    New radio strap

    Very nice work! Where did you get the thread? I have a customer who wants glow in dark thread and I can’t find anything bigger than Tex 40.

    FACE MASKS 101

    Hats off to you Ferg. I wish more people would take this serious. I just finished 10 mask this morning bringing my total up to 60. I have given away every one I have made and I have not received any help buying material. Wearing a mask protects everyone from you as well as protecting you from everyone. I personally think it is selfish for people not wear one. It is the least they can do to help heal our country. Ferg I don’t think I will ever catch up to how many you have made and I would like to say THANK YOU for your hard work!

    Baseball glove

    That is very sad news. If anyone needs a glove repaired, I do them. I have been doing glove repairs and relacing for about 7-8 years.

    First Attempt at Bootmaking

    Thanks Smartee and kiwican. The leather is just scrap I had laying around the shop. It is 2-3 oz. upholstery leather. The lining is glazed pig and the heel counter is 8-9 oz. tooling leather.

    First Attempt at Bootmaking

    More pictures. I had to make new vamps because I messed one up. I didn’t have enough of the brown leather so I had to go with a different color. Making boots is way harder than I expected. First picture is the lining sewn to the upper panel. Second picture is the boot turned right side out. The third picture is the boot sitting on a last. Not sure why the pictures are sideways.
  11. Here are a few pictures of my boot pieces. Hopefully I can finish them soon. I need to sew the tops together and then see the uppers to the tops once they dry on the crimp boards. There are a lot of steps and time that go into making a pair of boots.

I will ship but only after payment has cleared and buyer is responsible for arranging shipping. I can pallet the machine and load on a truck.
