  1. i looked last night and i'm sorry but i do not have this craftaid.
  2. i may have that one. let me look when i get home.
  3. pretty sure this is what you want https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09N17M81S/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 i bought some to make a "doctor's bag" for my wife. good luck
  4. when i re-did my seat in veg tan, it was recommended to use 4-5oz for the top and 2-3 for the side. i found 2-3 got really brittle after dying but looking at your seat that won't be an issue. also, i found that the dyed veg tan will fade quite quickly in the sun. i am currently working on a way to keep dyed color but vinegaroon or iron oxide black appears stable good luck
  5. i have recently tried to use a couple of different top coats with UV blockers. the experiment is on going but the results looks promising.
  6. was this veg tan that you dyed? I have had very bad luck keeping the dye color, green and black, in my motorcycle seats. i've tried several different top coats with no luck. what did you use as a top coat?
  7. there is also this type: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09N17M81S/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 they stay open when you release and close when you give them a bit of pressure. great for dog treat pouches or purses
  8. That's a good point. I initially poured some shene into a cup. So. I guess i could have had separated.
  9. I was finishing off a new motorcycle seat yesterday. I assembled the seat before my final top coat. I finished the top of the seat with 10 coats of Eco-flow gloss super shene. When I went to add the super shene to the sides of the seat, i thought it would be easier to use my airbrush. I did 10 coats with the airbrush, undiluted super shene, at ~25psi. the top coat went on fine but it has a matt finish even through i used the same gloss super shene. Does anyone know why this happened? thanks.
  10. looks really good!! A+. what are you using for a top coat for the veg tan leather? resolene? Tan Kote?
  11. just a quick pic of my latest work. i attached it to the outside of my left saddlebag.
  12. send a sacrificial piece of thread about a foot long on a needle through the holes and then throw it away. now stitch up and hopefully have cleaner thread holding the project together.
  13. I am sharpening a new 37mm Japanese skiving knife and I was wondering if I should put a camber on the edges of the blade. For those of you who do not know, a camber is a slight rounding at both ends, right and left, of the blade's cutting surface so that the blade's edges do not "dig in". The majority of the blade remains square to the cut but there is a gentle curve on both of the ends. My thought is that this may make easing into a skive easier. Does anyone have an opinion on this one way or another? thanks.
  14. i just installed a belt clip like you are describing on a dog treat pouch. i riveted it in place but found that the end of the clip kept getting in the way when i wanted to attach the pouch to my belt. i make a quick sheath to go over teh mounted side of the clip, attached to the pouch, and now the clip slides right onto my belt. i am not familiar with the plastic spacer you are describing. perhaps a picture or two would help people understand.
