  1. I've used Douglas blades for a long time & none of the others compare. And yes they come ready to use sharp & polished properly.

    SOLD Please remove.
  3. I use a bunch of their extra heavy harness & love it. Sometimes thickness can be a little inconsistent however that's been true of others harness also but it is quality leather. Their veg tan has always been good quality IMO. And yes I agree with Weaver Leather Supply the latigo is true latigo.

    I'm looking at a bigger sewing machine that will be more suited for my work. Anyone needing a machine for upholstery, garment weight leather, web gear, & will sewup to 3/8''+, this is a perfect sewing machine. I have bunches of new needles from size 18-26, spare parts, NOS Singer Roller Foot, Welt Feet, thread stand, bobbin winder, new extra hook & bobbin case, 100+ bobbins & a couple spools of thread.Machine is in tip top shape & ready for a lifetime of sewing projects. New Consew Servo motor, nice commercial stand.I did a bunch or research when I bought this commercial machine several years ago. There are NOS parts galore for this machine available many places. The Chinese machines are clones of Singers big walking foot machine were made in Japan & Great Britain back when the steel used was top quality not pot metal or nylon like the machines today.These machines were designed for factory use & to run non stop. A small business will never wear this machine out.Also the Old Juki machines have a button on the bed that mechanically retimes this machine if it ever gets knocked out of time. This means no technicians $150 service call like with other machines. I have a couple of repro manuals & a complete parts manual that will go with the package.If anyone is interested bring what you need to sew & try it out to see if it will serve your purpose.I guarantee this machine is in tiptop shape.This machine is set up to sew leather or upholstery. Not gonna ship but you could arrange you on shipping. $1000 firm & I can take CC's or PayPal or other payments. Located in Monroe NC
  5. I loved the results of the Wyo Slik but the raw sewage smell was a little too much. It's not bad when 1st opened. But once you have it for a month or 2 it's terrible.
  6. Ed if you see this message I'm in need of a few of your burnishers. Curt 7o4-2.4.2.-15o7
  7. I wanted a set of the Bearman burnishers but they don't have a way to purchase on their website & don't answer email So I guess the ones on ebay will have to do. Curt
  8. I use Douglas from Sheridan Leather. The quality is unsurpassed.
  9. I have a Nakajima TDU-N62 that I would part with. I kept this machine as a backup just in case. This is a great walking foot machine that has never given me a problem. The only reason I don't use it any more is I needed a machine with 1/2 inch lift or more. I know of no problem with it. My sewing machine tech said it looked as if it had very low hours. I know this to true as it was owned by a friend who used it about a year & then it just sat in his shop. I have the machine head only. Standard tables can be had reasonable. Buyer to pay actual shipping. I have it packed in a commercial sewing machine shipping box. This means the machine will arrive at your location in good condition. E-mail me @ trunkmaker@gmail.com if you're interested.
  10. I have a 45k25 that I bought & restored several years ago. It sews like a new machine. I put a servo on it & have 2 extra hook assemblies. It has a new shuttle & hook in the machine, 1 new extra, & a used extra. This would be a great machine for someone that would use it, I just don't have a need for it. I wondered if there is any interest here & what is it worth. I'm thinking about putting it on Ebay. Curt

  14. Andy, My son is a chef in Atlanta & I have made a few rolls for him & friends. I'll try to round up some pics. Curt
  15. How are you going to stitch leather & use a proper coad on your thread?

    Nakajima Tdu-N62

    I have a Nakajima TDU-N62 that I would part with. I kept this machine as a backup just in case. This is a great walking foot machine that has never given me a problem sewing 1/4 inch stuff. I have sewn a little 3/8 inch also. The only reason I don't use it any more is I needed a machine with 1/2 inch lift or more. I know of no problem with it. My sewing machine tech said it looked as if it had very low hours. I know this to be true as it was owned by a friend who used it about a year & then it just sat in his shop. I have the machine head only. Buyer to pay actual shipping. I have it packed in a commercial sewing machine shipping box. This means the machine will arrive at your location in good condition. I want $400 for the head only. I have a few needles & bobbins I'll throw in. Buyer will pay actual shipping it is packed & ready to go. I can e-mail pics as I'm very limited in computer skills & can't upload.
  17. I buy all mine from American Leather Direct. They have US hides tanned in Mexico. Have bought from them for many years. Try www.aleatherd.com ask for Bo. Great quality & priced right. These folks will treat you right. Last time I contacted Weaver they only sell wholesale if you do $10,000. 00 per year. I bought from them years ago but will not again.
  18. Tandy has a screw back stud that is flatter & smaller than a Sam Browne or at least they did.
  19. This is the first leather work I did several years ago. It is a wrought iron chair frame with brass knobs & leather sling seats & arms. The stitch designs are all hand done with coad & linen thread. The stitch designs I still use on many of my ottomans & other pieces. This is the only pic I can find. So a word of warning always document your work. Over the years I allowed way too many pieces go out the door without pics. I now regret that. Also don't forget a makers mark of some sort. The spoons are some of my early forge work.
  20. These were custom made for a 110 ft yacht named Whitewater. Fake zebra tops with chapleather sides & trim & brass nail & tack embellishment. The center button was made by me from tiger maple with poured pewter W for the yachts name & also the owners last name.
  21. I have a very nice stitching horse for sale. It is made from oak. This is an antique that is in like new condition. The clamp is quarter sawn oak with no sewing marks at all. I've never seen an old one in this shape. It appears to be left handed & I'm told that could be easily changed. I cleaned & applied numerous coats of tung oil to it. I'd like 350.00 for it & I will box & pack it well & charge only what actual shipping will be. Make offers & I might even be willing to trade for quality leather tools.
