    good snaps (and bad snaps)

    additional research/ testing: amazon "Snap Fasteners 100% Stainless Steel Boat Marine Canvas Upholstery Snaps Cap" from northwest tarp. they are fasnap brand. emailed them for the longer post version. good but not super strong holding amazon "Fasnap Stainless Steel Snap Set, Marine Grade, 80 Piece:" says they're offered by northwest tarp but really they are fulfilled by someone else and they are actually DOT not fasnap these were a stronger hold and more so what I'm looking for. I tested and they work with snap brands, the part that makes them stiffer is the female socket. using the male on other brand female didn't improve strength. so I think technically I could stock up on the female version of the DOT brand and use with whatever other snaps I have.

    foil supplier

    where do you guys get your foil for foil stamping leather? I see some on eBay, some are listed for laser, is that different than a heat press? theres not many options on amazon. not sure how to identify good / bad material.

    cobblers hammer weight

    hey guys looking to get a cobblers hammer to hit the glued pieces together. wondering what a good weight is for that? like 6 oz? 13oz? I've seen some chasing hammers that also have the pien on the other side which might be nice to have for hitting copper rivets (one less hammer to have on the bench). but these are mainly for jewelry so they'er at the 6oz which seems kind of light. If you have any specific hammers you like or where to pick one up happy to hear

    embossing press attach stamp and tray

    thanks I'll try making a jig like that. was thinking maybe magnets too to side against but not sure if they would move.. how do I attach my stamp to it to heat it up though. the instructions say use high temp tape but that seems a little crazy if I'm heating git up to 320* and annoying when I change stamps

    good snaps (and bad snaps)

    how can I look at my snaps and tell if they are bronze or brass? sailrite has pull the dot and I ordered some of those yesterday to see if I like them or not so you're saying the DOT durable will be the best snap ?
