    List of Members sewing machines

    I learned on a Pro-2000 but currently used at my work ( tack repair) a Ferdinand 900b set up with 207/277 poly. I have in my own shop at home two Ferdinand 900b one set up for 138/207 and the other with 207/277 all the machines have clutch motors. I also have a Juki DNU1541 which I put a servo and speed reducer on a year ago. I love the fact that it will crawl. Most of my work is tack repair.

    Restoration Decals

    I have some Ferdinand Inc. decals available. These are high quality 3m vinyl reproductions. I had them made for my 900b Bull and have extras. $10 each.

    What to do with a 10-ft long strap?

    I didn't know that a hide could be 10 feet long?

    Bridle Leather Sheath

    I thought the same. The cleaver has some really nice detailed work.
  10. I was asked to make a sheath for this cool cleaver. Not really my thing but this is what I came up with. I used 8oz bridle and decided on a button instead of a snap. There is definitely room for improvement. But it's all fun

    What kind of leather should I use for tack making?

    I use Wicket & Craig or Sedgwick bridle leather for my English tack work. 9/10 oz. And split it if I need something lighter.
