  1. You can buy lead weights on Amazon. Five pounds for $19. https://smile.amazon.com/Arrow-Weights-Uncoated-Weight-perfect/dp/B001OAIQ4C/ref=sr_1_19?keywords=diving%2Bweights&qid=1642187785&sprefix=diving%2Bweight%2Caps%2C123&sr=8-19&th=1&psc=1
  2. I use Fusion 360. Education to Inspire on YouTube demonstrates how to use it to create different leather patterns.
  3. Vinymo thread is twisted. What I do is to give it a little back twist to open the thread and then pierce it just like you do with the Ritza thread.
  4. I use an old claw hammer I had lying around. I used a random orbital sander to polish the face so it would not leave marks on the leather.
  5. Back in August, Montana Leather sent an email announcing cowhide leather sides for $60. Today, I received their Black Friday sale email listing the same sides at $65. Be careful out there.
  6. I have never heard of this. Please post some pictures so we can see how it looks.
  7. Don't they need some elastic so they can adjust when bending and sitting?
  8. Tube rivets. There is a special tool that splits the end to make it hold. https://www.buckleguy.com/tubular-rivets/

  10. chrisash posted one last year in the Share your CAD files, STLs, etc thread that is nice. He included a lip on the base to catch drips.
  11. While it is not gold, this kit includes a snap with the BSA logo: https://www.scoutshop.org/multitool-sheath-kit-7121.html
  12. I watched the video to understand your problem. Aaron uses a plastic coil zipper that does not have the directional teeth of the metal zipper. That is why his works. You can use the metal zipper by using two halves with the teeth in the same direction. Where the two halves meet could be hidden under the D-ring holder that Aaron shows on a second case at the end of his video. However, as the design of this case allows the pistol to come in contact with the zipper (repeatedly as it bounces around), you would be better off using the plastic coil that won't scratch.
  13. Your second picture shows two problems. The zipper on the right shows the problem that Rocky Aussie pointed out. On the left side the bumps go up while on the right side, the bumps go down. The left zipper shows a different problem. While the bumps on both sides go the same direction, they are backwards with respect to the slider. When holding the slider with the closed side down and the open side up (as shown), the bumps on the chain should be facing up.
  14. if you watch this video and skip to 11:32 Mr. Armitage shows how to stitch right handed.
  15. Buckleguy calls them collar fasteners. Collar fasteners at Buckleguy
