    Rivet Help

    I am trying to find a replacement for these rivets that came off a handbag and was wondering if anyone knew what they are called? The rivet itself is 2 pieces, the long one on the right then a cap and shaft that goes over the other end. The hex head caps goes over the top of the round head and are held on with teeth. Im not even sure what to enter to search them. The post length is 5/8" Thank you Adam
  3. Does anyone know where i can find 2 1/2" belt buckles. I would like an antique brass buckle but brass would be fine as well. I am struggling to find anything that looks decent. Thank you for your help
  4. Why didn't i think of that! Thats a great idea! Thank you
  5. I was asked if I could alter a couple of belt for a customer that had lost a significant amount of weight. They are caiman so i dont think he wants to get something brand new. The problem is they look machine stitched, so if i cut off the end, then the stitching will start to come out. I dont own a sewing machine and dont even know how to use one, so would it be possible to back-stitch by hand and then hand stitch the new end? Thanks for the advice Adam
  6. I was wondering if anyone has used this nano suction sheet for iphone wallets or anything else https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/nano-suction-sheet-8-1-2-x-11-x-1-mm-216-x-279-x-1-mm I am planning on using it for my next project but want to know how other members have liked it or didnt like it. I am making a book style iphone 8plus wallet. Thank you Adam
  7. I am in the process of making a back pack, and I am going to make the top a cinch drawstring and a flap, like the picture below. I wanted to add a little flair to it by making the cinch drawstring a bolo tie. Has anyone done this before and did it work? Does anyone think this wont work? What i am worried about is that the bolo tie wont have enough tension to keep it closed. Thanks for the responses
  8. @mustangman2 They have great hardware but Im looking for more options
  9. I am trying to find twist lock closure that are more decorative. Almost everything ive been able to find is very basic. Does anyone know where i can find more of a selection besides hearts and butterflys? Thanks for the help Adam
  10. I did send an email to the supplier. I am waiting for the reply. But that is a good point, socks would soak up the oil if used for boots.
  11. I bought a side of oil tanned leather from Springfield Leather and i noticed how oily it was from the beginning. I decided to use it and i made a piece with veg tanned accents. After a few hours the oil seeped into the veg tanned leather. It doesn't look bad but i am worried about it getting into any content put into the bag. Is there a way to leech excess oil from the leather with rice or something like that?
  12. I was wondering where everyone got their blue guns from? Ive looked around and seen them for around $50. Is that a fair price?
  13. Does anyone know of a tutorial of how to make pool table pockets or some instructions somewhere? Thanks!!!
  14. I want to make templates for some of the more common items i make but i dont know what to use to create the templates. I was thinking of going to tap plastics and getting a plastic that cuts easily and keeps its form. Is there any other suggestions? Ive used thick cardboard but the edges start to bend after a while and i dont get straight lines. Thanks
  15. Its hard to get the dye to take, is there something I should be doing to the leather before hand?
