  1. If your lace brakes in the middle doing double loop lace, what double you do to fix it?
  2. What do you do when the rough side of leather that is inside of a holster is really rough? I really don't want to line it.
  3. Is there anywhere to get 1 1/4 alphabet letter stamps? Or any suggestions best way to make them? I am working on my Santa belt and either just going to do SC or spell SANTA out centered on the belt with the sleigh coming off each side.
  4. Is there a video or something else to show how to use it correctly? I have tried several times but can't seem to make it look right. Just put it aside but now would like to use it on a project.
  5. I am working on my Santa belt that is 4 inches wide. After my border, I need 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 letters. No want makes letter stamps that large and honestly I am not good at lettering. Any suggestions?
  6. Yes the one pictured is hollow ground. My straight blade like yours is what I started out with but it's cuts were worst
  7. Here is picture of my practice cuts and my knife.
  8. Yes I wet the leather and let dry to start looking the color of the leather. This is a cover for a Tandy leather pouch. Maybe 2-3oz.
  9. Sometimes it seems the blade will just cut so deep and it doesn't seem deep. Here is one I just finished the cuts and stamping
  10. Here is one. It came out looking to flat because the cuts were too shallow
  11. My latest finished one. Thinking I need to get a sewing machine and learn how to use it. Take a while to stitch theses by hand.
  12. Sometimes when I am doing the cuts for a carving pattern, they don't seem to be deep enough to get nice even indentations when using the bvevelers or other pattern tools. What am I doing wrong? I strop my blade before start. I don't do a lot of carving for that reason. I do stamping more.
