  1. Hey! Thanks for the response everyone! Really has helped me out! I'm going to get that dead-blow mallet and take my punches in to be sharpened!
  2. Hello everyone! I am using a strap end punch with a poly mallet that just doesn't pack the punch needed to get through the leather. I've done some research on what mallet would be better to use and I keep coming up with a maul. Tandy leather sells them, however they are quite expensive and out of my price range. My question is, with a strap end punch, what is an effective, affordable mallet to use? Could I just pick up a 1 pound rubber mallet at Home Depot? Thanks for reading! -David
  3. I don't have a machine, is it impossible to do by hand? Or a big challenge? I'd love to give it a try. I've been looking at a lot of pictures and I think I know what to do...
  4. I just tried that and I think you're right! Now I need to invest in more punches! Thank You!
  5. Hello, This is a question thats been on my mind for awhile now... I'm trying to get "sides" stitched into a small pouch but they turn out rough every time. Is there a better way to do this? I've included a pic so you all know what I'm talking about...
  6. Hello, I was wondering what is the best tool to cut tight curves with? I'm using an x-acto knife with a no. 11 blade, a rotary cutter, leather sheers, and a standard utility blade. I'm having difficulty cutting tight curves into 3oz. leather. Is there a tool that would be a better fit for these types of cuts? Or is this just a skill level issue?
