    COWBOY 3200

    If you don't plan on doing leather of 3/8ths thick, take a look at the techsew I found a used 3650 HD for a very affordable price, and I love it.
  2. Does anyone out there have any experience with this machine? This is the Amazon Link for it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NSVW8DF?ref=em_1p_0_ti&ref_=pe_2313400_409561050

    Thinning Barge

    Thanks to all. I will check my local ace for some MEK. I have used it a lot over the years. 25 years in the military, we used it for almost everything.

    DUH? Sometimes I really do have Write-Only-Memory.

    Thinning Barge

    If I do not have actual Barge thinner, can I use acetone, or mineral spirits to thin it?

    Techsew Woes

    I have the same machine. Any problems I have had have been of my own making. Make sure that you are using the right size needle for the thread you are using. I was using 277 on a holster and was using the 160 needle as listed in the chart I have, and having the same type of problem. Changed to a 200 needle, and the problems went away. Love my machine.
  8. I ended up buying the one that Harbor Freight sells. It works ok for stamping, but not really for die cutting. I found a good deal on a techSew on Craig's list. It looks much the the Co;t in the above picture. It sews really well up to 1/2 inch leather.
  9. Do a subject search, this was brought up before, and there is a place you can get them.

    Help Locating A Holster Swivel

    I am working on the exact holster in the picture. Looked at the web site for Standing Bear's Trading Post could not find that screw/rivet. What do they call it, and where would it be on their site?

    Green giant sporran

    Very nice.

    Have a friend who is Scottish, and wears his kilt often. I thought I would make a sporran for him. It has a couple of problems, but it didn't come out too bad.
  13. I use old newspapers. Have a bunch, and throw away after use. I have yet to get newsprint on my Item.

    Tool Rack

    While not actually leather work, it does figure in. Got tired on storing my tooling tools in the bins attached to my work bench. Was visiting my sister who is really into rubber stamping. She had just got a new tool which requires the stamps to be unmounted. Had a lot of hardwood stamp mounts with no stamp attached. Used those for the rack. A lot cheaper than what you buy.
  15. Thanks for the replies. I would have machine sewn it, but I all ready had the holes punched before I got my machine.
