  1. Thanks ! I love it. Have any more old tricks by chance?
  2. Ohio travel bag is also a good source. I believe you can get a catalog from them. buckleguy also has a new catalog out, haven't seen it though. just going through one you will learn lots. I do wish however , that they would show finished projects with some items.
  3. Hi Heather. Please check your email. email came back as undeliverable. could you please give the first part again? (before @) Or you can message me here.
  4. Thank you so much Mr. Wiz! Think I need to stick with the two machines even if it takes a while. If I start messing around trying to do as your blog says, I will most likely have a very expensive boat anchor.
  5. Thought I had a machine picked out for now and then a heavier one for down the road. Now I see this 5100. Says light to heavy leather and 69 to 415 thread. So I am wondering if any of you have practical knowledge of this machine? Kind of seems to good to be true? Thanks y'all.
  6. Not sure what you have now, but look at Ohio travel bag. https://ohiotravelbag.com/collections/snaps/products/10129-blkox?variant=30383133786196
  7. I have never tried this for shoes, but for other applications, so not sure if it works. What if you took a dense foam, like Eva, in the thickness you need and add it to your last? It might need to be a bit thicker so when taping it down the compression is factored in. Good luck.
  8. Very nice! can we see the back as well? Is that elastic or velcro on the sides?
  9. Nice looking sheath Chris. You are off to a great start. I would only add my 2 cents on your stitching. Find Nigel Armitage on both youtube and video (well worth the small fee), also dangerous beans on this site. you will learn many different ways to get the look you desire. The other bit is the length of thread. The calculator asked for ounces correct? So if you are using say 10oz leather and have 4 layers, you would enter 40oz. That will get you closer to correct length. As I wrote that it dawned on me I would make it 3 layers for the welt. Not only does the welt give the depth you need it also protects your stitching from the blade. By using 4 layers you have the blade centered on the stitching again.
  10. Well Chuck found the same bad link as I did. But the other bit that may be confusing to some is your return policy. One place it says it is free and further down the page it says buyer responsible for payment. I think I know what you are getting at, but it could cause you some grief. Overall nice site.
  11. Cool beans! I just love to see something unique. Good job.
