I have been asked many times to produce a DVD of the skills I use and teach here in the workshop. It is a very good idea, but given the audience I reach is global, the shipping will often cost more than the DVD. Also, it would mean multiple DVD's to get all the skills in. So... I settled on an online tutorial channel on Vimeo, in the long run you will get far more from it. It is still at the early stages but videos are being added frequently, at a rate of 4 a month. The cost is £2:99 a month irrelevant of the quantity of videos on the channel, whether it be 25 or 250, it will always be £2:99. I have a current working list of videos to make of 124, this grows as people ask for specific techniques to be shown. The idea is to look at each technique as a standalone practice piece to be brought together when attempting a project. Up until now, I have shown you how to work through a project whilst not paying enough attention to the specific skills used. This should help with that. Enjoy Nigel Armitage
Hey Everybody ! I;ve been using these two clicker knifes for about two years now. I am just wondering do they stop working after a time ? When i am changing blades now , i can't seem to get the new blade to fasten into the knife handle anymore. Is this a common problem and do i just need new ones or am i doing something wrong ? Any/ all advice welcome ! Thanks, S
I know this is a very basic question but I have always used double shoulders which came pretty square. I am now using more sides. Is there an easy, dependable and accurate way to square up the edges on a new hide.
I have a 60" straight edge that's NOT from Harbor Freight. It's well made and painted yellow. I have just switched over to drum dyed veg tan for production and the grain and flesh sides are pretty smooth. When I make full length cuts I ennevitbly shift the straight edge. This happens on either flesh or grain side. Any suggestions for making the ruler more non slip? It can't be too thick or it would interfere with the cutting. Some kind of self adhesive non slip sounds like the best route. Anyone have any experience or suggestions? Thanks! Bob
