  1. Good idea. They seemed like an honest bunch the last time I talked to them.
  2. Does anybody know if there is metallic leather of good quality? The last experience the metallic seemed to have a type of rub off. Tandy is introducing some from Italy, but unsure of its quality.
  3. I had seen those acrylic plates before, just wasn’t certain on how well they worked. I guess nothing will beat tooling, but they seem to not be very detailed.
  4. Has anyone turned a rolling press for metal into a belt roller? It seems that they would give more pressure and are a lot cheaper than a press specifically for belts. There are a few patterns I want to continue to use and add some tooled designs too manually.
  5. And possible heat too right? I know you’r bot supposed to pyro chrome tanned, but wondering if some of these manufacturers are set up for it.
  6. High impact casting epoxy? That sounds like what I am looking for. I just want to be clear though, is this something you poor over the images you want, remove the images and it’s solidified enough for a good amount of pressure for a plate? Assuming a hand clicker press Would work, if not too big.
  7. Been looking for 3M .25 but can’t find it on their site.??
  8. Mostly for ribbon taping on wallets and rolled edges on bags. All will be stitched over, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want something super strong and as permanent at tape film will get.
  9. Does anybody know what the strongest double-sided tape is for leather? That Tandy stuff sucks and want it in bulk.
  10. Are you using leather needles with a chisel point or rounded ones? I use rounded on most things, as I mostly stitch wallets.
  11. So what do people do? You have to back stitch right?
  12. Does backstitching with a leather needle cut the thread?

    Splitter

    The hardest time I am having is that I been using Herman Oaks Drum dyed brown that has a gloss to it. I been asking them to split it to 2-3oz but I usually end up with a few square feet of 4 oz, which is far too thick for wallet insides. I find little projects here and there to use the 4 oz but it’s not easy when the size of the piece is inconsistent. I am not a fan of the glazed pig skin, as it makes my wallets look cheap. What type of 2oz vegetable tanned leather are people using for the insides? It seems most are using kid skin or some other plastic like stuff.
