  3. If you ever split them up I'd be interested in the 3mm set...
  4. That video was great! I'm sure a lot of those tools and molds are really expensive but maybe there are cheaper alternatives? I especially liked the one they used to cut out the buckle end of the strap.
  5. Hoping someone can help me track down a die similar to the one Hermes uses in this video You can see the die at around the 5:40 mark... I've attached a few pics I've been able to find of it as well as a screen capture from the video itself... I've seen watch strap dies but nothing quite like this one... The way they do it, they do all their construction of the strap first... gluing everything together/etc and then they cut it out using the die. It also looks like the die has some sort of guide built in to it so they can line up the piece of leather before cutting as shown in the picture attached. I feel like this is a much cleaner process than cutting and then gluing... anyway, if you know where a die like this can be had, let me know!! Thanks!
  6. Thanks! What are some good resources for sourcing thread in a variety of colors? I might not be looking in the right places since most places I'm looking only have 69 and 138 but no 92.
  7. About to pull the trigger on the class 26 + flatbed conversion and edge guide... Question on thread... Is 69 bonded nylon thread suitable for wallets and small goods or should I look for 92 or 138? SLC seems to only offer 69 and 138... Or is there another type of thread other than bonded nylon that I should look for? Thanks!

    Good point! Better pay the extra $$ and get one from a reputable dealer in the US. Right now I'm between a few different machines... all look similar but the cowboy in particular looks like it has a safety cover over the knife for protection... might be a good thing to have on such a sharp knife!

    I was thinking of getting a Consew.... in particular this one: https://goldstartool.com/consew-dcs-s4-skiving-machine-w-table-and-servo-motor.html I think that's pretty hard to beat with $0.99 shipping right?
  10. Back again! Sorry if it seems like I'm all over the place but I have had a chance to talk to a couple dealers and have been convinced that a medium duty cylinder arm machine with flat bed conversion table is the way to go. That being said my choices are down to 3 options: NEW Cobra Class 26 - From SLC NEW Artisan 2618 - Direct from Artisan Rebuilt Juki LS-341 - from Nickosew (includes leather package - speed reducer, edge guide, table, etc) Was hoping to see if anyone could sway me in any direction on these machines? Right now I'm leaning towards the Cobra Class 26 as it seems to tick all the right boxes for me for being able to sew light to mid weight leathers and has the flexibility to add on table for my flat items and use as cylinder for when I work my way up to bags/etc. As always, thanks in advance to the helpful people of this forum!

    I know you already found a solution but I'd like to add one more... I just recently got one of these to try out and it works surprisingly well and most importantly for you it makes no noise. https://www.etsy.com/listing/615944149/silent-leather-stamp-imprinting-machine?ref=shop_home_active_9 There are other presses like this on the market or you could also just get an arbor press drilled out to fit your punches/irons. I haven't had it long but the work I've done on it so far has been a good experience... very little effort required to get through 4-5 layers of 3/4 oz veg tan and the press ensures you always get a clean straight punch. Just my 2 cents...

    Following this topic... looking to find out the same... so many on the market that all look the same but hard to know what are the functional differences!
  13. Didn't know this was an option but definitely a good idea and something worth looking in to!
  14. Yeah I saw that but it's listed at 3/8" (~9.5mm) whereas BG dies are 7.8mm on the top thread so I'm pretty sure it'd be too big anyway... also at $95 that's pretty much half the price of the Buckleguy press and even then I'm not sure 100% it'd work... sure would be nice if there were some standardization in this space! Either way I'm happy now that I know I can get perfectly set snaps with a press... doing it by hand was just too frustrating!
