  1. Thanks to everyone for your input. Greatly appreciated!
  2. What are the pros and cons on using Fiebings Pro Dye vs Fiebings Leather Dye?
  3. What thickness thread do you normally use?
  4. What kind of thread do you use hand stitching/saddle stitching holsters. I've normally used the generic white waxed thread from Tandy but I'd like to try something different.
  5. Is there a chart/PDF that shows what size needles and thread to use together for saddle stitch work? And what size thread to use for various projects?
  6. Looks like even though the unit is new the blade still needs to be honed top and bottom. Then it needs to be sharpened to a razors edge. Also the blade edge needs to be at the apex of the roller.
  7. Sharpening seems to be the consensus. But I also wonder about the position of the blade to the roller.
  8. I recently purchased the Deluxe Craftool Leather Splitter. It works great on narrow pieces less than 1 1/4" wide. But if you go any wider it's almost impossible to split it. It still set at the factory default sittings. I've been looking for a video about setting up the splitter but all I can find are demos. Does anyone know if such a video exists? Thank you and God bless. Wayne
  9. Thank you! Merry Christmas and God bless!!
  10. Thanks for your input greatly appreciated.
  11. Ok rookie question. How do you get the two/multi tone finish on a project like in the attached picture. Without spending a lot of money. Thanks and God bless.
  12. I hate show my ignorance but here goes. I recently purchased some leather working tools that included flat blade tools Lacing/Stitching tools. I’ve noticed they also make Diamond Hole lacing/Stitching Chisel tools. Other than the obvious shape of the hole is there a big difference in which one you use? I’d be curious to hear your personal preferences and why. Thanks for your input and God bless. If the grass is really greener on the other side. Maybe it’s because someone else is taking care of it.
  13. I'm in the market for some leather stamps but unsure what size to purchase. I assume like everything it depends on the application. For example stamps for a belt might be bigger than for a wallet. So I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on what would be a good size for a first set of stamps. Thanks, And God bless....
