  1. I just got some John James needles yesterday in the mail, there seems to be a big difference between them and Tandy's. The eye is much smaller. I should be test driving them by Wednesday.
  2. I have realized that it is hanging up on the eye of the needle. I was using Tandy needles. It looks like the eye is larger than the John James needles. Has anyone else had problems with Tandy needles?
  3. This might seem like a silly question, but does anyone have advice about being able to get a good grip on needles when hand stitching? I try and use the old Al Stohlman method of a needle and an awl in one hand and a needle in the other, but I find myself constantly setting down my awl to grab pliers to pull my needle through. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  4. A friend of mine found out that I have been doing leather work. He wants me to make him a pair of chinks. I have not made a pair yet. I bought the Tandy pattern for them. Anyone got any good tips for me to get started with? IE type of leather for belt and body, size of belt.
  5. Looks great!! I recently decided that I needed a stitching pony also. I made one out of sanded firring wood. I made mine so the vise rotates on the base. If you can find decent wood scraps to sand down you can build one for less than $2. I highly recommend a rotating one. It makes it nice for stitching
