    125 x MIDAS Stamps FOR SALE

    Hi, Just found four books printed for Midas stamps in my collection. MIDAS MAGIC includes 48 Patterns for belt designs in colour complete and also showing in stages how they are best to be stamped on to your belt. The Midas Stamp album shows in 25 pages how many of the stamps connect together as borders, corner designs and radial designs. Midas Leather Carving shows the 9 majors stages of carving a floral design. Ideal for the beginner or instructing your pupils. Leather Carving the easy way shows the basic techniques in carving with 10 pages of various designs. Again ideal for the beginner or instructing your pupils. I shall be including these Books FREE with the MIDAS STAMPS I have for sale above.
  8. Political Party Craftaid no. 4115 An interesting craft aid I've not seen before. I have had it for many years, but of course has not been used as I live in the UK. As you can see from the photograph, the craftaid is slightly warped but I've been able to test it and make a satisfactory impression with a spatula. Would anybody like to make me an offer. I'll leave it up for awhile to give folks a chance to see it. I'll hold on the carriage charge as you may like some of my other craftaids I have for sale. Thanks for reading.

    Looking for help with a nicked V gouge

    Bad Luck - I think your only solution is to regrind the tip and then polish up with a fine stone, emery cloth etc. If you haven't access to a grind stone then check out your nearest auto shop, engineering fabricators etc. If they do a good job offer them a free belt. That may get you further business.
