  1. Update: Weaver dies ( some but not all) are a low profile and will work on my United Carr press with a 2 3/4 " throat. The grommet setters are much taller in height, but have the 3/8 male end(s). So they may fit if you have more space in the throat. Call them directly as they can measure the dies for further details. Good luck!
  2. Hi Dikman, I've recently acquired a Carr model M236 it appears fantastic at first glance, as it has two pistons side by side to load two dies at once. The issue is the jaws have a 2 3/4 inch clearance. So the dies must be very low profile. The dies available from Weaver, etc. are much taller . Any suggestions? THANKS!!
  3. Hey Wildcow I just decided to part with my Class 14 splitter. 4 yrs old, seldom used. Stored in AC, located In central Florida. Runs like a hoss!
  4. Just out of curiosity, did you figure out that question about hair on hide inlay? And what was it that you were creating?

  5. Great work.....love that it is really something different!
  6. Brian, I am off to buy the roller foot for my skiver and if needed utilize your adaptions. Your advice is spot on for my alligator challenges.....thank you ! Thank you ! I look forward to future info. especially on edge work as exotics / gator is always a challenge. A huge hug from me to you! Jeanne
  7. Overal nicely done. But great job on the zipper too! They can be a :$&(@!
  8. hi Rocky, your buckle extension method is a great idea to avoid turning horn back/exotic to eliminate cracking the gator or to just to add additional length when material is limited. thanks for sharing this clever idea!! Fat Dog - Jeanne
  9. I own a cobra 4 and cannot say enough good things about the machine!!! Also own a class 18 - love it ! Customer service is excellent.

  10. Hey Cedric, 

    I am in Okeechobee where are you in the big Fla.?

      Very nice work. I would like to add alligator to my bags. Where do you buy your gator hides?

      Just starting to work with leather and lambskin ... this is the top opening section of a large duffle. I'm trying to figure out how to do a very clean, reversible, lambskin lining in all my bags.

      I see we both have the same crappy cutting mat. Numbers on the inside field instead of on the outside where you would be able to see them.

      I would love to find a good reliable source for alligator hides.

      thanks for sharing

  11. You both have beautiful work.... Edge painted or turned. Very, very nice!! Thanks for sharing.
  12. Brain, much thanks for the suggestions above. I am moving into a new shop and will definitely incorporate the vac system on the sander and vac on the skiver .... Using the high temp paint. Appreciate all your advice. Jeanne
