  1. Hello all, I thought I would share some quick photos of Santa Fe Opera stove pipe cowboy boots W8D made by the misses Jes Marquez. Heels, welts and soles remain. This is her 15th pair under journeyman status. Sadly, due to the pandemic, the original client will not be able to take possession nor complete the sale. So we have to find a new client. Upside is W8D will fit a wider section but downside is opera is kind of niche. It was thought out as tongue in cheek to say Nashville type boots. We are considering approaching the SFO but may give it a go on eBay and see what happens. Thanks for looking.

  4. Hello all, Just heard that noted custom cowboy boot maker Deana McGuffin is selling her shop equipment as a whole and the house property as well. No parting out at this time. Lock, stock and barrel. She said she is ready for a new chapter in her life. The big stuff has been well maintained. The house is very nice with a rear rental. This is in the South Valley of Abq. With her permission I am posting this here on LW. More real eyeballs here that can actually pull the trigger on a massive acquisition like this. Even if that pool seems to be shrinking. Thanks.
  5. Duly noted. I might have done that. Ugh. Ok. Stitch length seems to be holding well. Thank you for the chime in.
  6. Working on single panel tall uppers stove pipe in goat leather for the colors. Newly acquired 29 with 360 head for this task. Previous teeth were worn and not moving the leather. New teeth put in. Moves the leather fine now. But really sharp and scuffs the leather on the turn for zig zag pattern up the back securing the ends together. As suggested here tried 400 grit sandpaper on shaved down original foot. Paper feats too fast. 40 grit still a bit tough. Working in between towards 80, fingers crossed. Open to other ideas and suggestions. Working within a budget and what’s on hand in rural area. Thank you.
  7. Same question And problem here, 29k eating up, scuffing and leaving marks on goat skin leather on the turn. Interested in a solution. Thank you.
