  1. So has anyone in the US taken possession of, and using an Outlaw to regularly make salable items? If so a critique as to quality of the results and the mechanical workings as compared to a Tippman would be a helpful addition to the forum. I had an older Cowboy motorized unit that I just never used that much so I sold it and am wondering about the hand crank units. Truthfully I never did get the motorized one fine tuned enough to get comfortable using it. It was always to fast for me even at the slowest I got it to run.
  2. Thank you, it was a lot of work over about 4 days but it turned out pretty nice, most of the wood was scrap I had in my garage from other projects, got lucky with the holes lining up for the all thread.
  3. Been a very long time since I last posted anything but here is a workbench I recently completed. I made it with 3/4" x 3" clear pine on edge with 3 all thread, washers and nuts through to each side to cinch it tight. Then surrounded by 3/4" x 4" red oak sides. I added a lowes vise to the front with doubled up oak and put a tool catch box on the back. I used the legs off an old computer desk and have since added pine frame on three sides as the legs allowed to much bounce. I am in the process of mounting various tools to T shaped pine that can be mounted in the vise such as stitching pony, granite stamping stone. fringe cutter, belt embosser etc. and someday a Tippman.
  4. I know this is an old topic but am bored today and thought I would just chime in. I have one of those hand crank units from Tandy. I do not use it much, but it works fine, after fidgeting with it to get it all adjusted right. I once had the whole thing spring apart halfway through a belt! My fault for not assembling it properly! The bronze embossing wheels are expensive, not really that great in the quality of it's imprints and not much of a variety out there. Wet press is the only way to get a proper emboss. About a year (2007 or so) after I bought it Tandy came out with an open end powered unit but a recent visit to the local store revealed the employees knew very little about either tool and they did not carry them. They did however have a Tippman Boss that I drooled over for awhile before the price tag shocked me back to the reality that I must hand sew for the time being LOL.
  5. loos like something for a sewing machine or a guide of some type to keep leather aligned for cutting, stamping, creasing or sewing, just a guess.
  6. looks quite handy and a great project to pass on the the scouts I used to lead. Plus will be put to good use I am sure.
  7. Hah, it will be awhile, my leather room is storage right now, until I get finished building a master bath! And I will need to learn how to bead as I do not see any in the stores I shop, but when I do I will certainly post pics.
  8. Well done, someday I will get around to trying a pair with the deerskin I have had on a back shelf for years.
  9. Been a long while, just dropped in to say hello to my fellow leather artisans.

  10. Just 2 pieces of scrap 1/2" knot free pine, carved profile and glued together, fairly easy but time consuming.

    Knife Sheaths

    Two sheaths 1 nordic style 1 pancake style

    It works YAY

    The wood protects the blade as it is soft pine, protects the leather from the blade and does act as a keeper as it is a friction fit plus ther is a drain hole in the bottom to prevent gunk from accumulating. I read about using wood on a traditional nordic sheath site there are others out there made from plastic and such.
  13. Yay for whatever reason I can post photos again!

      thank you, they work well also.

  14. Something is still fundamentally wrong with my account, no matter what I try I can not post any photo's I am frustrated to say the least. Great site though!
