  1. Never replaced these kind of rubber reins, but have used them they don't seem to preform so well in the wet as Equus reins as they go shiny when used a bit, but do seem to be a bit more hard wearing. One thing i have noticed is you have put a double row of stitches on the bit end for the cuffs while on the hand part you have used one row of stitches on the cuffs. Hope this helps JCUK

    Yes should have noticed that too glass or two of wine is the blame for that.

    Bridle and Reins

    Nice work still using the pop stitch i see. This side of the pond Bridle Butts and Bridle Backs will have their bellies trimmed off not really used in the Saddlery industry over here. But have had some cheap Saddle Skirting from Tandy for something i was trying at the time, used the belly for fillers and liners for things it worked okay. The Shoulders can be used for Foal slips and Foal Head Collars and for Everyday Head Collars on younger Horses that don't don't need to be to fancy as long as you have the weight there for strength should be okay its also good for repairs.

  6. I get mine from Abbey England. https://www.abbeyengland.com/three-loop-square-c042 These i are what i use for my better Head Collars https://www.abbeyengland.com/standard-three-loop-square-brass-st3loop There are their standard ones which i mainly use for repairs of lesser quality Head Collars The difference in quality is there to be seen especially over time, but they are not cheap and add that to the shipping your of the pond may make way to expensive, but will say i have used some in different finishes and have been happy with them too and so were my customers. That said the standard collection are okay too but do suspect they are probably the same as most i see from other places which sometimes are cheaper. Hope this helps JCUK
  7. Ask him the name of the person who referred you. Hope this helps JCUK
  8. Did he just show a pic of the Skiving machine or has shown any pics of the other items he is selling, reason i ask if he just showing you the skiving machine pic it could be just a random pic , but if he is showing more pics of what he is selling check that it seems they are in the same workshop or being stored in the same place at least and not just randoms pics of the things he says is selling.

  9. These maybe worth contacting and asking about their tanning process, just read threw their story it may help you i have never had leather from them but know of people who have and they love it. The thing i will say it won't be cheap, i am pretty sure i have seen a supplier your side of the pond. Also maybe contact some tanneries your side of the pond they might have some kind of product suitable for your need. https://www.jfjbaker.co.uk/products-1 The part of the country where they are based is cider country more over scrumpy cider home made stuff where they don't remove the apple seeds there have been cases of people who have lost their sight and there have deaths i believe but that was because of years and years of drinking it and not it moderation i would say. Hope this helps JCUK
  10. No because i pull the slack out through the needle, pull it tight and when i start stitching a new product it just works for me, but will have to say most of my work is usually hand stitched so not a machine expert by any means but i what i do just works. Hope this helps JCUK
  11. Merry Christmas everyone cant mention the weather this side of the pond as real people cant afford there heating bills (####### lying Tories) lets hope the new year brings better times. Cheers everyone JCUK
  12. When i have finished back stitching I just pull the thread level to the logo on the machine and once i have cut the thread make sure i pull it tight in the machine and have never had the problem you are having. Hope this helps JCUK
  13. You could just add the word leather underneath using the same font. Hope this helps JCUK
  14. You might want to take a look at sole leather i know of some companies this side of the pond that will get near 20 oz leather but they won't be cheap so take a look your side of the pond. Hope this helps JCUK
  15. Think this might be what you are looking for, they will give you a more rounded edge rumour has it these are made by former Dixon employees https://www.abbeyengland.com/economy-hollow-edge-shave-fs072 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232937597891?hash=item363c29abc3:g:U2UAAOSwnRZbpopW&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoGdi5FZuHreiLcgcjkaSHdcL%2BXlogU0%2BOtElBAyA2wDVcEj3E2tQs4RjUikod9W3ePE9l7WZ18PuNMaIDoav9%2FuTvivv2KF%2B0o76GExiRsn7qBUH31XM42rf03MFduqgVQjKrodGzqSBNAz2HiZj73we%2BKDCRkmTFX9zOQCoBMLSvZKZIGjdvB%2FRKYW3f3RP74pFoKiiTS5qr92CmyepMyY%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR5yh7Z6XYQ Hope this helps JCUK
