  1. I have bought a couple of their keychain dies, their zippo pattern and mold, and some of their little earring-looking things to hold punched leather together while I stitch the seam. The dies have cut 6-8 ounce veg tan, ostrich legs, 4 oz oil tan, and everything I've thrown at them (including, once, the side of my thumb). I use them with my harbor freight arbor press, and have also hammered them out with my old rawhide hammer and a wooden mallet. The zippo mold works great with 3-4oz veg tan. The acrylic patterns are way too thin, and many of the stitching holes aren't really round or all the same size - their laser isn't perfectly calibrated. But they work for the patterns and I can mark and punch my own stitch lines. Overall, for a cheap "will I like something like this" they're not a bad option. And they do seem to offer doodads that seem to fill specific niche needs. And having seen that I can use the arbor press as a "clicker" I've bought some high-quality dies for wallets that work about the same, but appear to be MUCH more durable (and able to be sharpened if necessary). The Likolly ones will be done for if they get dull or bent.
  2. The buyer can't submit a claim - the courier hasn't delivered it. Only the shipper can submit a claim for lost or damaged merchandises if it hasn't been accepted by the buyer.
  3. Interested in this - will you ship to Florida?
  4. I did, and shipped them out. Should I mark this as sold?
  5. Thanks! I kinda thought it looked like Aaron's version, but wasn\t sure.
  6. 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.
  7. Is the pattern for that dopp bag available somewhere? Happy to pay the creator.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Y'know, I think I'm eligible for adoption, if you're looking for a low-maintenance addition to your family. Beautiful shop!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
