  1. I think Weaver leather offers a sharpening service.
  2. Beautiful work! I love the color combination. Your tooling is very nice.
  3. Great work! Is the back side of the belt lined? Is so, it does not look like you stitched around the edge. Any reason? Thanks, Tom
  4. I have used Stohlman's table for these lots of times and like not having to always be figuring out or come up with the right numbers. Everything is subjective, but using these tables for me keeps it simple and uncomplicated. I also like the Stohlman style of fender.
  5. Thanks, Josh, for the reply and explanation. Makes sense and is very simple. I have two rigs to do and was wondering what your process was. Thank you again! Tom
  6. Awesome work as usual Josh! Did you put a welt in the holster? Also, how did you measure for fit? Did you measure buckle end to center hole while straight or after you cured the belt strap? Tom
  7. I believe Weaver Leather manufactures their own clicker press (as well as all their Master Tools) and is made right in Ohio.
  8. Thank you, yes, I see it now. I use kangaroo for my wallet interiors and have been very satisfied. It is strong and thin and makes a great wallet.
  9. The old CS Osborne tools were very well made. Their stuff now is basically junk. No attention to quality or craftsmanship. It is sad, really. If you want quality punches and tools at a fair price, check out Weaver Leather Supply. I have many of their tools and for the money they really are well made and sharp.
  10. Thanks Dwight. I never thought to do that. Great Idea. I will give it a try. Tom
  11. Any one know the dimensions for something like this? Length of straps etc.?
  12. Looks great! I'd say they turned out very well. I always struggle with product pics.
  13. That is plenty thick enough. Plus, you need to be able to get the concho screws thru the leather.
  14. I usually use 7/8 for the top layer and then line the back with a 2-3 oz liner. Then bend it and kind of pre-shape it. It will conform to the horses nose over time.
