  1. Times are difficult for all of us, so I have decided to extend the introductory sale pricing through the month of May on the Horse Creek Leather Works belt hole alignment/marking system. Regular price $74.95 – introductory price $59.95 including shipping to the lower 48. The system consists of 2 jigs that center and space your holes perfectly and quickly every time. The tip and buckle end jigs both have adjustable stops with the tip end marked at 6 ½”, 7”, 7 ½”, 8”, and 8 ½” from the center hole. The tip end has two versions, one with hole spacing at ¾” on center and 1” on center. Simply place over the belt and slide up to the belt end, close the sides against the belt, mark with the provided marking tool or your punch and you have perfectly spaced and centered holes. We call it the FTM-CTM (faster than measuring-cheaper than machine). You can order by credit card at https://hclw-belt-tool.square.site. They can also be customized at extra cost on a case by case basis. email: butch@horsecreekleatherworks.com phone 828 528 1831 Thank you

    Yeah I agree with you. If the customers want python, that’s what they’re getting. I was thinking of a cheaper alternative.
  4. I have emailed and called them and no response. Do you know if they are still in business?

    They are on Etsy. I’m not sure of eBay. From what I could tell they aren’t misrepresenting the hides, but I’m still a little leery.

    Is this still available?
  8. My experience with the Cobra class 14 splitter... there were a few problems initially, but Steve immediately shipped out what I needed to correct the problem. Great customer service. It doesn't like soft leather but I expected that. I've only used it for veg so far and really haven't used it that much because I'm in the process of moving into another shop. It won't split less than about 2 oz at a time but that shouldn't be a problem. Going from 10 to 2 smaller pieces you can do in 2 passes. for 10 to 6-7 then down to 2. For bigger pieces say about 10 in. wide go from 10 to 8 to 5 then 2. I use mostly veg so my plan is to buy 9-10 only and split it down to whatever I need. I have successfully split down to 1 oz, but that is very iffy. Some will do great and some will get chewed up. Also the harder the leather the more passes you need to make. There's very little if any variance between one side of the piece and the other. When going down to 2-3 oz the trailing edge will sometimes be a little thinner than the rest so you just need to allow an extra inch or so. One of the best purchases I've made. I highly recommend it. I hope this helps.
  9. Turning just before bottoming out helped a little. Tightened bobbin thread helped just a little more but still leaves a loop. Turning a corner is usually ok but turning around to lock the stitches leaves at least a small loop half the time. Could it be a timing issue? I’ve checked the timing as best I know how and it seems ok to me. I have a cobra class 26 and all instructions I’ve seen says to turn your piece immediately after the needle starts up... confusing.
  10. I think I’ve tried that but I’ll try again. thanks
  11. I have an 111 153 that sews pretty good until you do a u turn to lock the stitches down. The bottom thread leaves a loop. The bobbin tension is at max. The knot is perfectly centered. I’m turning it just when the needle starts back up. Any advice?
  12. I can’t drive that long. I have to have a driver or drive one way stay the night and drive back the next (my son sucks sometimes) so I pulled the trigger on it and ordered one for 2650.00 shipped. Will update once I use it a little.
