  1. Whats the best leather to use for motorcycle saddle bags? Chrome tanned or veg tan ? If veg tan is the Herman oak water resistant leather a good choice?<
  2. what kind of top coat can i use on suede ?
  3. im getting ready to make a few notepad holders out of 1-2 ounce leather with bag stiffener in the middle and a layer of cordura inside to line it the bag stiffener is less than a millimeter thick and it is stiff will my econosew 2060e8bld be able to stitch through it? Or should I switch to a firm leather to give the notepad case some rigidity?
  4. i do have a econosew 2060 to do wallets once i get it to quit breaking thread and a Chinese patcher to do belts so the cylinder arm will primarily do sheaths and holsters the class 26 definitely sounds like it will do what i need or a class 3 does anyone have feedback on the cobra machines from tandy?
  5. I recently stumbled upon a landis 16 for sale shipping it to Las Vegas would cost me roughly 700 im assuming this is still a pretty good deal? the seller said the peddles might need to be rewelded but im asking for pictures to see whats going on there. i dont think the seller is very knowledgeable about sewing machines but they said it looks like its all there. should I stear clear of it or take a chance and buy it.
  6. as the title says im looking for a cylinder arm machine for doing knife sheaths and holsters and would prefer to get one with the ability to attach the top to make it like a flat bed for sewing wallets. so far the techsew 2750 pro has stood out to me the most ive also looked at the cobra class 3 and 4 my budget is 3000 any input would be greatly appreciated
  7. ive been searching around but the only description i find is for loose leaf binders wich is a place i commonly see tubular rivets. so is that what this setter is for? or what type of rivets is it for?

  9. I've been making leather wrist cuffs lately and I'm having problems with the straps drying and looking like they're going to crack I'm dying them with feibings pro dye and a dauber usually 2 or 3 coats then as soon as they're dry I'm putting feibings leather lotion on what should I do different
  10. Recently my econosew 2060e8bld had some thread get wrapped around the bobbin case and I didn't notice it till the needle wound up wedged against the edge of the bobbin case and at the time I thought best to get everything unbound by loosening the set screws on it so I could get the needle unbound and get the thread out and now I cant get the needle to not brush against the bobbin case as it comes up any help would be greatly appreciated
  11. I just bought an antique C.S. Osborne draw gauge that needs a new blade. Will the blade for the new 5 1/2" draw guage fit? Its #51-1/2B
  12. I have a chance to buy a white rotary for 50$ on table and it works i dont know the exact model i do know it has a knee bar would this machine be capable of doing a few layers of 2oz veg for making wallets
  13. Kiwican i haven't tried hooking it to my vest or a pack and i didn't plan it to be its a cold steel spetsnaz shovel i love it i wanted one for the longest time and one day one of my friends surprised me with it
