    Finally did a belt.

    Mutt I am as well. Don’t get me wrong traditional tooled belts that stay in the border are wonderful but they also look very framed to me. I think moving in and out of the border helps with the personality of the piece your working on each one will have its own unique feel.

    Thank you. No I started with the tooling when I first got into leather last year. And try and challenge my self more and more with each new project. The thing I’m trying to iron out is the flow of the design when drawing my artwork. It’s getting better the more I do. So I guess like most things practice is key. I’m definitely looking forward to more tooled belts.

    So this is my first Tooled belt I was very happy with how it turned out. 8oz w&c with a 4oz liner. Machine stitched. My hats off to those that hand stitch belts. I don’t know if it’s just me but there seems to be quite a learning curve with carving and tooling w&c compared to other veg tan leathers.

    Is there a way to change your screen name or do I have to register a new account if I want a new screen name.
  6. Well it’s not my revolver. I just built the holster. I don’t know the specifics of that firearm. As long as the holster does it’s intended purpose safely that’s all that matters to me. I can build you one for your ruger or S&W.
  7. If you look at the second picture you can see how it’s attached to the back of the holster. It’s sewn on before the liner is glued. The wing as you have now dubbed it really makes a huge difference in how the holster feels and hugs your torso. It gives you a lot more freedom in movement compared to a rigid attachment point on the holster.
  8. So my latest custom holster is by far one of my favorites. All veg tan holster is 6-7 oz wit 1-2 oz liner. Padded suede inlays on shoulder strap and rear yoke. With an adjustable cobra style buckle. All machine stitched on a cobra class 4. My new best friend. The most challenging part of the whole process was finding a mold gun for the holster. They don’t exist for that model. Had to work with a custom 3D printer adnfd then cross reference those cad files to the actual firearm to make sure everything was correct.

    Good things come to those that wait

    No I’m in Texas. And you should have taken that deal if it was in good shape. That’s about the lowest I’ve seen for a cylinder arm machine.
  10. So I’ve been searching for a machine to help speed things up with projects I have going on. And also allow me to tackle bigger projects I’ve been putting off due to the amount of time it would have taken to hand stitch. Almost bought a cowboy 3200 a few weeks ago but held off thinking something might show up locally. Well it did. I found a new never used cobra class 4 with all the extras a few miles away. Guy said make an offer I told him I had $2000 and he said come get it. It’s now in its new home and works like a champ. Has to be one of the best deals I’ve ever come across at least to my benefit.

    Who’s got the best deal cb3200

    Ok thanks guy I guess I will hold out a little bit longer. And see if anything pops up locally. By chance does any know some one near Houston about to get out of the business
  12. Well it is big for sure but that’s what they wanted. It’s a little on the heavy side but it’s built to last. And as for the buckle that looks upside down if you turn it around the other way it tries to undue it’s self.
