  1. I bought this several years ago and I’m not sure where. It has no markings indicating a Hanson, but there so many versions out there I’ll make no claims. However; it works beautifully to pair and bevel lace. Sadly, arthritis and hand surgeries have limited my abilities to make my own lace much longer. I have resorted to pre-cut roo lace – and it works well. $250 plus shipping via PayPal. I'm in Virginia PM me if interested
  2. Hi. I have been working with the standard Tandyleather lace tool. https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/craftool-lace-maker I am not very satisfied since i feel it´s not very sturdy and i have problems making both thicker or thinner lace than from 2.5 mm thickness. Some time age, i saw a tool made fully in metal. It looked more like a round pen sort of. That tool also seemed to be able to create round lace and not only flat. My question is, do anyone have a tip on where to purchase another better tool? I need it preferably to be possible to bring with me on my travels. It would be superb if it could make both flat and round lace, and of course, easy to replace or sharpen the blades in it.
  3. Hi all, it's been some time since I have posted here. I am currently working on a filigree belt with buckstitcing. The issue I am having is that the white surface is cracking in some of the stitches. Is there any way to prevent this? The lace is several years old so that could be the issue or my slits are still to tight. I waxed the flesh side with paraffin and tried opening both sides of the slit with my fid. I even used much shorter lengths of lace.has anyone ever run into this and if so what did you do to prevent it. Im thinking its because the lace is old and the surface is dried out.
  4. Thinking that I was going to be doing more lacing than I am, I purchased a lace cutter/Beveler, splitter from Mr. Clint Sims last summer. I tracked his email down through a leather forum, as it seems he has an almost cult-like following and you can’t find these little machines for sale anywhere. He has been machining these tools for fifteen years and the one I got is the most recent generation. I HAVE NEVER USED THIS TOOL. I never even set it up and read all the way through the instructions that he emailed me, because my business turned in a different direction and I found myself not needing to make my own lace. All pieces are included, down to the blades that he taped together and his little hand written notes warning me that they are sharp and how to properly mount the tool I paid $310 (can provide all email and receipt documentation). I’d like someone to be able to use it. Selling it for $300 shipped, but also willing to entertain (very reasonable) offers. It’s brand spanking new. Includes all emailed instructions for set up and use from the man himself. Additional photos can be provided per request ( I wasn’t able to upload all of them on here).
  5. Hi! I am newish to braiding leather dog leads, and am looking for leather lace colors other than the typical bronze, pewter, silver and gold that come as stock colors. So question is...how do I go about getting metallic colors (purples, blues, reds, greens, etc) is there a method that is better holding up to wear and tear? The handle would be the biggest wear. Would I use dye? Paint? Do you have a certain brand that is recommended? I braid 4 strand, witha core, if it matters. Laces are 3mm kangaroo leather from packer leather.
  6. Not sure what went wrong with lace work here. It starts out very strait then starts to angle a lot. Never had this issue before. I'm guessing it's the curve of the coaster that's causing my problem.
  7. What kind of lace is used on the holster and lace or stitch name if it has one. Thanks
  8. Hi all, I am very new to leatherworking and have completed about six kits. I am interested in beginning a leather project from scratch. I have a couple of questions when it comes to lacing. When it comes to lacing hole sizes and spacing between holes I was wondering if it mattered much? To be clearer, do all multi-prong hole punches have the same spacing between each prong? How do I know how many SPI I should use for a project? Or is it just personal preference? I've noticed round hole punches and slot punches for lacing are sometimes measured 3/32". Does this mean I have to use lace that is 3/32" inches wide? I apologize for the slew of questions, I'm just having a hard time finding information online about this. I really love working with leather and am excited about moving on from kits. Thank you
  9. Greetings! I'm new here - and I am hoping that someone can take a look at these pics and explain what this is - I have actually done research for more than months - years - but no luck. I know that this is handcut kangaroo lace - at least I have learned something. It has been described as "hand rolled" - as you can see, I hope, the leather is smooth and shiny on one side, sueded on the other - and it looks like it has literally been folded in half in places - and it feels like it might have some oil or wax on it - especially in the areas where knots have been tied. These examples are from jewelry that I have worn for years, so the leather is darker on some pieces. I have found a number of sites that sell 'roo lace, I have read about cutting the lace from a hide, hand stripping it, beveling it - but I cannot find anything about "handrolling" kangaroo lace or any kind of leather lace. I have purchased kangaroo lace - but it does not look or feel like what is in my photos. I know someone experienced with working with leather will be able to take a glance at the pics and know immediately what this is - there is nothing better than experience - and I can guarantee my answer is not in a book or on the internet - thank you for reading - and looking - and I appreciate any and every insight!
  10. Still pretty new to leather working, but ive been doing tons of research, asking alot of questions and going through tandy scrap leather like crazy, done a few little projects as well to practice tooling, dyeing, laceing, etc. So I've got an ok base to start with and wanting to try my first real project. So my question is... lace on a firefighter radio strap, what would be the problem with that, and is it going to hold up?. Ive been searching the internet, and on here and have found no results with a custom radio strap with lace. So im thinking there has to be a reason. Yes i realize that on the strap itself where it sits on your shoulder would be a bit uncomfortable and probably rub bad. But maybe some on the radio holster, and possibly sections of the strap doesn't seem like a bad idea... i saw on tandy they have whats called "logger lace" which meets NFPA standards (basically approved for fire gear) was going to try and use some of that. Lace on strap would be for decorative purpose. (Leaning more on a plate braid rather than edge for strap because i think it would rub less) Lace on holster would be used to for assembly.. Let me know what yal think.. preferably a fellow firefighter that uses them and has some experience with them. But any thoughts are appreciated! Also. Dyeing logger laces and laces of that type of leather. If anyone has tryed that id love to here what the outcome was... i know latigo is pretty much set on what ever color you buy. But idk about the logger lace.. let me know what yal think! I have pictures of my EO'S strap for a referance and im going to photoshop them to try and show some of the ideas i have for it and put them into a pdf to post on here. Look at it and tell me what you think! Thanks for taking the time to read! imgtopdf_generated_2506171206036.pdf
  11. Do you know what this is? Is it complete? If not, can parts be purchased to make it complete? How do you use it? So many questions I know. Thank you for any info you can share.
  12. Hi! I am new to this but I bought some lace at Tandy to see if I would like it and well, I do! I saw a couple few videos YouTube and LOVE it! Ok, except for one thing.....the lacing I got at Tandy is so bad....tore on me and is so stiff. I have no idea how it is finished - veg tanned or chrome, but I am sure many people have tried it here....and it is quite unlike any leather I have used! I have heard a lot about the wonders of kangaroo but not all suppliers are equal, and would I have to prepare the lace if I got it? I have started making purses and notebooks if that helps - so colors are GREAT! My father is a boot maker so I was raised with leather all my life. For the dress boots, of course, chrome tanned - for the colors. Work boots, a different story. He put me in touch with his supplier for piping and welts....And they make cowhide lace in a variety of colors for cheap, however, before I go crazy and order, I would like to see if anyone here has used them? The company is TLT Leather. They have sent me color samples of the leather - and it is chrome tanned - very soft, consistent, and if it is anything like the piping, it should be fairly thin. ANYHOW, just wondering if anyone has used them? Thanks so much!!! Regards, MG
  13. Couldn't find this mentioned elsewhere, so thought I would share this Youtube tutorial by Shane Hutchinson (from Abraided Leather) on making your own lace/thong beveller. I knocked up one quickly with things I already had in the garage (block of wood, wooden paint stirrer, utility knife blade). I found it easy to use, accurate and pleasingly fast. Have attached photos of mine below, used on 3mm Kangaroo lace. NB: Due to the depth of my block of wood rather than clamping the blade I just hammered it into the wood. This does halve the life of the blade (as the hammered side is dulled so you can't turn it over) but worth it for me as I found clamping twisted the blade to a strange angle. I used spare blades from my Stanley utility knife, AU$5.98/5 pack. These are available in Carbide which (allegedy) last 5 times longer than a regular blade. Hope someone finds this useful! Cheers, Kristy
  14. Hello Fellow Leatherworkers! I know there is no substitution for Kangaroo lace, and it's with a heavy heart that as of January 1st of this year, California has once again banned the importing of Kangaroo lace. I've been using Y-Knot Lace for the last six months. They are and have been amazing. But, until my wife and I move to Austin, Texas, I need to get your opinions on what brand and type of lacing is second best to Roo lace. I've used the Premium Calf Lace from Tandy... it's so so and very inconsistent. Lately it has had a real hard, waxy feel to it. Any feedback and help would be greatly appreciated in this time of mourning. The majority of my leather goods incorporate lacing... to say I'm obsessed with lacing would be an understatement. Help me make the most of being a California resident for the time being. Thanks. All the best, Brett C.
  15. Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify and tell me how to do this stitch, trim, lace, I'm not sure of the correct term. I learned this a very long time ago, but can no longer remember how to do it or the name, can anyone help me please? Thank you, Krystyna
  16. Hi folks, I have ordered some kangaroo lace from Amazing Lace in Australia. I have ordered and paid almost 2 weeks ago, and still no reply. I have sent some e-mails and also Facebook message without any response. Thought that maybe someone here knows why or what to do?
  17. Hi guys! I admire the bags, which have this kind of round lace in the stitching between the leather sides, but Im wondering how I pratically do the work. I guess it functions as protection/decoration, but I can't exactly figure out how its done and what the name for this is called I have attached a pic of an example I hope anyone have some knowlegde on this area - no matter what then thanks!! Have a nice weekend:) Frederik
  18. honestly has anyone used the precut lace from Centralia or ebay? i know making my own is best but wondering if anybody has been able to use these...was thinking getting either the 1/4" and splitting it down to a 1/8 string or the 1/2 inch and maybe be able to get 3 1/8 strings....also thought about buying there rounds.... also thought about the 1/2 watter buffalo as they said it is quite thick then i know i could split its thickness down to that of what i need and not worry about it being to thin to split....but idk how it strethes....there is also horse anyone used that lace for buttons? Thanks, Mac
  19. This past weekend I made some raw hide using KAWs method for dehairing(it worked pretty good by the way) thanks for that KAW, any way I am now ready to cut it into strings for several different projects, maybe royal reins, bosal, and buttons and I am curious of others opinion on how to cut the hide. It seems like if I take my strap cutter and cut around the hide I would have very little waste, vs cutting out rounds then cutting string. I have even seen where some just cut the hide in straps length ways. Are certain parts better for certain items, I know when making a saddle, saddle makers like certain parts of the hide for different pieces of the saddle. I'm pretty green to this but seems as if it would apply to braiding as well.
  20. Hello, I am looking to buy a splitter for latigo whip plaiting and general splitting with low production volume (3-5 whips per week). What spliter does everyone recommend? I have been thinking a landis 5 in 1 or similar would work well for my shop but is it accurate enough? I see the most plaiters use the C.S. Osborn manual type, why is this? Thanks, Travis
  21. I am trying to get my glove operation underway to fill the needs of the multiple retail stores in my area. I craft hand-made baseball/softball fielding gloves that keep the look of the older generation of gloves along with modern features that will changes the player's perspective for a high-quality glove. Besides making high-end gloves, I have created leather seat cushions and the "Slinger", a leather drink holder that is worn around your neck with a strip of fur sewn to the leather strip to maximize the chance of forgetting you're even wearing it. Every glove created is all by hand whether that is cutting, punching, or stamping. In order to be time efficient for the next phase of production, outsourcing some of the process will increase productivity but reduce the percentage of profit. Please take the time and look at my website and also please feel free to donate in this campaign I am trying to raise $1,000 in. The cost of one of those gloves are never going to be that low again! http://kozickisports.com Rocket Hub campaign http://www.rockethub.com/projects/41867-dna-fielding-glove I hope you like to see some true genuine leather products that's actually made in America!

  22. I got a request for a rifle sling to have the edges laced with purple lace... Which I haven't been able to find anywhere! All i can find is square suede lace but that won't work for the double loop lacing. Does anyone know where I can find this!?
  23. I have a Lacemaster for sale. Has seen very little use. Around 5 years old. Can ship domestic flat rate for $325 total. Can throw in blades as well. Will need a USPS MO in hand before shipment. Thanks, Mike

    Lace Width

    I'm having trouble figuring out how thick to make my roo lace for making both turksheads and standard plaiting around a core. I've been able to make do so far by just stepping up the turkshead until it fills up the space provided for the knot, however this is only good when I don't care about consistency between knots. I would like to be able to just measure the diameter of where the knot will be and apply a simple formula and arrive at how thick the lace needs to be. I've used bernie46's method for regular plaiting (take diameter, multiply by 4.5, divide by number of strands) and it seems to work ok. I'd like to know if there is a different multiplier if you want the braiding angle to be different (ie so it results in differently shaped diamonds when braiding).
