    Line 24 Snap Setting

    Before I would buy anything, I would would drill a hole the size of the snap post in a 1/8" thick wood and sand it down on a belt in sander. Than use your press. Seabee I

    Traveling leatherworker tools

    Chrisash, I could tow a trailer, because my shop is a 20' TT converted for leatherwork, but I would have to leave the car at home. Sheillajeanne, You have given me some great ideas, cutting belt blanks, holster, etc. I didn't think about. Thank you for responding, Howard
  7. Hi all, I'am going to do some RV traveling again, but this time I want to do some leather projects like holster, belts, etc. You can only do so much sightseeing and fishing. I have been trying put together a small toolbox So, what hand tools want to carry, All my tooling stamps are in a their own toolbox, also, I built a portable stitching pony. Any suggests would help. Thanks, Howard
  8. oldnslow, Thanks for you insight and knowledge. I also use Kydex between the straps. My project turned out nice and my friend was happy. When a customer is happy, I'm happy. Have a great day. Seabee
  9. Good day all, A little update, I did glue a liner on after sanding on a belt sander and this morning I trim the liner by under cutting it to round over the edge a little. I than lightly sanded, burnished, and dyed the edge. I going to hand stitch the belt tomorrow. Thanks you all for helping on this Seabee P. S. Dwight, Your S&W Shield pattern worked great. I used the holster least week to renew my permit. Thank you for sharing Seabee
  10. Bigfoote, Thanks for responding. I plan on trying to a add the liner just to see what happens and to gain some knowledge. Its a regular 8/9 oz. belt I made it for a friend. If I knew he was going hang a full size size 1911 on it, I would have made him a gun belt. Ether way he'll have a good gun belt Thanks Again, Seabee
  11. Good day, Can a liner be added to a finished belt? I think I would have to remove the finish glue and stitching on the liner.

    Arbor Press modifications for snaps/stamps

    Hey all, I use Barry King hand snap setter, and Tandy rivet setter. I can't justify buying a press. I use a book press (from a yard sale for $5) for letter stamps. Seabee

    I could not find double shoulder on their website. Do they only sale sides and bends? I should just call them in the morning. Thanks Howard

    How do I cut a straight belt border?

    Morning, I clamp a 5' 1x4, face down to my bench. That makes a fence for the belt to rest against so it doesn't move around. And, I go slow when cutting the border. Hope this helps, Seabee
