    Diamond Chisel Recommendation Needed

    Have a look Nigel Armitage's youtube channel. He has reviewed most of the pricking irons out there. https://www.youtube.com/user/Nordicbadger
  2. I have some spare bits I will do some test. Thanks
  3. I am making a folio case and need to line it with pig skin, but the Horween leather I am using is very very waxy and I am worried the glue will not stick. I am wondering if there is away to remove the excess wax before I glue them togeather Anybody had the same problem and what did you do to get round it? Thanks
  4. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to making one

    Edge Finishing

    I use toothpicks on thin leather and pencils for thick leather. The wood seems to hold the edge paint better than any of the metal tools

    Maverick 'n' stuff

    I buy 90% of my leather from them. I have never had a problem.
  9. I think we all have done something like this. I made a bag looked great but the top was to stiff and the zipper cut into your hand every time you tried to use it. But its how we all learn.

    My problem with Etsy is I only make a few things a month and most of them are sold before they are finished, but now and again I have a single item to sell. But no one buys from a site with only one listing. I thought about putting my head down and making say 50 items as stock then listing them all at once, but I cannot face it. I like making things where I learn something new. I would be great if there was a supplier that made great items that I could buy $200 -$300 worth items and sell on my shop just to keep it ticking over. SO that my single items had a better chance of selling. Mick
