  1. I have been getting my waxed canvas from Fairfield Textile for the last ten years Martexin Original Wax #10 Duck great stuff to work with. I make 1/2" leather washers out of my scrap leather and use them on the inside of the bags. The straps are not sewn on and my bags and the bags are not lined. Here is a link to Fairfield Textile this is great material to make bags out of. Hope this helps... Thanks. https://fairfieldfabrics.3dcartstores.com/10-Duck_c_29.html
  2. Finished these Waxed Canvas Tote Bags with Wickett & Craig English Bridle leather straps. I you a CB4500 with #277 Thread I bought this machine from Bob Kovar over at Toledo Industrial Sewing Machines in 9/2015 it was the best purchase I have made for my leather work. Was using a Singer 7/34 it was a very cool machine but you can only do so much with it. Bob is a great person to deal with if you need a new machine give Bob a call over at Toledo 866-362-7397.

  6. Can I ask you a simple question Why would you put this clown Suchwarzenegger on this post. This is not the place for political BS. This is a great place to learn about leather working people don't want to see this BS. Please take it down.
  7. That is a great machine I used one for years sewing leather. The machine I had was updated with reserve. I miss that old machine, learned a lot about sewing machines having used 7-34 for years. Upgraded years later to a CB-4500.
