  3. Thank you sir. Come by and visit sometime. Coffee pots always on
  4. Here's a example of some of the smaller dies I have made with the Helmold bender. the three oval ones are for buckle tongue cutout for belts and straps. They could be used as is or welded inside of a strap billet die. The second picture shows the Helmold binder versatility making the oval dies. I also have made 1/16 of an inch to 1/2 inch punch tubes and weld them inside of a belt tip die for the tongue holes in belts holes and various other things. Here's a picture of the layout table with the steel rule bender jigs also. And a Knife die set from some of my plunder , and a sheath sample that was made from the dies. Leather work fun with all aspects of leatherwork. Have a great evening leatherwork brothers and sisters!
  5. Not bad for a copy. And to quote your response to a previous post "I really like using darker handles and straps out of bridle to create a two-tone effect for my bags" don't see any darker handles here. Looks OK though.

  7. I don't make everything the same color. I make things of all colors of leather and I also use exotic animal skins such as python, rattlesnake, cobra water lizard and others. I just wanted to share some fun about folders and this single color was what I had available to post a picture of. I also make items out of cordura and canvas. And I also incorporate hot stamping of different colors. How about you show us some of your work so we can see what you're all about.
  8. I know what you mean hand stitched. But you can put a folder on just about any sewing machine. They work well on flatbeds and cylinder beds too. Youcan make your own or buy one on eBay they’re listed by the hundreds. I make mine out of THIN aluminum sheet metal I buy at Lowe’s. I make the folder first, then I make the mounting bracket to fit the machine. Then epoxy the folder on the bracket in the right position While it’s on the machine. Put a piece of leather heavier to what you’re gonna use in the sheet-metal and then just fold the sheet melt to fit the leather. Give it a try. You can make a pretty good folder for under 10 bucks.
  9. Yup it's cool and a lot of fun jrdunn. I make all of my tools, jigs, and sewing machine attachments.I encourage everybody to try to think outside the box and don't just buy something to do your leather work with. even the smallest handmade tool could turn out to be the best.
  10. They overlap each other 1 inch, and that is adjustable here's a picture of the backside
  11. You betcha Chuck. I have sold about 42 carry bags. Some leather ,some Cordura, some canvas. Works equally well on all types of material. The invention came out of necessity, which was a way to make the Carrie strap Match the bag material exactly. Works great for rifle slings t IMG_5857.heic
  12. I enjoy making all of my own tools, jigs, and sewing machine attachments. Especially the ones where I have been told that "its not possible".Heh heh. Here's a couple pics of one of the folders I made for my two needle post bed. It's to make bag strap's out of the same material the bags are made of, so the leather matches. Friends, you can do anything you put your mind to with enough patience and perseverance. Bag strap.HEIC
  13. Earlier in discussion I showed some helmold dies and here's another one is it uses I found for the device. This is a sample of cutters for the slot for the buckle tongue to go through. Can be used for anything including belts straps and other related items.Oval cutter 1.HEIC Oval cutters 3.HEIC
