  1. We use our laser to cut die boards for our product dies. And to cut patterns. we also do a lot of one off jobs with the laser
  2. Additional die cuts and patterns
  3. Just knocked up 10 of these long holster die cuts. Used various oil tanned. We also do veg tanned. We are working on a line of die cuts or kits, whatever you prefer. The kits come with all hardware installed including zippers. I'm working on instructions as we go along. I made the dies with 1mm stich holes. These go together nicely. franksclassicleather.com
  4. We don’t want it to look like a Tandy boys scout kit.We want a nice finished product. Maybe a simple knife sheath for a scouts first pocket knife.between 5-$7 dollars
  5. Thanks for the feedback. The holes are .05” (1.27mm) The thread is 1 mm,it’s a pretty tight fit if you look at finished product,but yes I can make them smaller.Yes we putting together a program aimed at Scouts/Campfire ect.
  6. Was kinda asking for opinions on what might be a good kit for the aspiring leatherworker. These kits are aimed at the fella who doesn’t have room for a complete workshop. We do have a handful of local people who purchase,tool or stamp and sell at craft shows as an added to their other products. Sorry,wasn’t trying to sell just looking for feedback,and I appreciate your feedback.
  7. More laser cut kits. Although these kits are supplied with stitch holes, we can supply without stitch holes, which would include reference holes to line up pieces for machine sewing.The complete stitch hole kits have the needles, thread and all hardware/zippers ?installed where applicable. We are constantly updating and creating more products. Any suggestions ? https://franksclassicleather.com/shop/ols/products/long-wallet-kit https://franksclassicleather.com/shop/ols/products/natural-skirting-beltshoulder-bag-kit https://franksclassicleather.com/shop/ols/products/3-compartment-hand-stitched-wallet-kit https://franksclassicleather.com/shop/ols/products/flap-style-wallet-and-card-holder-kit https://franksclassicleather.com/shop/ols/products/buck-110-style-holster-sheath
  8. You should at least ask for a quote with DDP shipping. That is “Door to Door Paid”. Which includes all shipping,import duties,customs costs and local transport to your location. We have purchased manufacturing items from China and alway specify DDP. Watch out for DDU “door to door,unpaid”. Shipping ,transport you pay all customs ect,that can bite you.
  9. This long wallet is one of our laser cut kits. made from W&C skirting, split to the correct thickness for each part of the wallet. We apply a coat of tan coat to protect it, you can resoline or wax to finish. The hardware and the zips are installed. This kit is aimed at the hobbyist who just wants to finish a project without investing a boatload on tools. Just sew, finish the edges ,wax and your done. We are listing more on our website daily. We currently have about 12 kits listed.
  10. Correct Amigo. The lower power lasers also have a shorter focal distance, which makes for a smaller beam, therefore giving you a more precise greyscale print or engrave. Also the CO2 lasers don't fire much below 18-20%, so a 150 watt laser will only go down to about 30 watts to fire. Much to high for many engraving jobs. We have a 150w for mainly cutting, which we use in the 40-60% range. We also have a 60watt (Which tests @ 48watts,since new)which we use in the 20-50% range for engraving and dithered greyscale.
  11. We use our laser daily for production. Some products we prove and then have dies made. As far as the soot we use dried air from our shop compressor at about 50 PSI regulated ,which really lessens any burning. On products that we want no burn residue we use regulated CO2 instead of air which doesn't allow any burn. Sample of some cut pieces to be hand sewn. We sell these as kits, sew only. All of our in house manufacture is machine sewn.
  12. Holes are cut with laser. All of our kits the holes line up perfectly. Edge if you want and burnish, or just paint the edges. No sanding to line up edge. We cut all of our saddle stirrup fenders, many fancy bridle parts. The 60w we use exclusively for photo graphics and engraving. We also use it to cut outlines for carving.
  13. These are some products we produce daily from our 150 and 60w lasers.Just a few examples. Over 500 Holster designs on file. Our laser cutters and engravers have replaced hand cutting with precision cnc cutting.
  14. 550 +50 shipping with two bunkhouse rolls of course keys and wrenches Nail it down and start embossing.
