  1. +1 for Panhandle Leather... I live less than two miles from them so the cost of shipping is really cheap for me...
  2. Nice work... How did you attach the US Army medallion? I did one years ago with a state seal medallion and it had a binding screw post that went all the way through. I am not seeing a bump between the two pieces of leather where a screw head would be - if that makes sense...

  4. Great job on the moccasins - I really like the design and the rustic look of the leather. I have made a couple of pairs for myself and wear them almost everyday. They are the most comfortable shoes that I own. I would have thought that 8oz would be a little heavy, but if it works it works. I may have to try some buffalo for my next pair... Do you use some type of insole? If so what do you use? I tried using a removal insole, but that did not work for me, so I glued mine in permanently...
  5. Translation - Learning to work industrial machines for leather. What type of needle should I use to sew with nylon 16 thread?

  11. I am not sure if this will help, but if all else fails, you can buy a mini saddle kit here https://www.riorondo.com/ I have no affiliation to this site and know nothing about the products sold on it.
  12. This is what I use... This thing cuts with heat and burns the ends at the same time... https://www.amazon.com/Berkley-BTHLC-Hot-Line-Cutter/dp/B004DIH2DS
  13. I work a lot in the Lubbock area - Slaton, Post, Wolfforth, etc. I spent all of last week down there - not a bad town, but it is a busy place...
  14. You can do that with these as well - just depends on how you want to make it work for you...
