  1. If you're on the fence about buying any of these, I got a J frame and several others. Rick was great to work with and the molds came very well packaged, at a reasonable price.
  2. I did, and shipped them out. Should I mark this as sold?
  3. Thanks! I kinda thought it looked like Aaron's version, but wasn\t sure.
  4. If you post the pattern, I'd buy it either here or on your etsy store. Especially if it's up before your Christmas coupon expires.
  5. Is the pattern for that dopp bag available somewhere? Happy to pay the creator.
  6. One more alternative. I found some 0.5oz kangaroo skin on ebay. It was about as thick as tyvek, cut with my roller, and glued up great. Until it ran out, I used it just like Aaron uses tyvek in the Makers Leather videos, and then used "kangaroo hide pockets" as an additional marketing point. Sadly, I haven't been able to find any more since that one order.
  7. I got a used Cobra 26 with the old style hook, and when I ordered new bobbins, I mistakenly ordered the size U. Leather Machine Company took care of me and they're sending me replacements in the right size, so I'll pay it forward. PM me your address, and I'll send you the bobbins. I'll pay postage to US addresses. James
  8. Y'know, I think I'm eligible for adoption, if you're looking for a low-maintenance addition to your family. Beautiful shop!
  9. Check the date on the original, and on the last post. As it was clearing a closed business, I'm pretty sure it''s all sold or disposed of after a year.
  10. I poked around their site a bit, and if they're still selling the roller machine for $400, and embossing rols for $25 (with first order), that's certainly a bargain. They apparently are no longer on ebay (at least there's no listings, and no store name for duckcreektraders) so I kind of wondered if they were still in business, or if the machine was still available. Their site says it's custom made to order. Thanks for the tip and the reminder. Still wondering if I could get away with half the price using the el cheapo rolling mill, but I'd guess I could recoup the cost by selling about a dozen belts or so.
  11. The guy who was making $200 belt rollers never came back, so I went trolling through the interwebs to see if there were any alternatives to the $600-900 manual belt rollers. These are designed for jewelry making, and apparently adjust from 0.03 to 6.5 mm between the rollers. They sell patterned rollers, so they're clearly interchangeable. I wonder if one of these could be modified (by someone more skilled than I am) to accept standard belt embossing rollers. These are on ebay for well under $200, or at jewelry-making equipment suppliers for up to lots more than $200. The concept is the same - so what do y'all think? Could this work? https://www.ebay.com/itm/153907704169
  12. Force play? Looks like the catcher has his foot on the plate, so out! Otherwise, he's under the tag, and safe. I love this work, by the way - umpired for 13 years, and this brings back fond memories.
  13. Thanks, Wiz. I'm going to pass on this one - I'm looking for a machine to sew with, not to re-sell or tinker with. If someone else wants it, it's on Facebook marketplace in the Ocala FL area.
  14. I'm on the hunt for a good, used, cheap cylinder arm, so I'm spending a lot of time on CL and other online sale sites. This popped up about an hour from me for under $500 - description says it sews well, but I thought I'd throw a phot or two out and see what y'all think. Not sure I want a patcher, as my space is VERY limited, but this almost seems to good to pass up.
