  1. Excellent shading/tones...great work!
  2. Don't forget used tools. I have made some excellent purchases from folks on this site. I also check out flea markets and antique stores. ASK! Surprising what people have and don't want. One of my best all time tool purchases was at an auction years ago, three boxes of tools, leather and books. Some of my most prized, I got for $70.00!! No one at the auction (besides me) knew what those boxes were (or cared)....when the time came for bidding, I asked if all three boxes could be auctioned for "one money". Auctioneer says "sure". I said $70.00....no one else says anything! I went home and inventoried. Retail pricing (back then) added up to $800.00. I have several stories like this. I have told my hot wife and my adult kids: when I pass, Please sell these tools to someone that appreciates and will use them. PLEASE don't have a yard sale! Good luck!! (and yes, I have more tools than I use, and some I may never use. For me, the hunt is so much fun) Chuck Dorset, Weaver Leather supply has some good videos. Make Leather Supply (he uses very few tools for his projects) http://makesupply-leather.com/
  3. Nice! "Skin that smoke wagon...... see what happens!"
  4. Yeah, I can identify! I just finished (5) guitar straps...one of them sucks- that one will be mine. Same for a small biker wallet last week....my 'brother by another mother' gets the "good" one. Identical, with the wonky stitch line is mine.....I don't pitch the not quite right stuff...I keep it, use it or hang it on the wall, or throw it in a drawer. Reminds me to slow down, think things through. Yours looks great. Most people don't "see" the mistakes we know we made!
  5. I have a set of these. Work great on small projects. (I don't hand sew often either) As mentioned above- not recommended for thicker projects.
  6. Always very cool stuff- love your style and execution.
  7. looks great! Love shop pics!
  8. Weaver sells these for $21.50 per size/set. But hey, if AS brand is what you want!.......
  9. Little tiny screw...created a big problem. Bought this 3200 from you Bob...6 years ago? Has worked flawlessly. (Well, till now haha!) Thanks!
  10. Thanks to this board and contributors. Long story, short version. I spent way too long trying to fix my machine thread jam. Spent quite a bit of time reading this forum today. Cant say which post or which person but they mentioned that "the little screw on the shuttle hook assembly can come loose over time". Well, TA DA! That was it...the screw had loosened just enough to be just a hair above the surface. Which in turn snagged the thread and jammed the machine. I won't admit publicly how much time I spent trying to figure this out... Thanks to this forum and contributors! David (Pic taken after the screw was tightened back down)
  11. I so missed Alexander's CB 3200 instructional videos! SO HEY! Found a few of them still exist on the Hi Tex site. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWqPhGzuAM31eIKemfCtjaw
  12. I LOVE posts like this: problem, video, trouble shooting/opinions, resolution! I go here first, spend a maddening amount of time researching, reading. Ponder, tinker (aka cuss), fix it or don't, possibly make it worse. Call professionals as a last resort. (After years of getting lost, I actually do ask for directions if necessary travelling. Just sayin'.) Best, David
