    Help identifying a cutting machine

    I went to talk to a guy that’s runs a pawn shop because I knew he’d gotten some leather equipment in a long while back, but he didn’t know what he wanted to sell and what he wanted to keep. But now he wants to offload whatever he can. I jumped on the chandler walking foot for $500, and we’ve settled on $500 for this machine, but I don’t know anything about it. I don’t have a problem walking away from it, but if it works and cuts leather strips, I’m down like 4 flat tires. Any info would be greatly appreciated, especially replacement parts and maybe even how to use it.

    Flap Holster

    I see what you mean. No, it’s where the dye changed the color and made it blend in. I’ve never had that happen before until this run with saddle tan, but it’s done it on 3 projects. Thank you! Thank you very much. The customer was specific about what he wanted. Thank you very much!
  4. Flap holster for a Browning Hi-Power. There are 4 Chicago screws on the back to attach it to the pancake. The pancake portion is 7/8 oz and the backing is 3/4 oz. The main holster is 6/7 oz and lined with 4/5 oz. 7/8 oz welt

    One year on.

    One of my favorite things is getting pictures from customers of items I’ve made for them. I encourage them to email or text me pictures, or upload them to my Facebook page. It’s a really cool thing to see over time.

    Veg Tan Knife Roll

    Imagination. And a small piece of scrap as a welt. I was all ready to, and then I had the straps there and for some weird reason, I liked how it looked. But I should have burnished them. All of it was stitched with the boss. So less fingertip pain, and more elbow/shoulder pain.
  13. Made out of 4/5 oz Hermann Oak veg tan. Used Fiebings walnut dye and then finished it with some carnauba cream. The pocket flap is 3/4 oz and the straps are 1/4” 7/8 oz. buckles came from buckleguy. The customer loves it. He’s messaged me twice already telling me how much he loves it.
