  2. Well, I hid the KMA post, even though I couldn't figure out what got him heated up, and what got deleted. We never REALLY delete anything. Art

    your opinion

    This topic is headed nowhere constructive. Y'all are pissin' mehoff. I'm not giving anyone but me and the other mods the last word. Take this crap to another board, where it might be appreciated or at least tolerated. I respect the off topic nature of this forum, but y'all have each other so riled-up, Johanna is going to have to install a blood pressure plugin before someone throws a rod. I hate to make work for us, but if you are brutally offended by a post, report it to us instead of responding negatively.

    Looking for large brass heart concho

    Well, you certainly made that clear in your original post. Lay part on a piece of grid or graph paper, both sides to be clearer. Now, call OTB and see if they can source what you need. They might not have it, but they can point you in the right direction. These can also be custom made. There are a lot of vendors out there, it might take a few hours on the phone to get a lead. Also, go to your original supplier and ask where they sourced them.
  6. Fact of leather life here. Robert Beard tools sell for more than you paid for them when new. This is on eBay. They seldom come up unless someone dies. Barry King tools can be a little more flexible on price, but they hold their value too.

    Which swivel knife if NEWBIE

    Bite the bullet and buy a Robert Beard or a Henley. If you don't like it, you can put it up on eBay and get more than you paid for it. Both of those brands lean more toward being a "generic" swivel knife while being very adjustable for length. When you get enough experience to know if you want a bigger or smaller knife, like I said above, you can recoup your cost (hell, I'll buy it from you).
  10. Email one of the older folks at Ohio Travel Bag. But a little searching can find it here:
  11. Those machines are very robust. They travel to shows many times a year over 1000 miles each way. If you can afford the needle positioner, get it. It makes doing cartridge loops a bit easier. You can live without it though. Call me if you need more info. Three zero one eight four eight seven eight one zero.

    bag making question!

    Carrie, Make Big full width pockets, actually more of a lining with an open top. If you want more, sew them to that pocket. All the stitching for the liner pocket would be in the seams. Art
