    Aliminum burr rivets

    Thank you for your feedback
  3. I was wondering if anyone has used the aluminum burr rivets and what their opinion is? Tandy carries them and I tried them on a dog collar. They were nice to work with. I can't seem to find another source for them other than Tandy. I'm just wondering about longevity. I need something strong and silver colored. I know I can use Chicago screws but I was looking for something a little thinner and lower profile. Thanks, Julie

    Rim Sets-long leg silver 12ss

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has been able to find 12ss silver long leg rim sets? Dreamtime only carries the gold in the long leg and I've looked all over the internet with no luck. Thank you!
  5. Thank you guys for all your input!!! Super helpful!
  6. Hi there, I've signed up for my first leather class and need to bring tools. I know some of you clever people have some great ways to travel with your stuff! Im also not sure what tools to bring? It's a figure carving class. I was looking at an ammo case and my husband said he''d make me a small wood block for a tool holder. I'd love your ideas and pics if you have them. Thank you!

    Fire Fighting Templates

    Hi there, Looking for a radio holster template for a BK radio(Bendix King) OR any holster. I can make adjustments to measurements. Thanks
  8. Thank you Buzzardbait! I appreciate it!
  9. I would like to invest in a couple of nice beveling stamps. I am looking for some recommendations. I've looked at Barry King's website and there are so many which is great but I don't know what the difference is between a few. I know I want a smooth beveler. I make dog collars and therefore work quite small. My go to Craftool bevelers is a B935 and B203. A few of my questions are 1) What is an undercut beveler? 2)What are your favorite brands, BK, ect? 3)Is there a way to figure out what angle the Craftool bevelers are so I can compare them mentally? Right now Im looking at either the BK line but am not sure about the regular, 15 degree or xx steep. Thanks in advance! Julie
  10. Thank you Halitech. It will be a tooled dog collar with white designs painted on.
  11. Hi, I have some vinegaroon that is about a year old. Its been stored in a mason jar. I tried a tester piece of leather and it worked fine and blackened the leather fairly quickly(2 minutes). I neutralized and applied neatsfoot oil while it was still damp. How long have you stored your vinegaroon. I have read a few stories on here about vinegaroon dyed pieces fading over time. I was wondering if anyone has ever applied a spirit black dye over vinegaroon. I would think it might add a deeper black to the occasional issue of the vinegaroon being a dark gray sometimes. I am guessing once the vinegaroon piece has been neutralized it should be ok to dye for the extra insurance that the piece stays a nice deep black? Thanks for any input!!
  12. Thank you Bill, Mike and Cowboycolonel. I will check them out. I appreciate the recommendations!! Julie
  13. I was wondering if there are any good DVD's you can recommend for basic to advanced leather carving and tooling. I am a visual learner and would love to find a few good DVD's. Or if there are any on youtube you really like that would be great too. I've scoured youtube but Im sure I haven't found them all! Thanks
  14. I ordered some new stainless steel 1" center bar roller buckles from Weaver. I have the same style Tandy chrome plated buckle. I wanted to get started on the dog collar I am making with this buckle but Im a little leary that the sizes might be a bit different. I was wondering if anyone has used both and knows for sure? I know in theory they should be the same. If it's even 1/32" difference my collar will not fit. Thank you! Weaver buckle Tandy buckle
