  1. So, about a week ago I posted my wishes for a Tippmann Boss. I need to supplement my Social Security and I have decided to do that with something that I have a very deep passion for. Oh, yeah, that's leather workin'. I have nerve damage in my shoulder, arm, and hand. that is agrivated by the repetitive action of pulling on the handle of the Boss. It looks like I'm going to have to wait for the ever elusive low priced electric leather machine. I know what I would like to have, but I have champaign taste on a beer budget. Any help will be sincerely appreciated.

  2. I knew that I was going to regret it one day. Yup, I sold my Boss about twelve years ago. It was loaded. I loved that thing, but I was so busy in my day job that it wasn't being used very often. Now I'm trying to retire, but I don't have any income except for Social Security. I would like to supplement my income by making holsters, tack, and knife sheeths. I need your help in locating a reasonably priced Boss. (remember that I am on Social Security) Thank you so much for your assisstance.
