  3. Does anyone know where I can get a template that will allow me to draw the sine wave pattern the you see on so many gun belts? I would like to try it on a belt or two but there is no way I'm gonna free hand it..... Thanks for the help
  4. How do you guys keep natural leather clean while molding, tooling, burnshing etc? It seems that no matter what I try, I get sweat stains or stains from saddle soap or wax on my belts and holsters wich forces me to dye everything black to cover up te blemishes. How do you make a natural or Russett holster without any stains on it.....should I stain and seal the leather first and if so how am I going to case the leather before molding it.....everything I know about leatherwork I have learned from this forum and I wish to thank everyone for thier help.... Thank You Don
  5. A friend has asked me to make him a rifle scabbard that he is going to carry on his saddle and I dont know what weight leather to use...I have some 6-7 oz veg tan but that seems too light......thanks for any help you can give
  6. that couldnt be more perfect,,,,,,thank you very much!!!
  7. Can someone give me the measurement of a KBar knife handle where the retention strap would go? A friend of mine asked me if I could replace the missing retention strap on his old leather K-Bar knife sheath. The problem is that he sent me the sheath without the knife and he lives out of state. I asked him if he could measure the handle for me and he was way too vague for me to trust his estimate....any help would be greatly appreciated....
  8. Thanks for the Info!!!.....I'll give them a call tomorrow.....
