  1. Have you done a test pattern on some scrap? I am assuming you are using LightBurn software, if not please do yourself a favor and get it. There are test patterns to run along with directions for doing "Ramp Tests". Correct settings of your laser for the material, air assist if you are engraving or cutting with ample exhaust. When I engrave or cut a new type of product I run exhaustive tests at different speeds and power keeping a written note of those settings until I get what I want. Time consuming I agree, necessary, you bet! Begin with low power and speed settings adjusting one or the other to see any change. Visit the Lightburn Forum at https://lightburnsoftware.com Ferg

    Steel Rule Die Bender

    Yes, the bender and dies are still available. I am unable to respond via telephone due to hearing problems. E-mail is a must for me. I am in Southwest Ohio 45432. Please let me know if you wish to visit to see and possibly buy the items. Ferg
  3. I used to do sublimation which I accomplished on white dear leather. I have posted a photo of same before. Also used a Laser Printer Mono color to make whatever image/text I wanted. You can print on the better quality of laser copy paper lay it on your leather or whatever you wish to use. With a household iron you can actually transfer the image to the substrate. No messing with all the other "stuff." Ferg

  8. Probably 10 or 12 years ago I unearthed a piece of Veg Tan at least forty years old which meant it was bought from Tandy. I found a sketch in one of my art books that I decided to carve into that piece of leather. It wasn't dried out, stiff, or hard. I tempered it and carved this design. Stored under two other leather pieces I done about the same time. It has never been stored or displayed in daylight. Some day I will probably frame it and give it to my youngest daughter. Ferg
  9. I wouldn't take the old ones without checking them over for possible mold or mildew. But Heck Yeah I would take them. Vintage sales! LOL Ferg
  10. I am sorry, I posted the wrong selling price on this item. It should be $250 including shipping to continental USA. No Alaska shipping. They are Horse Shoe Brand. Ferg

  12. I am presenting a set of five edge rounding tools numbering No1 through No5, made of stainless steel with hardwood handles. I don't remember who the manufacturer was I do know how much I paid for them.Emblem on them H S which may not mean a thing. Have never been used. Asking $250 plus shipping. Ferg
  13. I have replied to this conversation personally. Anyone else need info on the items I am in the process of cataloging and photographing the items I wish to sell. I began my leather crafting when around nineteen years old while in the Navy. I am five months from being eighty nine years old/young. Believe me when I tell you with arthritis in both feet and ankles, spine, hands and fingers plus being deaf, life is a little fragile and totally exasperating. I would like to believe that working since I was eight years old and enjoying most every minute of it I can influence others with drive. Ferg
  14. Due to escalating Arthritis and vision problems I am offering my Stamp set equaling 163 pieces. I bought a lot of these 60 to 75 years ago when Tandy's tools were made of good metal and chrome. There are several I bought from individuals who made stamps as a lifetime tool. I am asking for anyone possibly interested in these before I spend the time to catalog and photograph each one and price them either individually or as a complete set. My request may be a little unorthodox but please bear with me. I have large spools of sewing machine thread plus various and other tools for normal leather work as well as shoemaking. Also several boxes of hardware such as zippers, magnetic pieces etc. I am having a hard time letting go of the leather equipment and accessories. Any of you that have had the opportunity to spend a large part of your life with this hobby/business know what I am feeling. Ferg

    A wee wallet

    If I may make one suggestion. Make an open border around the edge of your product enclosing the stitching then do your basket weave or other inside the bordered area. Ferg
