    Barge cement

    What is a good alternative to Barge cement. I've used Barge for the past 13-14 years with good results. In the past 5-6 months i've had to reglue, something like 60% of our leather straps. I think the texture (thickness) is fine. And it's mixed well. It's just not setting up as I think it should. What's a good alternative ?
  5. I have a total of 256 Chrome plated Craftool USA - new There is a wide range of designs & sizes. Perfect for a wide range of projects. All are new but have been setting in the shop for a couple of years. Also 3 tool caddies for the punches. $200 for the set. Also. I have 23 "stamping sets" including: alphabet, numbers and pictorial sets (If interested in any of the sets, give me a call and we can discuss). 678/520-2695 Pic's and model numbers on request. I tried to download these but the file is too large. I'm afraid technology has passed me by. (No Subject).eml

    V gouge tool

    DaveP, did you ever fine a V gouge tool ? I've got a couple in the shop. I'll send you one, if you still need it.
  7. Mark842: @Mark842 If you see this post , could you give me a call (678/520-2695). JIm Weaver gave me 3 contacts to day to call to verify the reliability of the punch. I got 2 out of the 3 and both said they have had problems with the machine. I don't want to send it back but since you have not had any problems with the reliability of the machine I thought you might give me some pointers, adjustments, ect. Jim was totally surprised at the report I gave him . And we are both working together to fix the problems. Any help you could give us would be appreciated.l Thanks so much. Al
  8. No it's not doing what it's advertised to do. Jim Weaver made a couple of suggestions but everything seems to be tight. It will perform great and all of a sudden it will punch the first hole (of seven in a belt strap) at 1" and then punch a couple of holes at 7/8": while the setting is 3/4. It's not off by much but just enough to screw up the project. I'm going to give it another week and if we cannot find a fix - I'll just return it. I hate to do that , I like the machine and we really can use it but it has to be reliable. I would like to talk to someone who has the machine to make certain I'm not doing something wrong. Maybe, Jim can turn me on to someone. Anyway guys thanks for all the help.
  9. I'll call Jim Weaver again and see if there is a locking screw. Thanks all for your help.
  10. Mark842: Could I be doing something wrong. I like the punch but I do need reliability.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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..
