  1. Mount them on a little trailer with a bench seat?
  2. https://leatherworker.net/forum/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=131472 There it all is.
  3. Not sure why all the pages of this won’t link. I copied and pasted a link from a leatherwork.net page. I have the hole pattern printed out if it’s lost. My net skills are slipping.
  4. Vehicles with both metric and SAE fasteners, plus Torx, plus Phillips screws. Have to drag the whole shop under the car to test sizes. As for the T shirt, they usually have the seams closer together in the back of the neck than the front. Thats the only way I can tell without putting it on wrong.
  5. Spring is back in Tennessee and we are ready.
  6. I figured it would make your lever rust. Here is one that would be easy. Just a strip the length of the lever with holes punched and braided on. Big loop lever, standard lever, pistol vs straight grip would vary in length. https://www.amazon.com/Handcrafted-Leather-Lever-Wrap-Action/dp/B0BWTMX59S/ref=asc_df_B0BWTMX59S&mcid=01ae33d3797c3e7b86ffc385894f0f80?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=79920941687458&hvnetw=o&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583520405611133&psc=1
  7. Do you not just take wide lace and wrap it it till you run out of lever?
  8. Cheap leather which looks fine till you finish the project and dye it and a big spot in the center wont take any dye.
  9. I mounted a piece of conduit on the speed control foot treadle to feather the clutch motor. Worked OK, but I needed that hand to guide the leather.
  10. I have my first machine sitting in the back of my shop. It is the same model Lucy Arnaz used in the I Love Lucy episode where she sewed her sleeve into the dress she was making. Bought it for leather. Will sew one thickness, not 2.
  11. Something that may help you out is many industrial sewing machines have a compatible table and motor. You probably can get just another sewing machine (some call it a head) and replace yours on the table and motor you already have. All you do is lift it up, remove the belt, and it pulls off. That could save on both price and shipping for your replacement machine. You may need a speed reducer if it does not have a servo motor for speed control, or replace the motor with a servo motor.
  12. I would not care except I have some bills due. If they don't pick up today I need to go get them out of the mailbox and deliver them after the thaw. Bill payments are taking 8-10 days without weather issues lately to deliver. I ordered a jump drive from Woodcraft that should arrive soon. It has 13 years of digital Woodcraft magazine for $20. Might keep me occupied till the roads clear.
  13. Hey Chuck, How regularly does your US Mail run in bad weather in Wyoming? We had a 4-6 inch snow, a lot here, not much for other areas. Still cold so it can’t melt after about 6 days. Mail is not running at all. I don’t ever remember this happening, and a lot worse snows other places I’ve lived. My uncle was our mailman as a kid, had an old 72 Blazer, nothing stopped him.
  14. Thanks. A little light for my needs I think.
