    Long post hardware for 10oz

    The buckle guy is on eBay are use eBay all the time. Are use Chicago rivet sometimes and copper rivets with the washer behind the post and then clip it to length and then mash the rivet butt with ball peen hammer. If you want to smoother fastener the Chicago Rivets work well Sometimes you need a removable Loctite on the threads

    I used scrap leather to make a leather folder so to speak to act as a carrie case for my 14"x 14" pcs. granite tooling pad I also put a 1/4" thick heavy rubber mat adhered to the bottom of the granite. Those holes are for finger carry purposes and I used heavy leather lace to tie the backside of the folder in place. Once I place the folder on a wooden TV tray or table top I untie the lace and open it up.

    Belts for Sept - Oct 2011

    Work Belts
  4. I worked on five belts Sat. I trimmed and put the thread groove, and dyed the leather. Today I added the double stitch thread along the edge. I had a brother ask me one time its all about making money on your leather work. I said sometimes its about doing good to others and helping those in time of need. Its not about the almighty dollar, I said your missing the point.

      I agree - sometimes it's better tp make an honest penny rather than a dollar with bad feelings. I always feel better and happier when helping others.

    Back to the oil leaking down the foot post, I also have to take the thread out of the thread pot to prevent the oil from wicking down thread. This happened to me on day i had a puddle of silicone oil on the bed. I use 100% silicone copier oil for my thread lube.

    Screws For Swing-A-Way Edge Guide

    The type of edge guide i'm looking for attaches to the head near the needle, ball bearing roller and has a spring that keeps it positioned up out of the way or down depending on use.
