  1. Just a head up I have quite a few used DVDs for sale for various types of leather working. Including holster making, knife sheath making, bags, leather carving etc. I feel like not too many people navigate down into the for sale area of periodicals on this forum so I though a re-post up here might help! They are all priced to sell quickly. The auction ends 11/15/22 in the evening. For links to all the DVDs for sale check out my post: For a link to all of the Back issues of Leathercrafters and Saddlers Journal 2002-2012 find it here:

  5. Hi, Anyone know what happened to proedgeburnishers.com ? I feel like I checked their site a few months ago and it was up and running, looks like things are not working anymore. I was hoping to get a few dremel burnishers from them, hope everything is ok!
  6. Interesting idea - it may not fit as good as a replica, but as long as the customer knows the difference I guess that would work.
  7. Oh great - you can private message me the photos of it and we can work out a sale. Thank you again!
  8. Hi Todd, Send over a photo or two of it and a measurement if you can. I can pass it along to the customer and have them help make the choice. Thanks!
  9. Hello, I have a customer looking to get a holster made for his Ruger sr1911 with a rail on the bottom. His words - it's a full size 1911 not the commander. I am not having much luck finding the Ruger model sr1911 on Knifekits.com or Bluegunstore.com and am wondering what another holster maker in this situation would do? I am not very familiar with the differences in manufacturers of the 1911 so I don't really know if a Springfield version would do or not. Or maybe there is a better option. Here's what customer support found for me at knifekits so far that looks similar: https://www.knifekits.com/vcom/bluegun-holster-molding-prop-for-springfield-operator-1911-5in-p-5204.html Thanks!
  10. Depending on how aged you need it to look, I found one method to work quite well if you want that really old worn out look. Boil a pot of water and pour it over the leather you need aged. Careful where you pour though! It's unorthodox I know - but it'll shrivel and crack the edges a bit for a much more aged look. I have also dipped leather in boiling water, but that is a bit extreme and basically destroys the leather with cracking.
  11. What's the difference then in how you make the Flat Back - flat backed so to speak? I had just made myself a 50/50 holster (for a dog leash not a gun just yet). And I immediately noticed the discomfort of it as the bulge pushes into your back. My next step was to figure out how to make a Flat Back, and go figure ... this thread popped up for exactly that. Any advice is much appreciated.
  12. Ah - nice, ok so it is more about the placement. Thanks for the tip!
  13. Hey - just curious where you got the checkered background tool and if you had to modify the edges to blend better?
