  1. The second to the left I have seen being used for the cut out of the insole of the shoe, to create a channel to sew your welt onto. at 16:50 of this video he uses it. Hope that helps.
  2. Ok so I been thinking for awhile and really want to get into shoe making/repair, have found a guy selling "Landis shoe finisher vacuum cabinet line. Landis No. 12 Model K outsole stitcher. Landis No. 36 Blake stitcher, two nailers, Shoe jack stand and assorted steel lasts and a heel press. Both the Model 12 and No. 36 were adjusted just a year ago" copied from seller. I'm wondering what some experienced people think of above machines, it would cost me 6k total to purchase and have them shipped to me, is that a good or bad deal? I understand it all depends on quality, so let's say for the sake of it that they all work. I'm more curious as to what I should know before purchasing, such as where to get parts, thread, new sanding components, are the machines known to have issues, and is that to much for all these machines, 1800 is shipping alone. Any advise is greatly appreciated!
  3. Not sure If I have ever posted these, but one is a custom tool holder and the other is my first ever holster, I have don't allot more and will post them later, but everything needs to be resized.
  4. I have not updated my little page in a while so Im just going to dump some pics of a few things I have made recently. First was a little pliers holster I guy wanted, He had one that was designed to be on his left, He wanted one for his right. Think that was my first time to ever basket weave. Next Is a little sheath Ill call it for lack of a better term, Customer wanted something he could toss into his glove box, got a little old glory tooled in, that was actually really hard to do for some reason haha. Next is a dog color and then a couple belts, followed by a few wallets I did for a fund raiser I went ahead and lasered on the t shirt logo for this year on two of them, turned out ok.
  5. Watched the YouTube vid you did last night, nice work for sure.
  6. Apologies I'm in southwest Kansas, no local leather dealers around that I am aware of. Although I think I'll give rockymountain leather a call and see what I can have done for me.
  7. Trying to find a place to buy super thin veg tan leather, needing it for super thin/light wallet, like what you would buy at wallmart 1/2 Oz more than likely. Can't seem to find anything that thin. I purchased the sk-4 skiver from tech sew and definitely have some learning to do on it so need to find pre thinned until I'm confident enough to make my own. This customer wants the check book style wallet lined as well so really trying to keep the bulk down on this the best I can.
  8. Hello again all! Just wondering if anyone has any decent recommendations on a cheaper sewing machine that will do basically what my techsew 5100 will not do, and that's the thinner leather, I need to be able to sew some super thin leather at times and the 5100 is to aggressive in my opinion for like 1-2 oz leather, I really only want to spend like 200 bucks if possible, but I'm wondering if like the singer 4411 would work, if anyone has experience with that kind of stuff would love to hear from you, I need to be able to sew like thin leather wallets, check book wallets, that kind of stuff, and not saying its not possible with the 5100 but I know the turn out would be better with a slightly less aggressive machine. Is a walking foot needed for that kind of stuff?
  9. Well those didn't turn out to bad.. I need to just do white letters on a fire shield. Basically the black would be white. But I need it to be bright. Just not much of a painter so want to stick with dye if possible.
  10. Ok, that's kinda how I thought the answers would be lol.. thank you
  11. Just like title says lol had anyone used white leather dye? If so do you have pics of it? Preferably on natural vegtan.
  12. Thank you all for the help and sorry for the faulty link. Customer and I decided that he would be better off purchasing chaps rather than making custom, just more cost effective. I'll get to make a pair someday lol.
  13. Maybe of help actually, what weight/type of leather did you use? The style customer wants are, https://www.teammotorcycle.com/classic-biker-leather-chaps. I just literally don't know where to start on this one. I have road bikes most my life and never ran chaps so I don't have an inside on this one.
  14. Any one have any advise or videos or books, knowledge on making motorcycle chaps? Have a customer asking me to make a pair, that falls out of things I have made lol so any help would be great.
  15. Lol yes sir, Takes a little time to remember things then it becomes natural, everything has to have its place haha.. I guarantee I have tools hanging in no time though. Actually one of the things I still have to figure out is what to do with all my mechanic tools that I have that shop right now... running out of room fast lol
