  1. Great job! Your sewing is very nice. Good design as well.
  2. I use leftover oiltan chap leather. I believe it is better for your horse and sweat doesn't harden it as much as vegtan, keeps the headstall soft longer.
  3. I asked my wife what she wanted for her birthday. She said "a divorce". I told her that I wasn't planning on spending that much....
  4. Some are calling for police departments to be "dismantled". How would our world go if ALL police agencies kept officers off of the streets for 30 days? As stated before, there are bad cops on the streets and they should be weeded out. By and large, police officers hire on to "protect and serve" and most do a very good job of it. It is a high stress job, not many can handle it and I am thankful for those who risk their lives for my safety. If you are anti-cop, present an alternative. If a person stays on the right side of the law, the police will leave you alone. If you are a thug or criminal, your chances of interacting with the police increase and most likely not in a good way. Be a good citizen and you probably wont have to worry about it... If you want to protest peacefully and respectfully, go ahead. If you choose to use protest for an excuse to destroy, burn, loot, and block public access, expect to pay for your transgressions. Arrest and jail SHOULD be what happens to those who break the law, too bad only a handful have to pay for their crimes. Respect for each other, the law, and self seems to be absent from society these days and has been replaced with selfishness. As for me, I'll follow the Golden Rule, treat others as you would want to be treated, works almost every time. Thanks Frodo, just my opinion...
  5. I like the figure 8 style, easy to use and they hang well from your back "D" or buckle around your horses neck if your country isn't brushy. They are easy to make and the only hardware is the buckle.
  6. I have used olive oil instead of NFO for about 3 years. I really like the color I get and it holds up pretty good on tack from saddles to breast collars, both see a lot of abuse in my country. I also melt beeswax in it for tack and holsters, just like everyone else, I don't know what the ratio is.
  7. Good job on the leather and very nice blades....
  8. Frodo... Thanks, brother for the "Wrong side of Heaven"
  9. +1, USA jobs for USA citizens first! We've led the whole world around by the hand long enough, MAN UP world and take care of yourself!
  10. Take a look at Makers Leather Supply, he has what your looking for( if I understand what you want). It's Tyvek under "must have" supplies on their web page. Good folks to deal with.
  11. BNP, Thanks for the history. I'd like to see more of this style come back, there's something special about an old saddle...!
  12. You can use an old belt cut down, a heavy dog collar works, or you could unravel a piece of head rope and do a 3 strand braid. If you want to make a leather one, I'd use a strip of 13/15 skirting about an inch wide and use a good stout buckle, stainless would be my choice, and rivet it on with copper rivets. Give it a good oiling and your good to go. Don't forget to check it once in a while just like your cinch hobble and latigo, a failure could be a bad wreck!
  13. " Help me, Help me!!! The paranoids are after me..." Roses are red, Violets are blue I'm Schizophrenic, and so am I...
  14. Nice work! Is that Porter style, I think that's what they call it...?
