    First Holster - First Anything

    I concur. It will stretch and become loose if you don’t add stitch lines right up tight to the gun.

    process for edge paint

    There are quite a few videos on YouTube that show how people do edge paint. Also if you haven’t tried it yet use the search function on this site and it should bring up a bunch of posts on edge paint. Don’t burnish smooth before you paint though the leather needs a “tooth” for the paint to grip to.

    What is up with my bevelling?

    I’d say cut to deep. Immiketoo has a video titled. Cut shallower bevel deeper or something along that line.
  4. Nope. I was looking to see if it was Lacquer based. If so sounds like Neat Lac. You could call Weaver and ask them if it’s water or Lacquer based. That be where I’d start.
  5. Most either dye or antique edges. Either way it depend on the look you are going for. Personally I would dye for a uniform edge color. Don Gonzales has a good video on doing his belts. Actually a few each focused on different areas of work.
  6. Never used one but I think it’s way to hot. I would cut temp way down and experiment on scrap.

    Stamped Belt

    .8 thread and cheap amazon chisels at 6 spi. It’s much more pronounced in the pic than looking at it.
  8. A single layer stitched belt with skulls and a backgrounder for a guy at work.

    That is epic. Just perfection! Enough said.

    Pattern For A Beretta Px4 Storm Full Size

    @Dwight emailed one he drew up. With instructions on how to assemble as it was my third holster and slightly different construction than a “simple” pancake style.

    Burnishing - how many RPM?

    My Harbor Freight drill press is running at its slowest speed. It’s the small bench top one. It works just fine with a 1.5 inch burnisher. When I use it. Mostly just use canvas and water now because rarely do I use leather thicker than 5oz.
  13. They are Tandy Pro chisels I think it is 7spi. these are the ones I use mostly.
