Pick up would be preferred, It comes with 2 additional needles, Has a small wax pot off a Singer 29, and he does not have a bobbin winder unit. I have seen aftermarket electric ones for sale. Taking best offers,

    Want to buy an attachment for making leather rounds on a Pearson Harness Stitching machine. Please contact me if you have such a device or know of someone who has. Thank you Silverd
  3. Hi I want to order men's belt buckles but the minimum qty is large. I'd like to go 50/50 on an order of 600 men's buckles. ANTIQUE NICKEL. Note, the photos are the brass color. They are $.85 each not inc. shipping from China (I'm guessing no more than $150 for the full order). They fit a 1.5" belt.

  6. A while ago I made a harness for an Akita. It didn't go so smoothly. It broke twice and wasn't the correct dimensions. But, it taught me a lot. 1. Don't skive the turn where any hardware will be.... And 2. It pays to make a mock up in craft foam to test fit it to the dog. This harness is made from 1" wide 9/10 oz European bridle leather in Havana brown from rjf leather. I used mostly .6mm tiger thread to hand stitch it (fit my 8spi irons better) but I ran out and had to use some .8mm which worked well. The back strap was a problem on the last one. So to fix, I made it tripple thickness. All turns are full thickness and not skived or split. Each chape has a stationary and floating keeper. Let me know what you think. I'll try and get pics on the dog (for a husky this time)
  7. Hello, can somebody identify that sewing machine? It looks quite cool and heavy duty but I can't find any information about the producer. Thank you for your help. Regards

    American Straight Needle

    I am looking for a harness foot for my American straight needle, I have several outsole feet, I've been to pilgrim, landis and Gateway machine, all with no luck so if anybody has one or knows where some are please let me know.. Thank you
  9. Whipped out this handy little sheath for my Bahco Laplander folding saw. Leather is 5oz. Wickett & Craig Buck Brown Harness for the pouch, and 12oz. Buck Brown Harness for the belt loop. Saddle stitched and brass easy set rivets for added strength. Cheers, -Matt
  10. Hello. Is there any good instructions on how to make breechings available? I know haslucks book, but it's a bit odd. I plan to make the 4" wide in 5mm leather (sorry for two measurement systems in the same sentence). And I defo want a big sturdy Dee in the end, not weird hooks as hasluck talks about. It's for a working draft horse (18.2 HH) so it's a bit on the big side. Suggestions, experience, ideas? Just shoot.
  11. Hello, everyone! I am so glad I have found this place as everything I did in the past, was done "testing" and looking up tutorials that do not exist. I started doing some leather harnesses and accessories, and I need to cut thin strips of leather. I used scissors to begin, and then I bought a professional cutter, but the trick with the cutter is that when I have to cut long strips, the cutter tends to "slip" and if that happens the whole stripe is lost. What are your suggestions for properly cutting leather? Thank you!

    Dog Harness

    Just wondering if anyone out there would have a pattern for a Dog Harness, with & without a chest plate. I have never made one even though they look easy enough to make, I dont want to stuff up along the way as it is for a customer. This is the dog it will be going on. Cheers Damien
  13. What are the differences between these three kinds of leather? I make personal objects like wallets and bags, and until discovering Latigo I just went to Tandy to pick out hides that seem to best suit my needs. While researching my last order with Hide House this question began to nag me, and the thought occurred to me that I should order some of the bridle and harness hides they sell just to see what they are like. But that's a lot of money for R&D if I can't use the hide. Another question: is the California latigo they sell at Hide House different from other latigo? I'm grateful for any insight the brain trust here can give me.

  15. I was reading up on Vachetta leather, but there was very little information on it online other than generic information that applies to all veg tanned leather. Does anyone have any experience with European Vachetta or can any of you shed light on the differences between this and other types? Thanks. Also- I'm mostly interested in it for belts.
  16. Hi everyone - I've read completely through the guide to choosing a sewing machine, and have it narrowed down to the consew 206RB and the Juki 1541s, and now I'm stuck. They are both around the same price (although I found a dealer in Dallas who has a Juki clone called a Typical GC0605A for about $300 less). I make fashion style body harnesses, corsets, belts, and some garments. So far I've been sewing on a Janome MC6600, which does ok most of the time with very light leather, but gives up over thicker seams and occasionally just decides it doesn't want to sew something that its been working on all day with no problem. I generally don't sew anything more than single 5-8oz pieces or multiple pieces around 10 ounces total, and I figure if I really need to, then I can hand stitch pieces heavier than that. For the heavy pieces its usually not being attached to anything, but is decorative edge stitching. Which machine do you think sounds more appropriate? I would be upgrading to the servo motor for either. Thanks so much for any advice.

    Pearson No6 harness machine

    My new machine! I'm pretty sure it's a 'Pearson No.6 Harness machine'. There's what I presume is a serial or model number stamped on the top which reads 4949, if that means anything to anyone. It seems to be running relatively well, although I need to get some proper thread for it and fine tune the tension. Also, purely cosmetically it could do with a little bit of attention, I might touch up the gold lettering on the top wheel, and maybe even paint it black one day, but we'll see. Anyway, all in all I'm rather pleased.
  18. Hi Everyone. I am new here, and have been working with leather for probably 20-years or more--mostly just using cowboy gear. My wife does carving and I do custom saddles and stamping. We are moving from Texas and have an almost new Sew Line GA5 head, table, 1725 clutch motor and bobbin winder all assembled and ready to go to work--asking $850.00 and used it maybe 10-times. We keep it oiled and in top shape--it is literally like new. We'd like to sell it as assembled and we live in Sealy, Texas--about 20-minutes west of Katy and 40-minutes west of the southern edge of Houston. This is a great machine with a huge shuttle hook, sharp adjustable height walking dogs that won't mar your tooling leather projects and we sewed up to 3/4" of heavy skirting with it and it did a superior job. I have lots of pictures if you are interested. My email is mikesuemoore@outlook.com and we are moving out of state in a couple weeks and would really like to see this very nice set up, go to someone who can use it. We bought it for our own tack needs and never did commercial work with it, which is why we only used it a few times. We ended up buying a huge upright stand up machine because it goes through about 1 1/4" of skirting which we needed for our saddle skirts--glued sheep's lining made for a bit much for this GA5. So it has never been abused or improperly used. You can also call me if you want and I'd be happy to answer any/all questions you may have. I am an ex-ranch cowboy, educated corrective Farrier and all around pain in the ass, but I am mellowing out with age and so my wife was the only woman to tame me--this is her machine. She does all the stitching. 979-885-7187 This is listed on Craig's List and we will sell to the first serious buyer--we can only help you load it because we are short on time--moving in a couple weeks. Thanks guys.
  19. How do I achieve a light oil finish on my tack? I love the way it looks but have never been able to find a dye light enough to achieve the look I want. Any step by step pointers would be fantastic! I am also trying to find a place to buy thick leather to make 1 ply headstalls, breastcollars, etc. I have some light saddle skirting but it is just too thin and I have to make them two ply. Any suggestions on where to find good leather for this would be great. Of course as I am just starting out making tack, the smaller pieces I can find that still work are usually the cheapest so the better Thanks in advance! CW
  20. ASC #9 will sew 3oz up to 3/4 inch thick. asking $1900 OBO Singer 29k72 patch machine $700 OBO Both machines work fine. I am selling to buy a new flatbed walking foot foot machine, or would consider trades. email me @ twistedhleather@gmail.com

    Dog Harness Template

    Does anyone have a template for a dog harness? I just need a template with the calculations for adjusting sizes. I would like a normal harness for going on a walk no special uses. Yes I have tried looking at a normal harnesses and getting the measurements. I just wasn't happy with the outcome and don't know how to figure out sizing for other dogs. I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

    Used No. 9 Luberto Harness Stitcher. This machine is in working order with no problems. It has been maintained properly. It comes with an operator's manual, needles, spool of thread, three bobbins, stand, motor, thread stand, stirrup plate, flat plate, thread snips and oil can.

  23. Had a slow week a while back and decided; what the heck, my old paintball vest needed to be retired. Not having the money to buy one of those fancy deals all the young players are wearing, I decided to go old school and make a full leather harness for my Tippmann's Remote Line Setup. Here is the result. The rig is Western Steampunk style with Zombie Hunter motif. Features a large back piece with pouch for a 20 OZ CO2 tank. Hand tooled Zombie Hand on the pouch. Back piece is connected by four brass rings to the rest of the rig. Front of the rig has a small shield piece with hand tooled zombie skull. Underneath the shield is a large brass ring which bears the weight of the shoulder and side straps. Belt is made with an old saddle cinch and buckle. Rig is connected to belt with two dual brass tack rings on side. No attachment on front or back of belt to allow maximum movement on the field. Left shoulder piece features the lettering "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi chi'intrate" which is the line from the 3rd Canto of Dante's Inferno which translates as "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here". Right shoulder features the Latin phrase, "non omnis moriar" which in English translates as, "Not all of me shall die". While the philosopher was doubtlessly talking about the immortality of a man's soul, for the zombie hunter, the phrase takes on a slightly darker meaning. The entire rig is coated with a layer of silicone and mink oil to resist the staining effect of paintballs. And to answer the obvious questions: Yes I did take this out on the field, yes it works and yes I have the welts to prove it.

    Hi again! Before I buy the wrong leather or something that is not appropriate I thought I would ask the experts. I want to add some harness belts to my shop that look sort of like this... http://www.freepeople.com/whats-new/leather-harness-belt/ http://gabrieladelavega.bigcartel.com/product/gary-graham-harness-belt What kind of leather should I buy? I was going to buy a 5 oz vegetable tanned calf side from water house leathers. I have a swatch of it and it feels like it wouldn't stretch. Also for a belt that needs to be a little more pliable to fit around the body like this one....what kind of leather? I make bags so belts are new to me and I don't want to spend a ton of money on the wrong leather! Thanks so much for everyones input... I love this site and wish I would have found it before I spent money experimenting because I didn't know who to ask!! http://pinterest.com/pin/111041947034488711/ Crystal www.locknkeyleathers.etsy.com
