  1. Trust me if I had the chance to I would have. When removing the housing it stuck pretty good and then came flying out unplugged. So never even had a chance to see it’s original state. Thank you so much for the explanation! I’ll give it a whirl when I get back to the shop and let you know it goes. Much appreciated! Also apologies for the thread mislocation. I thought I HAD set it up in the sewing machine topic section.
  2. Howdy leather friends! I have an Artisan Toro 3000 that I need to replace the on/off rocker switch on the servo motor. I got the switch housing, exact same one, but i can’t figure out how to reconnect it. 4 prongs, 4 wires. 1 red, 1 double red, 1 blue and 1 white/ taupe(?). I’m not electrical savvy in the slightest so please forgive my ignorance. I’ve included some pics of what I’ve got. Thank you in advance!
  3. I'd definitely recommend Jeff at Grey Ghost Graphics for a stamp if you want your actual logo and not just the traditional "maker" stamp. He is a great dude and mine has been kicking ass for some time now.
  4. Haha not real sure why ants... It was the clients request, so I obliged! Thanks for the kind words too!
  5. Just finished this up and I'm super happy with how it came out. Especially the rich finish. It's kinda hard to tell but it's covered in ants. And I couldn't find an ant stamp so every single one of them was hand carved one by one. It was reeeeal fun... Haha. The inside is "upholstered" with faux lynx fur, fancy touch. Let me know what y'all think!
  6. I'm sure you'll notice the smudge just near the bottom snap on the front. Grey finger print. No idea where it came from but it happened during tooling and Fiebing's Deglazer couldn't get it off so it's there for life I guess. Thanks y'all.
  7. Some of y'all might have already seen this in the "Show Off" section, but I figured I'd put it where it belongs. For anyone to whom this is new, know this: This will NOT be used by anyone, it was just sort of a practice run to see if I could do it. Hence, no mounting hardware. So don't worry, haha. Feel free to critique and/or question away! -Seth
  8. Special thanks to Seth and Tom at Tandy in Winter Park for the help with this tough ass cuff And in case anyone's wondering, the finish on this ID case is just neatsfoot then Eco Flo Green Tea Hi-Liter sealed with Saddle Lac. Came out pretty awesome, with the natural leather peeking through and whatnot. Take it easy, y'all!
  9. Nothing fancy here... but I thought I'd add a little fun to this bag with some lynx fur liner. Hope ya'll like it! Thanks y'all! -The Wolf
  10. Thanks a lot for all the encouragement, y'all! And yes this was just a practice seat so no one will be riding it. I should have mentioned that more clearly, haha. Thanks again! -The Wolf
  11. Thanks Troy! Yeah there are a few things that got realized "in retrospect" but that's the fun of learning. Luckily this is just a demo seat so no one will actually be riding this... At least not that I know of! I also happened to use like 7 oz leather which I found was a bit thicker than necessary so it would be pretty strong... Maybe, haha. Thanks again man!
  12. I can honestly say I'm a lot more happy about how this turned out than I expected. The pan is a bit flat for my taste, but it was the cheapest I could find on eBay and this was just so I could test my abilities. And sorry for the blurry sideshot. Let 'er rip! -The Wolf
  13. Thanks y'all! Yeah I'm really happy with that stamp. Got it from Jeff @ GreyGhostGraphics.com He's a super nice dude and it was only $65 using MY custom artwork!
  14. I know the holes are a bit wonky but be gentle, haha. I've never had to punch so many holes one at a time! Freshly carved After some neatsfoot oil Stained, antiqued, and saddle lac'd I should have some final product pics up by tomorrow! Thanks y'all and I welcome any tips or critiques, as always. -The Wolf
