  1. I googled small stainless steel nails. These might work for you. https://www.micromark.com/Miniature-Nails-Package-of-100_2?gclid=Cj0KCQjw-b7qBRDPARIsADVbUbX_128jGTpjlNWfoOOtIaEhPfRPZr_zHbKfgcAHKvC3P33S7LzHFykaApvhEALw_wcB Good luck, Sandy
  2. If Akube doesn't take it I will. Email me at sandyflorida1@gmail.com
  3. Thank you so much! I have been trying to find this book. Can't wait to go through it. Thanks again! Sandy
  4. I thought i would Thank You for the PDF. I try to collect all kinds of patterns. Sandy
  5. You could try Weaver Leather. I know they have some reenactment conchos. They may be a good place to try.
  6. I just got a great swivel knife made to fit my hands. Great swivel action! He also makes beautiful mauls. Contact Ed LaBarre. polarb1717@aol.com Good luck, Sandy
  7. You did a great job on the draw down! You will get years of good use out of that one. They can be pricey when you buy one. I wish you much success. Sandy
  8. Hi Morris One place you could try is your local Tandy Leather Company. I know they have alot of different patterns for alot of things. Not sure if they have what you want but it would be a good place to start. What you are looking for are called Botas. http://www.wrtcleather.com/Botas/index-gallery.html Here are some pictures of what i think you want. Good luck! Sandy
  9. Yes...Thankyou for all your hard work and time in coming up with these great patterns!!!!
  10. You need to read all you can on saddle construction. There is a great deal of information on this site on that subject. There are many books and DVDs that can help you. None of them are ever complete. There are alot of variations to do everything on a saddle. Buy the best leather and saddle tree you can afford. Start by doing your research and read! Good luck! Sandy
  11. Chuck..if you would post some of your saddles so we can see his work. I don't think I have seen any of them. Thanks, Sandy
  12. I really like Proleptic's Concho turners. They have 2 sizes and make life so much easier! A good investment. Sandy
  13. That would be a great idea for every state to have the history of all the great Saddlemakers. I would definitely hold on to that saddle...a great piece of history. Sandy
  14. I am in Florida. You could contact this group http://coloradosaddlemakers.org/ I am sure someone there could put you in touch with a reputable saddle maker. Building your own saddle is extremely rewarding. Make sure you put alot of thought into what kind of saddle you want. What you are going to use it for and especially the kind that will fit both you and your horse. These are things your saddle maker will help you with. Good luck to you and enjoy your new experience!
