  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.
  13. Do you have experience with a bunkhouse machine? I wonder how they compare to the cowboy that seems like all the other belt rollers on eBay. or even if they fit the same rollers.
  14. Oh, sorry. Thought you replied to mine. Makes sense now. Lol
  15. A little confused here. I mean, the whole “stop discussing and start doing” thing. Is this not a forum? Did someone not say they are building one and curious about the market months ago? I mean, I just don’t really know how to take your reply. Was it you that said that, or just you answering my question to him? If you have one for sale, I would like to know the price and what you have. Being on a public forum, I’m assuming everyones not getting a “buddy” price, yet I am also assuming a “buddy” price wouldn’t be advertised.
  16. I’m interested. Did you make one yet?
  17. What’s your status on belt rolling machines? Been thinking of getting one
  18. Good idea. They seemed like an honest bunch the last time I talked to them.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
