  2. Does anyone know where to buy cape buffalo hides? Thank you.
  3. I am looking for a new machine. The ones i am considering are the Cobra 4,Cowboy 4500 or possibly the Tecsew 5100. The problem is deciding on witch one to buy. I really like some of the features the tecsew has like the laser guide but not sure about buying from a company in Canada. I also like the stainless steel feet and throat plates on the Cowboy. I am leaning towards the Cobra as i have herd nothing but legendary service from Cobra Steve. So i am asking for help on deciding on who to go with. Thank you for the help. Derrill
  4. I want to make my own wallets from python and rattle snake. I would like to know if i should use a backing for the interior or do you think the skin is strong enough without a backer. I also was wondering if i need to put some kind of finish or some kind of protection on the skins. I really appreciate any and all help. Derrill

  6. thanks for the replies. I will return and stay away from tandy lace
  7. does anyone else have a problem with tandy's superior lace. I bought three rolls of natural and it is just dodo. it is all cracked and I cant even lace with it because of all the breaks. I also bought three rolls of black 3/16 and it is noticeably thicker andi have no problems with the black. would I be wrong to try and take it back for different lace? also wanted to ask if anyone has used the superior lace from springfield and is it of better quality? thanks
  8. I will be starting a new case tomorrow and will post better pics of the work in progress.
  9. I would love to post more pics but I mailed it off to a friend today.
  10. all I have is my cell phone and it dosent take very good pics.
