  1. The costless may is to use sand paper. Last Friday I did the test with two of my old knives. Since they are dull, I apply sand paper of #120, then #400 and finally #2000. After that, I strap it on leather strap with green stropping compound. I'm satisfied with the result Easily cut 8oz leather.
  2. Just finished a leather notebook cover for my friend. The leather I used is Horween Chromexcel. To crease decoration line, I use FN2 iron tip, and the temperature is 135°C. Wax spatula iron tip is used to smooth the edge and heatable paintings, the temperature is 220°C. To stamp on the cover, I used 150°C.
  3. Good job, it looks great! It always takes a lot of time to find a proper hardware with good quality. I bought 3 hardware kits for Kelly or Birkin from Taobao (a China website), where you may find everything. The quality of the hardware is good to me. It comes up with several tiny rivets, rather than screws, to install the hardware. https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.
  4. I developed a dual-channel electric leather creaser. I'm not sure if I posted it on the correct board.... The creaser can accurately control and display the temperature of iron tips. The maximum power of each channel is 70W, and voltage can be 110v or 220v. If you are interested, please visit my store https://www.etsy.com/listing/691160733 to get more details. It is $398 for double-creaser kit, which incudes dual-channel machine, 2 handles, 5 iron tips and handle rest.
  5. If you need, I can send you the pattern of this wallet
  6. Hi Alain, Sorry for replying late. My leather creaser is $298 for 1 machine + 1 Handle + 5 iron tips +1 Handle rest. If your are interested please visit my store to get more details: https://www.etsy.com/listing/691160733 Please let me know if you have any question on it. Your project looks very nice! And better than mine. It's not easy to get high quality hardware. I got it from China. I'm satisfied with its quality, it looks very good. There are 12 tiny rivets to install the hardware, it's difficult and needs experience. It's my second birkin, but I still screw up one rivet....
  7. Before applying any coat, you have to sand the edge to make it straight. Besides, the leather needs to well glued, or else you will get a glue line.. Edging is time consuming...
  8. What about adding some copper rivets to enhance the strength?
  9. This tool looks very nice!
  10. Richard and all other friends, thank all of you for your understanding. It is frustrating to be called 'lie' for just providing several price options.... Now I've removed other options and only left the beginner set, no misleading any more... : D Just enjoy leathercraft projects!
  11. Thank you Mike, I will take your suggestion!
  12. Different options share the same details dercription, Etsy doesn't provide the function to set different decription. Ebay is a little bit better, it allow seller set dedicated picture for each option. If it does mislead browers, I'm sorry for that but it's not something I want. Regarding to VAT, I did nothing to VAT. I just set a price in USD. Etsy will know where the brower comes from, and changes the currency correspondingly, then maybe some additional fee is added. But it is not me who set the VAT. Actually it's the first time I heard VAT.
