  1. I've got setting tools for line 16, 20 and 24 snaps. The problem is, I don't have the instruction sheet (and pictures) that came with the kit. Does anyone have a set of instructions identifying these tools (from the Tandy "Snap Setter Kit") that could be scanned and posted? I can find pictures of the snap assemblies, but not side-by-side comparisons of the tools to help in picking the right tool. I'm afraid I'm not using the right tools for the right jobs, and since I lost the instruction flyer, I've been having some difficulties setting snaps.
  2. Here's a picture of the front page of the instruction manual, which has a picture of the shotgun case. Hope this helps.
  3. Pictures of the box?? I'm a little confused.... This is a kit.
  4. Are these directions still needed? I have scanned a PDF of the instruction booklet. I also have access to the tooling pattern that came with the kit, which includes templates for ALL of the leather pieces, and I could have a copy of that made at Kinkos, for a fee. The instruction booklet and the tooling pattern combined have adequate information to permit a person to make the case from scratch.
  5. I have a vintage Tandy 4412 Guardian Shotgun Case Kit for sale, dating from 1983. The kit, for a sheepskin leather case with acrylic pile and foam lining, is in excellent condition and includes all necessary parts (see note), an instruction manual, and a carving pattern. The carving pattern includes full-size templates of the leather pieces and could be used to make additional cases of the same design. The very small zipper pull piece is missing, but a template for the piece (easily cut) is present in the carving pattern, and I have included a piece of leather to use for this piece. Satisfaction is guaranteed, or the item may be returned within 30 days (unused, in the original packaging) for a full refund. Asking price: $97.00
  6. Thanks to all for the helpful feedback. I don't know if there is anything I can do about the cookies, but I'll try making the image files smaller. (Can't put my web site designer on the problem as that would be me!) Corsetfitzbakersfield, I would indeed appreciate that link's you mention.
  7. P.S. -- Is anybody else having trouble with the site?
  8. I' m surprised. The link is working on my PC, and gives a fair approximation of the site on my Kindle (some distortions). What are you using?
  9. I'm just getting my company up and running and now have a new web site -- http://www.cactuswrenleather.com Critiques on the site or on any of the work shown in the pictures are welcome! Karen
