  1. I disagree; DLS is great for the hobbyist who want to try different leather for smaller projects. The quality is the leather is more important than the lack of consistent stock imo. RML is also good though.
  2. Wow That's lot of orders to keep track of! Thanks, I'll give them a look.
  3. Would you be willing to share the name of the competitor?
  4. Fair enough, lol! Some thing like business generally stays pretty stable, but there are more plastic aspects about it as well, i.e. the amount of supply vs. amount of demand. The issue I have with buying in bulk is space. I am going to graduate from college in just over a week and space/money is something I don't have a lot of right now, so for me it would be more wise to refrain from purchasing anything rather than buy in bulk to decrease the effect of high postage costs. And that's what I did -- I refrained from purchasing the buckle. I wanted the buckle for a watchband I will be making for my uncles watch (it had a metal bracelet but the clasp broke, so he commissioned me ), but it looks like I may have to wait, or commission my brother to make me a buckle... hmmm, *ideas forming beep boop beep* Again, thanks all for the input, most appreciated. Benny
  5. LoL, I didn't think of that. Personally, I would prefer to pay a bit more for the product than 6x the amount of the item in shipping charges, but that's personal preference. Thanks for the insight and context, I appreciate it. I meant no offence, business is not something I am at all knowledgeable about. Benny.
  6. So I was looking to get a watch buckle from this vendor, and prices weren't bad...until I looked at shipping. $7.50 shipping for a $0.56 item?! Outrageous! I can understand maybe $0.25 for postage, but $7.50?! Has anyone else noticed the higher-than-average shipping? Note that I have not ordered anything from here yet. Does anyone have better alternatives to buckleguy.com concerning small purchases with smaller shipping charges? Thanks in advance! Benny
  7. Cool! I've only sold one piece, underpriced at that, but I've given several key fobs to family too.
  8. Ha why didn't I think of that? Lol
  9. Where would one find a conveyor belt installation company?
  10. Does anyone here have experience in the Avon, Ohio area concerning granite companies?
  11. Have a look at District Leather Supply, they have quite the selection, and it changes fairly often. They have some tools and hardware as well, but the leather is generally in small sizes (4x18, 8x18 inches and some 12x24 inches), with a few whole hides. I am only a hobbyist so I only need the small pieces and have yet to try straight veg tan other than Conceria Walpier Buttero at 3.5-4 oz., which is a dream to burnish and cut.
  12. I have checked them out several times online, and though it would definitely be easier and simpler, I want to make my own head/round knife eventually, probably from an old circular saw blade without the carbide teeth. That project probably won't start for another year though.
  13. Thank you! Good luck in college, and don't let it drag you down!
