  1. @chuck123wapatithanks a lot for the support. Kind regards.
  2. @Spyrosthat's a magnific idea, and your work is outstanding, I really like it! I also saw the clamp you made and it's completely awesome. Thanks for the support, I really appreciate it. I'll try making the small improvised lathe, I really liked the idea! Kind regards.
  3. Thanks a lot @dikmanI saw your work and it is awesome, I'll buy a lathe some day, seems like brass fittings could be awesome to make and I wonder what else, some awls and things. Kind regards.
  4. This is the last result with the stacked leather, I think I need a more stable tool for sanding the leather, but I'm not looking to sell it, so as long as it comes functional it's OK, the next one will turn out better with this previous experience. Thanks for the support.
  5. Thank you guys, let's try it and see what turns out, I'll post the final results.
  6. I just started the handle you suggest, but since I don't have a way of turning the handle I went into analog mode. It takes longer but will turn out fine... I believe and I hope.
  7. That's nice, it'll turn out good. I tried with a steady hand and kind of got away with it, wish I had a drill press. This wasn't so hard on the poly head, but the handle was something harder to achieve perfectly.
  8. I needed a leather maul for right now because the other one I had didn't make it... So I was wondering how much I could take in time, effectiveness in making a new one in what we call a meanwhile I get another one, and it turned out that for around 4 dollars and at least 15 minutes in the making this turned out fantastic. A 15 Oz. (425grams) mallet. A 1 dollar poly head from scratch with a dealer that used it as a mallet as well but it didn't have a handle anymore, a threaded rod, some washers, acorn nuts, a pressure washer for the bottom and a wooden handle replacement for a garden tool. Amazing what you can do when you are in a hurry.
  9. Thank you a lot.
  10. Thank you very much!
  11. Hello fellow leatherworkers. Recently I've been questioning myself into what is better, to oil before dyeing or after? I've been said that before dyeing so dye gets in nice and even and some tell me it's better after. And what could be the best to get an even dye? I've used sponge, dauber, brush and always seem to get blotches in some areas even if caution is used. Sometimes they look cool but others I feel the piece ends up not to my taste. I'm thinking on airbrushing the dye. Can I get your thoughts on this please? Thank you a lot! Joe.
  12. Thank you George. Regards.

  15. Hello. I have a question. Recently upon diving on ebay I found these tools with what would be for me a regular edge crease that I'm used to on one end and on the other end there is a flat side which is marked a flat edge crease, it looks nice... but my question is: Is it used only for an aesthetic/decorating reason I can imagine for a belt or a watch strap or so, or does it have a functional part such as for sewing or other thing? Thank you for taking your time to answer.
