  3. Light coats, keep the oil warm, and one of the bigger things, if your leather is on the softer side it will take oil faster, any kind of stamping will also take oil quicker, so light coats and set someplace warm to let the oil even out.
  4. A set of cowboy action holsters to fit 5 1/2" saa. Two layers herman oak 6/7oz, finished with a coat of neatsfoot oil and tancote.
  5. Use a liner and put the snap base in before you put the liner on.
  6. Latigo works much better for lining tack, seems to last longer than chrome tan, as far as thickness goes make you outer layer a shade thinner, for example if you want a finished piece at 14oz, use a 7oz veg and a 7oz latigo liner.
  7. No, I haven't used one, or bought a splitter at all, I've been keeping a eye out for a band knife though, .

  10. One of the fustrating things of relining skirts is when you cut the single row of stitches that hold the woolskins and plugs to the skirts and find the glue that was supposed to hold the plugs in place has broken down over the years, and now the plugs are laying on your bench, it takes some extra time to reglue them and properly get them back in place. So, When I build my skirts I use two rows of stitching, the inner row holds the plugs in place, and the outer row holds the woolskins. Just thought I'd share something that may make someone's job easier in the future.
