  1. I always got mine from Weaver. Saw no problem with them.
  2. Tandy has SS and Brass plain conchos of different sizes. Weaver does to,
  3. Here is a quick list of what I have to deal with, 2 flatbeds sewing machines, 1 singer foot paddle patcher, 1 landis 6 wheel finisher, 1 landis #12 boot stitcher, 1 Boogle and greenwell 15 ton hydraulic clicker, 1 370 Adler sewing machine, 2 stamping tables, 2 work benches, a 4 foot and a 8 foot, 1 cutting table, 4' x 8', 2 saddles stands 1 a draw down. All the tools and equipment needed for a saddle and boot shop. 50 years of patterns and books for, saddles, boots, bags, belts, chaps, purses, and holsters. A 5 in one and a 12 inch W. H. Horn leather splinter. Many more items I can't list from memory.
  4. hmmm Wonder if that is one that I covered for Lewis Saddle Tree. What is the date on the bottom if you don't mind me asking? Dallas Tieking (Owner) Lewis Saddle Shop
  5. I have retired and closed my shop (Lewis Saddle Shop) I need some advice on the best way to sell everything. Should I sell the shop as a package or piece it out? And how do I figure out what everything is worth? Thank you for any thoughts on the matter. Dallas Tieking (Owner) Lewis Saddle Shop Hereford Tx

  7. In 8 months I will be retiring and closing my shop. Any thoughts about how to sell a saddle shop. How do you figure out a price to sell. Do you have to sell the Company name with the shop. My wife doesn't like the thought of someone using her father's name that isn't in the family. I also have a website (www.lewissaddleshop.com) for the last 20 years. I have heard of selling websites.
  8. my shop is next door to Lewis saddle tree co. In between my leather work I cover their trees with fiberglass for them. The mini tree is the last one I have made by Wilford Lewis.
  9. Here is my first half scale saddle
  10. All new conchos. Same style with the diamonds only I had to re-design it for bigger diamonds since I couldn't fine the tiny ones that was used before. I replaced the back cantel binding and the padded seat. And some of the buckstitching. It was fun trying to match the new buckstitching color to the old yellow ones that use to be white.
  11. Long tiny nails that went all the was thru the other side of the wood. After it dried I clipped them off.
  12. In fact put in "brass eye hook" in any search engine and a whole lot of goodies comes up under jewelry clasps. You have to wade thru a lot of weeds to find what you want.
  13. Here some that you may be able to re-work into what you want. http://www.ebay.com/...=item564ecedabb http://www.etsy.com/search?includes[]=materials&q=brass+eye+hooks 2nd link isn't working right. When you get to the site put brass eye hook in the search box.
  14. The hard part was getting the rawhide cover to stay in place while it dried. The conchos are just brass tacks pushed into place. Needless to say there wasn't much wood to anchor to. For my part I thought it was kind of a shabby job with what i had to work with, but he liked it. I'll try to get a picture of a 1/2 scale saddle that I made put up.
  15. A customer brought this small tree in and asked me to make a saddle on it. I used smalls dees I had in the bin and I made the stirrups
