  1. use masters all purpose cement and a good hair brush...it dries fast and is perfect for watch straps get a good container for it and buy the thinner..you will need it
  2. Leather splitters?

     Hi Greg! I read many of your posts and perhaps I'm confused but do you have both the TECHSEW SP-20 leather splitter and the COBRA class 14 leather splitter. If so I was wondering which one you like better? are they different and how so? I am in the market for a splitter and have narrowed it down to these two.  I think a TECHSEW SP-20 vs cobra class 14 leather splitter would make a great post on  leatherworker.net  I am leaning  towards TECHSEW but would love to know your opinion?  Super Nice Watchbands BTW!!

  3. having trouble with Techsew 2750 prothat I have been using for years with 2 layers of calfskin glued with Masters 18 needle,69 thread top and bottom went through the drill of getting tension correct and when I sew seen in the picture the top stitch looks fine but when I go in the vertical direction in the picture the knots are consistenly showing on the bottom when I go horizontal in the picture seen here top and bottom tension are fine HELP?? not sure what else to do here I have re threaded, changed needles, tension spring is fine etc everything I know to do.. thank you for any help here (Techsew customer support is now by email only and they did not help me like they used to) Greg bottom is on left and top stitch is on right
  4. Thank you for all of the work and hand sewing would work great that way. These are done on a roller foot sewing machine with no hand sewing. I think some of the sewing is done before the “flap” near the watch is put down and sewn in.
  5. Yes it is a puzzle. That is the way I thought to do it but I hope someone has another idea also! thank you
  6. Where to start and end. I have made straps similar but how would you stitch this? Can it be done continuously? The original maker uses an old roller foot. thank you.
  7. This item has been claimed here by a member. Sorry I couldn’t post pictures from my phone. Thank you everyone
  8. Willing to give this to a leatherworker who wants to hit stamp! This site helped me so much to get started so I want to give back. Hot stamper. Beginner model and hardly used as I bought a more advanced machine. This is the model of hot stamping press sold here by LW LEATHER. PICK UP at my office Aurora Illinois. Will not ship Yes Free!! contact me for pictures. Email best Greg gregspitz@922Leather.com
  9. use an edge creaser and put a dot with your awl at the tip...4 stitches before getting to the point start planning...change stitch lengths appropriately like anything it will take some time to get this down usually finishing at the lugs in the same place is harder..I use the same method
  10. great first day with the Cobra Class 14 skiver...did veg tan thick and thin...and did Chromexcel without any issue.. Key is sharp blade of course...and take off relatively little at a time.. consistent end product..really happy about the machine made a belt and a thin wallet and it was fantastic hundreds of pictures on instagram of my work google 922Leather thanks everyone https://www.instagram.com/922leather/
  11. Dean thanks so much Greg Spitz MD,FACS! PS I use my Techsew Skiver to get down to paper thin if needed. Thanks
