  3. Thanks for the advice guys. I am going to try doing a few pieces without the heater and see if it makes a difference. I want to also try the heater method with a different hide, to single out the quality issue. Rayban, that is great advice! I had actually about decided that also. I did one piece in black and it came out fine. this hide might be destined for black products!
  4. Hey guys, I'm looking for some advice. Recently I began noticing water stains on the leather after drying. I have read through old post to try to figure out the issue, but not sure what to think. I have been using a space heater to speed up the drying process...could that be causing the problems? I have hard water, so I soaked one mag pouch in "bottled" water to see if there was a difference, both came out with problem areas. I also re-soaked one in good water, but it dried with the same marks. I have seen a lot of quality defects in the leather (cheap), but mainly discolored bumps not these obvious water marks that become visible when drying. I don't recall this happening before, I think the only thing I have changed is using the heater. Could it be drying too fast? too hot? I try to keep it about 120-130F but I know it has gotten higher at times. Thanks for the help!
  5. Hey guys, I have been lurking and learning for awhile. I have only recently began producing a few items (pistol holster and mag holsters, by necessity) but was inspired to make a game strap for use in the field this season. This was my first time to attach anything with rivets, and first try at tooling! I really got off line as you can see from the pic. Is anyone familiar with producing game straps? Just looking for some ideas of how to make it better. Should I sew a piece under the shoulder part for more friction and padding? what would you use? what could I use to make it softer and more plyable. I used oil dye, followed by eco-flow satin shene, then applied a coat of Obenaufs LP to hopefully help waterproof. Thanks for any help you can provide. I have attached a pic if you have any comments, and don't worry I have thick skin. Jason
