    DuckDuckGo
  1. Yes, I looked into that one. I wish they had it available specifically for smaller sizes rather than a two inch “universal” which doesn’t really work for much other than a two inch.
  2. For belt strap ends, English point and round are the two most common. I have looked pretty diligently and found there is very little variety other than that. Does anyone have tips on how to make other kinds of belt ends in a quick manner. Or, does anyone know of where I can buy a punch for other styles other than English point and round?
  3. high quality latigo leather 9/10 oz NOT ebay NOT etsy NOT amazon (putting this in a search engine works great)
  4. Post American (USA) veg tan & latigo suppliers here
  5. I have looked at WC latigo. I like it except for the limited colors available. I am not tooling it. So mainly dress and some casual belts. I have examined the “big name” brands of leather, but I know there’s way more than just those. @mike02130 Thanks for the link. I have tried most of them in swatches (I may get some straps to test it out more fully)
  6. From what tannery? (Unless that’s a trade secret ) I have tried some English bridle, but I haven’t found one with a smooth or soft flesh. They’re all kinda half finished/half strings.
  7. I’m getting ready to start making belts. I have looked at numerous leathers still have not found exactly what I’m looking for. Money is not as much of a concern as quality. I want a single ply belt in the 9 ounce range that is super smooth on the back, scratch resistant, and won’t crack when bent. What leather do you use? I tried splenda BOM leather; it was everything I wanted except for the fact that it cracked when bent. I feel like there has to be something that meets these qualities.
