  1. Thanks. That is a El Creek Buckle set I bought from Cavenders 20 yrs ago. Sometimes I use Ebay to buy buckles for belts I'm making. There is a Judge Leo Smith on Ebay that will make anything you want. He is here in Texas.
  2. Thanks everybody for the kind comments. Yes sir Ross there is a magnetic strip all the way across. Saves space.
  3. Thanks everybody. I really needed some lace up boots. My ankle just rolls completely over on any kind of sloped terrain with slip on boots. I'm ready to make another pair and have them decorated with my signature logo.
  4. Thanks Chuck and Tom There's a piece of 3/4 oz veg tan just the width of the swell with the edges beveled glued on the back first, then the front laid on top. I make everything big and then cut it to size after it's glued together. I have the tooling between the billets with a good swell as well. It's a 21 needle with 207 thread and 135 in the bottom. . I was playing with the stitch length and thought I had it back at 8 spi, it's really closer to 9spi. I have a Class 26 now, I had a class 4 but was to big, so I traded it for this class 26. I was gonna modify a needle plate and feeddog on the class 4 myself. Now you can buy it already done. The class 26 does 95% of what I do and the Class 4 was good for about 5%. Wish I had it back now.
  5. Needed a belt to wear when going out instead of my work belt.
  6. Thanks for the comments. Here's a couple of better pictures. The boots are some Bison leather. The dye on the belt is a 50/50 mix of light brown and chocalate Feibing's diluted 50/50 and sprayed.
  7. Just curious if anybody puts anything in their belts to keep them from bending in the middle of the back.
  8. Is the T in their backwards sheilajeanne? Isn't it the wrong kind of T fitting? Unbelievable
  9. It was for a door panel in a Old International Travel All. I had to tool another one, so that one is just a conversation piece. I have no use for it. I just let sit around to remind me to be careful.
  10. It’s just trash now. Oh well live and learn. I’m a lot more careful now.
  11. It Happens. Here's a good one. I put the dye in a very small round plastic container. Very hard to turn over. Barely a cap full of dye. Then I put a piece of plastic (trash bag) with a hand size hole cut in for the area I'm working on that covers the rest of the project. Still managed to pull this off. One of those ID 10 T errrerrs.
  12. Bad ass is red neck for gorgeous, beautiful, wowser, and anything everybody else said. Maybe some of the best tooling I've ever seen.
  13. That tooling is bad ass!!!! Makes me want to make something to see if I can improve mine to that level.
