    Thanks for the compliment AndyNext . It took me a while to work out and make the patterns but got it sorted in the end . I have now got a set of paper patterns for my cartridge bags so if you need to pick my brains on how the bags are made . I’m no expert but ill try to help you out . Ok

    Hi I made the underside of the seat in 2mm steel plate using a paper pattern I made and cut out . Welded in bolts and then riveted a piece of 2mm thick leather about 50mm wide around the underside of the steel plate and then glued on about 30mm thick hard foam. I carved the design on the leather that was cut out roughly the size +about 3” bigger of the seat then wetted the leather stretched it and bulldog clipped it around the edge of the seat . Waited for it to dry then glued it on. stitched round the edge and trimmed of the excess. Slicked the edge and dyed it and whala you have a seat . Hope this helps you if you decide to make one. I’ll try and put on a underside photo of the seat later . Ok Ps when making your carving design just draw one side of it then trace it . Turn the tracing paper over and trace the other half . Photocopy the complete tracing paper design and wala you have your design ready to go.. I have put on another seat I made with a different design on it . Ok I’ll stop boring you now . Ha ha

    Custom motorcycle seats and shotgun cartridge bags just do my leather work as a hobby in my spare time

    Hi I went to their showroom and went to their warehouse to pick up my machine . Nice people to deal with. I have found the 3200 will stitch a lot thicker leather and can use a lot heavier threads than the old singer 45k . It never misses a stitch and has the advantage of the walking foot design . Ha ha I should be a sales rep for them .

    Hi that’s where I got my 3200 machine . They were Very helpful they also got me all the attachments for it too . I owned a Tippmann boss i found it ok but very temperamental so it had to go then I got a windham cub sent in from the USA .and had problems with the cam and timing on it . So that went as well . Now got the singer 45k . A lovely reliable machine but have now upgraded to the cowboy 3200 machine . So my old singer 45k will probably be up for sale now .

    There’s not much in it. both machines mark the leather a bit depending on what foot attachment is fitted . And must admit hand operating machines keeps you Fit . But I only use them occasionally as it’s one of my hobbies . Very stress reliving Ho and good excise .
