corner and go down the length. Then the back of the presser foot pushes on the buckle and messes up your stitching. When using a rivet it keeps everything tight and secure and you can space your stitching down just far enough to make everything nice and even. I have a left presser foot on my machine and that doesn't help any with the problem I run in to. Anyway, that's how I do it...
