  1. Sorry Fred. https://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/leather-paint?msclkid=85abe685c9e118d7079386eb73b34acd&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=[FCUK] Catch All | Shopping | Bing&utm_term=4578160299229517&utm_content=All Products
  2. Here's some UK stuff that I've not seen before. Claims are great and cheap enough. Anyone tried it?
  3. You're making problems where there are none. Use contact cement especially around the edges. Use whatever to align, bolts/cocktail sticks through holes. if really finicky use some pieces of slippery stuff between the glued parts that you can pull out as and when. The fuel/water protection is down to what you put on afterrward. Good luck and don't forget to show us pictures.

    Dog collar #4

    Nice Job Lily. Is the name burn't on or stamped and dyed? Don't know where you're from but over here in the UK the prices of puppies have gone through the roof and hence dog stealing is getting worse. For this reason we're encouraged to just put an address or phone number on the collar instead of a name so whoever steals the dog doesn't know what to call it. It's a shame because the name thing is part of our love for the dog.
  5. Like I said, I had a quick look and couldn't see it and I knew it was somewhere and I'm fairly computer savvy so what does that tell you? I would go further and add a link on this page I'm typing on right now that's inviting people to post pics but doesn't give any help when they can't post em.
  6. This suggests that you're hot stamping. It also suggests that the flesh side is fairly smooth. Have you considered foiling? Comes in gold silver blue pink etc etc. The point being the temperatures used for foiling are much lower and the contact is very brief compared to hot stamping
  7. This comes up an inordinate amount of times and it's come up again today. I know theres a post about it somewhere but I just had a quick look and I couldn't find it. Why is it not stickied on the top of "How do I do that?"
  8. Stitch then glue then trim When dry.
  9. Stiffen the "spine" under the handle and the two side gussets.
  10. FWIW Klara the bungee idea is incorporated in many yacht mooring/anchor lines to eliminate "snatch" when the boat is dancing on the waves. it would save your arm somewhat when he's pulling. You would have to trial & error to find the strength of bungee needed to hold the dog without releasing unintentionally. Good luck and don't forget to come back and show the result with pics. We love pics on here. There was someone who did really awesome sighthound tooled collars on here. Think they were from an Eastern Bloc country. Can anyone find it for Klara?
  11. I was thinking about looking at some of the principles. Maybe they don't have to be metal. I'm not sure what you want this collar to do but off the top of my head imagine the main part of this hook to be a stiff piece of leather folded back on itself. now imagine the main leash just attached to the oval retainer. Now imagine a short length of bungee rubber attached to the eye and sewn onto the main leash in such a way as to leave an amount of slack in the main leash when the rudder is taut but not pulled. The idea being when walking the dog the rubber is taking the strain. When you want a quick release you pull on the leash, stretching the rubber enough for the main leash to slip the oval to let the dog run free. It's a bit rough but I've only just thought of it and merely offered as an example of what might be done.
  12. It's just a roller with a shoulder at each end that sits in a trough. If you don't know anyone with a lathe it wouldn't be hard to dowith a drill and a small grinder and a file. I can provide the measurements.
  13. I remembered the name Pelican hook from my sailing days long ago. Might give you some inspiration. https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1AOHY_enGB783GB783&q=pelican+hook&tbm=isch&chips=q:pelican+hook,g_1:quick+release:Xm_qFvuBYcc%3D&usg=AI4_-kQc_4kihO_CWqDPPJAgUaUoACQ8bg&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjuoIu70NrvAhWLa8AKHRXnD9IQgIoDKAB6BAgFEAY&biw=1600&bih=813
  14. Exactly. It makes no sense to have one rule for quali and then change it for race day but it was what it was so why allow Hamilton to do it around 30 times during the race and then was told to stop doing it?
  15. I started my business with nothing.... and I've still got most of it!
