  1. Old post, new listing on a vintage ironwood smasher just posted https://leatherworker.net/forum/topic/106067-saddle-fitter-smasher-vintage/?tab=comments#comment-705882
  2. For Sale. Testing the waters, still haven’t found a fair price comparison. Saddle, fitters, smasher, vintage Ironwood tool very unique. Most of them these days are made out of other materials. Located in Western North Carolina. HEAVY : this isn’t some door knob light weight job several pictures available

  4. This is probably the best draw gauge your going to find anywhere. Excellent working condition, very, very good cosmetically. C.S. Osborne Latte Draw Gauge. I your not familiar with "Latte", it means you can twiste the handle to move the gauge location without a screw driver. Beautiful tool that people were drawn to when they came in my shop. RARE?? YES $150.00 pluse $20.00 shipping Pay Pal or being a business I can take credit cards.
  5. I'm not sure what you mean by fresh water alligator but that's Camian. I know because that is what my wallet is made of and I have an American Alligator tail piece that just came in.
  6. Thought I'd throw an update to all that have been great with their advice. Been in business since February and it has taken off more than I had expected. First month 80% sales off the sales then it has turned mainly custom orders including repairs to expensive furniture that require leather only (forget the upholstery stuff) Social media has worked well. With Instagram getting most of the business. I've been featured in a local magazine http://oakcityhustle.com/clark-aflague-the-leather-man/ Of course they had to call it the leather man...... There's a renaissance period going on with people looking toward artisans and not stuff from across the waters that set borders.
  7. All my work in my shop/store has been making the item either custom or to put on the shelf. So I've been approached with a person looking for a quote on Veg Tan pieces that would cost me precut from one of the leather sources at $200.00. The only thing I have to do is put 6 holes in each (40) and use there stamp one time on each one. I could just simply double the cost and add $60.00 labor But I want to be inline and fair. Any thoughts Thanks I've been doing leather for decades but a brick and mortar store only since Feb this year
  8. I've been pretty good about identifying different leathers but I'm not sure about this one. Any idea's, Hippo? Www.cimarronleatherraleigh.com
  9. Thanks to everyone. Opening First week of February.
  10. I can do some hard projects but cell phone cases, well its always been hard to please the customer. But yours would do the trick.
  11. very nice idea, I guess I'll steal it thanks. Copying is the best compliment.
  12. lots of great informationof course right now I'm really busy trying to figure it all out but I wanted to let all of you know that I am taking your advice and running with it the best I can I do appreciate everyone ideas
