  1. You were able to make stamps using this? What material?
  2. I was hoping a manual clicker press would work for a 8x12 stamp, but now that I own one I'm having a hard time believing it. Is there a general rule of the ton press vs square inch of stamp to get one clean image? If I was to make a few production items with a large stamp (12"x12") what would I need to buy?
  3. So, about 3 years ago I used a diamond chisel on a wallet interior. Someone is very hard on there wallets and the ends ripped. question: is the slotted stronger than the T-pockets? If t-pockets, should I use a circular punch? Am I best off machine stitching?
  4. Please help. I feel like I have been paying to get leather split and they come with a 2-3oz difference. Even if I do not request a split. Say I order a small 4-5sq’ piece of 3/4oz and it comes to me, obviously split, from a 4/6 oz., written 3/6oz on the back. ?? It seems like I can never get the weight of leather I order and it’s costing me money. It happens so much at springfield that I had gotten tired of calling about it. Eventually I will make something out of the weight given. Is there a place where the weight is accurate? Many times I don’t even ask for a split, just order by the sq ft and it comes split and way off. It can really make a big difference with wallets.
  5. Thanks. I thought maybe it was a large flat table press but I think your right.
  6. How do companies make a large embossed print into chrome tanned leather? Is there a machine large enough to print half sides? I’m assuming it needs heat and a fan to suck away the caustic air.
  7. Yes, but as stated I have not seen a mention of the type of leather they have been used on. Does it make a difference? I don’t want someone paying a couple hundred for a purse and have it flake off.
  8. I’ve looked into different edge kotes and have seen a wide usage. I have not seen anything discussing Chrome tanned leather. Is there an edging paint,paste, kote, etc... that is flexible enough to use on a chrome tanned purse? One that wont crack? I want to make a few purses with this sophiano (spelling?) leather I purchased and being chrome tanned, I don’t believe it will barnish.
  9. It was really just an example but it would bring a unique look to projects.
  10. How strong is artificial sinew? Is it dependible enough to use for hand stitched wallets? Is it strong enough for regular thread substitution or does it fray too much? Is friction an issue?
  11. Thank you. Most embossing rollers fit them? Thank you. Does bunkhouse rollers fit these?
  12. Has anyone used one of these? Just want to be sure they work good.
