Most of my production items are glued, stitched and then wet formed with dozens of different forms. I make a number standardized products customized with the particular form required. Sometimes there is a very tight fit and the edges tend to separate slightly. I generally don't use an edger, just edgepaint and burnish but it hasn't been a critical part of the process. I would like to improve the quality of the edges , especially where there is a small separation along the edge. I would prefer to have some type of filler I can apply and then use a single coat of edge paint rather then multiple coats. After researching I have seen a few possibilities but I am wondering if anyone has a personal favorite that would work as a filler, sand, burnish and then take Edgecote. Thanks! Bob
Greetings all! I'm a newbie and am learning so much from these forums. Thank you to all who contribute. I am currently repairing an old baseball glove with several more in the wings. The current one I'm working on ad some embroidery work on the thumb which I have successfully removed. Before moving on to dying it and reconstructing it to its original state, I'd like to fill those small embroidery holes. The people at Tandy told me to just condition the heck out of it....which I knew wouldn't solve the problem completely. I've seen some repair compounds / leather fillers out there on youtube and the like, but I am wondering if there is a simpler solution that someone has been successful with. I've seen one contributor recommend Magic Mender.....but I guess I'm just hoping that there is something a little more readily available or a hack that works just as well. Thanks in advance for your help!
