  1. DJI mini 2. Signed up for pilot Institute was 150 bucks and I can use it for CE credits once I get my commercial. Don't want to hijack the thread will PM you with more if you want.
  2. have you tried diluting the die? pro use alcohol for NORMAL use I start with 50/50. for lighter I would start with 55-60% alcohol to dye. test on a scrap piece and go till you find what you like
  3. If you want to preserve the numbers cut then out and sew them in to a replacement flap.
  4. Thanks Chuck. Had a problem logging in till I checked my email and found the provided password Doc
  5. I thought there were 2 different tools an edge bevler. and a keen edge bevler.
  6. Corter Leather Has a good example. And a good (IMHO) take on the bump jig thing here.
  7. Thanks. Have been saving patterns for years just waiting till I can get the time. I have been thinking about maybe the sight starting a library of patterns for organized browsing.
  8. I use high count(number thus more colors to choose from ) permanent markers making it easier to (color ) match. Then I use either a finish, thoronol or bees wax. And bonding another piece behind the torn piece binding both sides (big and small piece) should work. And just wondering have you thought about hiding the repair behind a "lining"?
  9. Sharp blade. Was having a hell of a time till I started using a strop.
  10. Have you tried grommets? A 2 piece eyelet like appliance.
  11. I get 1/4 inch conveyor belt material from a local company. Just rolled up with 10 bucks in my hand and asked if I could get some off cuts or cast offs. they not only cut if to size for me the gave me the rest put in my trunk and waved off the money. it lasts me about 5 to 6 months before I have to either turn it over or move to another space. BUT I was using an unstroped blade and WAY too much downward pressure not knowing how to strop. As of late it has been more than a year and still going strong.
