  1. I do not have one yet, but I am going to get one. The reason being, after watching a video from Springfield Leather. They appear to have the ability to cut fairly tight curves, along with long flowing curves with ease. I don't think you'd do it quite as easy with a razor knife. The second big reason is skiving, and that is a huge one for me. The video shows Denny skiving a piece of leather and does it while making it look easy! The video is a bit long, but I think it points out the questions asked quite well. https://youtu.be/8ARqjhTGYR8 Terry
  2. I have not tried it from a phone, but there is another forum for computer type questions and maybe an answer to your question. http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showforum=33
  3. Dang, I didn't know you guys did those at Tandy that often! I live up in Rainier but work in Aloha, unfortunately I work graveyard and Friday night is one of my regular nights. Maybe one of these days I'll be able to stay up long enough after work to make one of them.
  4. I don't think they did when he made this post almost 6 years ago, they used to be wholesale only. This is a very old post that was resurrected by a reply.
  5. After trying a couple different ways myself, I looked at the forum for "Invision Power Services" who made the software for this forum and it is not an option as far as I can tell.
  6. Before you buy your granite slab, do yourself a favor and lookup kitchen counter top installation stores and see if you can get a scrap piece or a sink cutout. If you tell them what you are using it for, they will more than likely give you a piece or sell it cheap!
  7. This is not my design or site. http://goo.gl/njl0ul I just thought it was an interesting tooling pattern and wondered how he made that pattern. What stamping tool is being used? It also looks like there is a swivel knife cut through the center of the thread pattern. I'm also guessing you could do a similar pattern with actual red thread! Terry
  8. That sounds like a great idea! Isn't Nigel or @Dangerous Beans in one of those in the UK?
  9. WOW, he is extremely fast! It looks like a soldering iron or something like that.
  10. I resisted posting on the start of this thread... simply because I knew it would eventually get here!!!
  11. I purchased a beginner's kit from Springfield and it was a good start, but there are things in there that I haven't used. I bought the one that came with the granite slab (pricey to ship) and later found a local countertop/kitchen installer that gave me access to their scrap bin. I got another 12" x 12" piece of granite that is cut on 3 sides and I need to get a blade to cut the side that is not cut and they even gave it to me for free. I also bought a 16oz Barry King maul, and it feels amazing in my hand compared to the mallet that came in the kit. I also purchased a couple of different mallet/tools from Harbor Freight. I got a dead blow hammer and use it for stuff that might damage my BK prematurely. They also have a teflon(looking) small hammer/mallet. If I were to be looking for a maul now, it would still be between the BK and Maul Master found on Weaver Leather Supply. Take it for what you paid for this advice.. as I am a newbie but enjoying the craft.
  12. Received mine today, now I need to do another wallet to test it out! Thanks Matt, Terry
  13. PM sent! As for the mail, I used to work as a letter carrier. If you write on the letter "Hand Cancel" and add 21 cents more for postage, then they don't go through the hungry machines! Terry
