  1. That's the same machine I have. Good machine.
  2. You can get quarts of Fiebings professional oil dye at Sav-More leather in downtown LA if you have a resale certificate from the BOE.
  3. The OTB ones aren't that better than Tandy. I wish there was better ones.
  4. Bob, Is white label production part of your business model?
  5. Don't confuse making a few bucks today with building a brand. Think of it this way. Selling your items without your mark is like working for a salary. Selling your work with your mark is like working for a salary plus stock options. Have enough ego to believe in yourself. If you don't believe in yourself, no one else will.
  6. Ha! Cause John Bianchi is so short on ego. If you want to be a renowned holster maker put your mark on it. If you're okay just making a few bucks an toiling away in the shadows leave it off.
  7. It's insulting and I hate when people ask me to leave my maker's mark off. I tell them I don't sell items I make without my mark.
  8. If the right things are on sale I'm ready to buy.
  9. Does anyone know of a book about their history? According to their wiki page they did harness and saddle mostly until the 1920s.
  10. Nice bag. What makes it "Hermes saddle stitching" as opposed to saddle stitching that actual saddle makers have been using for hundreds of years?
  11. Very cool! Thanks for your generosity.
