  1. Yea, I think a small one would be pretty reasonable to make. I actually started to make the blade for one but work got busy so it made more sense to buy at the time. If it'd help, let me know and I can send you some pics or a video for reference when it comes time to build.
  2. I bought a Tandy Craftool Deluxe splitter when it was on discount. It's the 3795-00 I'd say it's okay if it's bought on sale. There isn't any info on the blade steel or heat treat so I have no idea how long it will hold up, but it does the job for now. Even though the blade is quite wide at 5.75" you can probably only get away with 1.5"-ish wide leather on it.
  3. These look amazing! The fam will be moving to Oz in a few years. When I'm there 'll be looking forward to some roo skins!
  4. Good to know the consistency from W&C direct is good. Thanks for the info. Yea, it seems like a lot of suppliers are seriously backed up. Crazy times indeed!
  5. Hopefully it won't happen again! So far the odds haven't been great with this particular supplier but finding a solution does go a long way and they seem to be willing. Tool holding is a great idea, thanks for that!
  6. I actually did contact Matt while trying to solve this. They said they are 30 + days behind on their harness so I'll have to wait to direct order. I found out that they do not have a minimum order which is nice. On another note, the supplier I purchased from is going to send another piece out in the end. It took a bit of back and forth and a few days but it's now resolved.
  7. Thanks! It's an embossed cow hide. I guess this pattern is more on the scale of a smaller reptile but it's also available in a larger gator pattern. I purchased it from OA Leather supply in Canada.
  8. It was Wickett and Craig harness, sold as "1st and 2nd run usable edge to edge." full price. I actually ordered two other quarter sides that were in perfect shape. I contacted the seller but it's been a couple of days and crickets. Good to hear your opinions on the leather's condition. I felt like it was too damaged in too many spots and did contacted the seller. Still waiting to hear back so I thought I'd check in here to see if I was over reacting concerning the usability. I just haven't been buying long enough to fully know what I should expect each time and since this is happened before, I wasn't sure if it was the norm. I'll try a different seller. Thanks for all your experience guys!
  9. I'm working on it. I'm pretty new to buying leather and I'm starting to buy larger quantities so I'm not totally sure what to expect as far as consistency goes, so your feedback is valued. Thanks! I'll check out Hide House and Maverick.
  10. Thanks Gary, what do you think about the condition of the leather based on the pictures? For me something like this is pretty unusable for finished goods....
