  1. I'll call Jim Weaver again and see if there is a locking screw. Thanks all for your help.
  2. Mark842: Could I be doing something wrong. I like the punch but I do need reliability.
  3. Can anyone direct me to a company that offers a Rotary punch for leather. We purchased Weavers Rotary punch back in July. Something I've never liked to do is to bad mouth a product. But this is ridiculous. We spent $1800 on this punch. I like it, and we need it but all we are doing is throwing leather away because the punch is not consistent. You set it on 3/4 inch and 3 or 4 holes out of 7 will be correct. The others will be all over the board. I've talked to Jim Weaver (a very nice man) and we returned it so he could have a look at it. It came back with a note saying everything was working properly. Anyway enough is enough and I'll be asking for a refund. And i'll try to find a punch that is reliable. And suggestions would be welcome.
  4. HIDEBRAND, THANKS BUT I THINK FREDK JUST ANSWERED MY QUESTION. I'LL CHECK WITH BLACK RIVER AND SEE IF THEY HAVE A WEBSITE. FREDK, ARE THISE MEASUREMENTS STANDARD OR DO THEY CHANGE DEPENDING ON THE LENGTH OF THE BELT. THANK SO MUCH GUYS. STAY SAFE.
  5. What is the length on the tip and the buckle end before you start the taper? And do these measurements depend on the size of the belt or are they pretty much standard ? Al's out of pocket and we need to make one. Thanks for your help. David
  6. I do have the thinner an use it . I also use the hammer on the edges. We buy the Barge by the gal generally 2 to 3 cases at a time. Therefore it does set and I guess separate. But there is definitely two colors. One is a light brown/sand color and the other is black.. That was what I was talking about. Do you need to mix or stir in equal parts. Because it would be hard to stir in the gallon can. Anyway, Ill keep working with it and thanks guys.
  7. Rhale: mixing the contents is misleading. In a gallon of Barge there is a light color and a dark color of glue. Do these need to be mixed before use ? That would be hard to do in a gal. can and if you had to pour into a larger container to mix - would be alot of trouble..
  8. blue62, thanks for the help. Question: I noticed that there are two different colors of glue in a gallon can. Do you know if these need to be mixed together. I"m assuming one is a hardening agent.
  9. As the title says - my Barge cement is not sticking. I'm brushing on the cement, (evenly), making sure every area is covered. I do this to both straps. I let it dry until it turns color and then put the straps together, making sure the straps are firmly together. Hang them up over night to complete drying. The next day I'm finding the straps are not cemented together. Sometimes it's an 1/8 inch - other times it's 6 or 8 inches is not glued. I know, for a fact. that I covered the entire strap. Am I not mixing it properly out of the can ? I'm lost.
  10. Handstitched: Thanks for the information. Stay safe.

    Dwight; I think you've read my notes.
  13. Can anyone tell me how to sew decorative stitching (sometimes called boot stitch) on a belt. Do you go by a pattern or just free hand. Thanks for your help.
