  1. One of the bigger reasons for no liner is cost, to line takes twice the material and adds labor. At least from a production standpoint.
  2. The other plus tax veg liner made from the same thickness as the front is it makes for a nice rigid holster that holds it's shape, kinda like how plywood gets its strength.
  3. +1 on the veg liner, mine are the same stuff the fronts are cut from, usually 4/5oz for pancakes.

    Barge cement not sticking

    Use two coats on each piece, let first dry completely, let second dry to where your finger will barely stick to it, then put together and apply some pressure, such as hammering if your project allows.

    Shipping a Saddle

    Big box, fold stirrups into woolskin, use cheap pillows for cushion, wrap horn with scrap wool skin.
  6. Good looking rig, for cas I'd leave the bullet loops off, so there would be room for a shotgun slide with a couple loops for a on the clock reload.
  7. They are the same needles as a 441 clone, schmetz has sizes marked a couple of different ways on there packages
  8. 277 top and bottom, get a few different sizes of needles, I think they use the same needle class as a 441 clone, I use sizes 22, 23, 24, 25 and 26, depending on the thickness of the material and how the stitching needs to look.
  9. Anything over 6 oz would sew ok in a cowboy 4500, anything less the consew 206 or a class 26 cobra would work well,
  10. 14 oz finished thickness
  11. Finished up a cowboy action competition rig, 7 1/2" Ruger vaqueros. Outside and the liner are 6/7 Hermann oak, Jeremiah watt buckle, saddle tan fiebings dye, finished with tankote

    swivel knife made on mini lathe

    Not a bad looking knife, the ring works well for people with hand issues, don't have to worry as much about dropping it, what did you use for a bearing under the saddle? What kind of blade is in it?
  13. Looks good, also if you run a overstitch wheel over the stitching it will even out and help set the stitches.
  14. Did you welt the seam to protect the stitching as the knife slides in and out?
