  1. Some say red meat is bad for you... NOT SO, green fuzzy meat is bad for you!
  2. You can fold a piece of paper in half, draw one side of the curve, cut it and unfold the paper. That will give you a pattern.
  3. ...lots of experts out there...! Be careful on what you are sure of. Leggins, batwings, shotguns, and chinks are all chaps and have been made & used by what kind the cattledude wanted. Any and all of the chaps in the above photos could have been used by cowboys, therefor they all could be working chaps, if they worked in them...
  4. I cut my buckle end 7" and 11" on the other billet. Add 1" if the belt is over 40". Not science, just the way I do it. Good luck!
  5. Turning it inside out would hide the seam and the machine issue...
  6. + 1 for Barry King, I use them on my saddles. Very nice imprint and easier to run than the cheap stamps.
  7. Cut it close and sand to shape...
  8. If you can't fix it with baling wire or duct tape, you have an electrical problem...
  9. Does anyone know who made the 2021 Champion Saddles for the Frontier Days Rodeo?
  10. This is just my opinion and we all know what that is worth... I want my breast collar tugs attached almost as stout as a rigging D. When (if) you rope a 1500 # cow, your breast collar can take a lot of strain! It happens in the mountains as well when you are riding up a steep hill. I want all parts of my saddle cowboy strong, you never know where it might wind up. I don't think a latigo hanger would hold up.
  11. You might check with Bruce Johnson. He has vintage learher tools and is a good guy to do business with, honest and good service.
  12. I use the B King and like it. To me, the most important thing with any knife is to have a sharp, polished blade...
  13. The ring is for your tie strings, I carry mine doubled over the back belt and the tails go thru the ring to keep them handy and out of your way. Tie strings are used to tie a cow or calf after roping them for doctoring... or what ever you need to hold one down for. At least that's how I utilize the ring...!
  14. ...if you were closer, I'd take you out calling! I've only shot four this week...
