  2. Hi all I would like some help on which brand of eyelet to use on sheaths that require them. I work with thickness's ranging from 7/64 which is easy to find eyelets for...to 5/16 or 3/8 thickness which is more difficult though. Whatever I get setup with I would like a hand press to set them with so they are nice and neat. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hey Brian I did speak with Marish the other day also actually. Japanese hardware sounds great! I'm send you a pm! Thanks for the Ohio Travel Bag link, I had forgotten about them actually - they have a few I have enquired about, so shall see what I hear back.
  4. Thanks Brian Have you dealt with these guys before? I would really like to know I'm getting the best I can, its hard when I can't find anything else lol Eliza at The Buckle Guy confirmed they are made in Switzerland, hopefully that speaks to their quality...
  5. Thanks Rocky Spoke to Russell at Leffler today - nice guy. Its not something they stock any longer. I will talk to MacLace, they have been going Chinese for a while now though so I'm not sure what luck I will have there. It seems that the brand Amiet is the only one worth looking at...so I'll order some from the buckle guy and check them out - not sure if they are indeed Swiss made or Chinese.
  6. Hey Rocky I will call them today and ask them, I am a business yes so thats no trouble. Thank you so much for your offer to help, thats really nice of you. I'm in Brisbane, where are you located? I will let you know how I get on =-)
  7. Hey Rocky I looked at their website and couldn't find anything (not a great site) and then ordered their catalogue to peruse. Have you got them from Leffler before?
  8. I am searching for well made folio locks, reasonably open to different styles in brass preferably. I have found a few here and there but they do not look of good quality. The ones at http://abbeyengland.com/ appear to be alright, but they have no stock. Example of the locks I'm thinking of are seen on this website: http://www.classicluggage.com/brief_cases_and_portfolios.htm Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  9. G'day I picked up some crust ostrich leg leather on a whim with an order - when it turned up I looked at it and scratched my head... What can I do with this stuff? How should I finish it somehow before using it? Thanks in advance!

    Go on a holiday to the USA mate, reasonable prices are just not available here. A sad but true reality.

    Work bench

    Love the magnet idea! I need to revamp my workshop, just trying to get the time! I have a 3m x 1.5 cutting bench with 1 piece of HDPE atop of it - picked up 2 tables 1.5m sq for $150 ea at a seconds store and the HDPE was a little pricey but absolutely worth it - a dream to cut on. I was thinking of making a little table with wheels - like some people have in their kitchen, so I could have my most used tools on it and move it around my workshop... Keep the pics coming - fantastic to see what other people are using! Cheers Josh
