  1. THE WORLD'S LONGEST RETIREMENT & SALE; ONGOING I have on offer, patterns, written instructions and personal guidance for 'HOW TO HAND SEW A LEG-O-MUTTON CASE', that I have used for over 35 years of making them. This pattern etc produces the most elegant lines seen on a legomutton case the finest US saddle leather and UK genuine English Bridle. It has proven extremely popular with owners of the highest end double guns and matched pairs, imaginable. These finished cases go for as much as $1500 US. No triflers, tire kickers, please. You must make me an offer. I will leave this offer online until June 15th. Those who have purchased tools I've been selling off will know the quality of my work and may also have an interest in pursuing this offer.
  2. Stephanie, try the Yahoo address. Turns out I forgot how to send or receive private messages. I have two machines and am retiring with a heck of a deal for you...promise
  3. Sure. Send me a private email along with a photo or two of your work.
  4. I have a few options on hand. Can you explain details re your application?
  5. I want to pass on business, specifically a single customer with irregular but constant requirements for high value case work. This is best suited to a younger leather craftsperson with experience under their belt at hand sewing round case work. Immediate order(s) at hand. This comes with ample opportunity for you to expand this particular item to a very large market. No cost to you for the lead. You must be able to prove your skill per above via photo's, etc. The offer may be better suited to someone in NW USA and Canada (I'm located near Calgary) but, open to all per above criteria.
  6. Woolies, have you found a machine? I am retiring (4th try) and have a Mach 1 leather machine (personally have sewn 3 layers of 8/9 oz) and a refurbished table mounted fine tailoring machine that sews like a dream (everything from fine cloth's to canvas and lighter leathers). Taking offers. Meant to add, am east of Calgary a tad.
  7. Send me a private email and I'll introduce you to an alternative frame.
  8. Stumbled across your dated post. I have one, retiring, would discuss if you're still interested.
  9. I'm slowly getting out of the business and would love to pass along PATTERNS, WOOD FORMS for travel bags, legOmutton cases, cartridge bags and know how, including how to PROPERLY...sew butted seams (and never,ever believe it's a piece of cake). It's all done for you. Know head scratching. No tire kickers please! This would fit the future for a craftsperson beyond 35 years of age with an advanced skill set. THe cost? Yes. You need to make me an offer...but I won't break your bank acct.
  10. SALE FINISHED! Thanks to all who participated.

  12. Stumbled upon your first post when looking for direction on advertising my case and bag business (patterns, how to, a host of manuals, hand tools) along with teaching buyer complex case and bag work sporting case and travel oriented. My background includes working under instruction from N. America's best saddler and, one of England's foremost masters during heyday of leathergoods early to late 1900's.
