    Black River Laser Phone Number?

    Spoke with them a few weeks ago, said they were slammed with Ebay orders.

    Zack White - Where's My Order?

    I would also agree about phoning in orders, instead of web purchasing. I haveheard doing business with any company you are better off calling. Web order shipping prices are almost always more expensive. ASK THEM what shipping will be. You will see quite a difference. Hope it helps

    Question On Adhesives

    Hi Tboyce, I have used both and have found that the water based don't stand up as well. I use Barge on most pieces. Hope this helps? The Renman
  4. Have to agree with Eaglestroker, Pig split is soft and durable.
  5. Chief, Same here, I was asking him that I use a lot of barge (with dyes you mentioned also) on projects, mostly linings and he suggested using some Aussie, because my hands have been cracking. I guess we are "a hide" just like the Veg tan we work
  6. A little off topic, was in my local Tandy shop recently and the Manager mentioned that he even uses Aussie as a hand lotion. and puts on before he dyes/works with glue. Never used it myself these ways. Curious if any others have? RenMan
  7. I have tried a lot of adhesives on various projects. Have to agree with Matt T, Barge the best.

    A Pair Of Vambraces

    Quick question to the group. I have been making bracers/gauntlets for a few years now and curious what is the difference with them and Vambraces? Is it the length, style or cut? Any comments welcome Renman
