    Bass guitar strap

    This is the second guitar strap I made, so I'm still figuring out some of the details. 2 mm thick veg tan, dyed with Fiebings Pro dye Black for the main backround and white Angelus acrylic paint for skull and writing on top of which I painted with several alcohol dyes. After painting I used resolene and then a coat of Antique Gel which nicely muted and blended the colors. Critique welcome!

    Atlas strap cutter

    I’ve got an older 3 phase 220 Atlas Strap cutter for sale. Bought it from an auction and couldn’t install 220 in my shop so I bought a newer 110 version. It came from a saddlery shop and was ran the week before I took it home. I have plenty of spacers and blades for it though they probably need cleaned up a bit but it would be a great addition to any shop. I have been told it would be very easy to transform to a 110 servo style motor but I just haven’t gotten around to it. I can ship at buyers cost. $800obo

    Best strap cutter?

    I'm teasing the idea of getting some sort of a strap cutting tool and I'm wondering what type people think is best. Looking at the Tandy site, it seems like I've got two real (and easily) accessible options. The draw gauge (https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/craftool-draw-gauge) and the strap cutter (https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/craftool-strap-cutter). I'm totally new to strap cutting and in general I think I'd be wanting to cut straps between 1/2" and 2" wide. Does anybody have any experience with either or both of these tools or an opinion? P.s. I'm also open to another tool that's not too hard to get your hands on/won't break the bank if anybody knows of anything.

    Wanted: Weaver Press

    Looking for Weaver or equivalent hole punch press, and edge finisher burnishing machine.
  5. I am inundated with strap scraps that need a new home. Prefer to sell by the giant box full, weighing about 40-60 pounds per box. Come and see it all and make an offer for a truckload! Located in Aurora, CO. Herman Oak golden tan bridle, 8/10 oz veg tan, and 9/11 oz. struck through Black Latigo from Chahin. Most are mixed boxes, with both colors. Most leather is cut and edged, from 3/8" to 1" wide. Also plenty of random bits and trimmings from the edges of the sides. Asking $1.50 per pound, or $40 per big box. A few boxes full of ONLY the bridle leather cut to 9/16" width. This is beautiful stuff, it's just a little too short for the products we make with it. Asking $2.00 per pound, or $60 per box. Perfect for key fobs, bracelets, small projects, 4-H, scouts, crafts, etc. Remnant from dog leash/collar business (IE: nothing long enough or strong enough if this is what you want to make, because we've used what we can for this purpose). I have a continuous supply of this stuff. Feel free to reply here, but for faster reply, just give us a call. Call or text Brian three-o-three 653-184FIVE

    Wanted Strap Cutter

    I am in need of a strap cutter. Ideally a powered machine but a good manual machine would be considered. If any one has one to sell please let me know. thanks chuck
  8. Hi Folks, I just got around to finishing this one. I've never tried this slot pocket (or whatever it is called) style.
  9. 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
  10. Hi I am looking for a supplier that is able to produce a custom coloured nubuck suitable for use as the inner lining in a watch strap. We changed our requirement from suede to nubuck based on feedback. The quantities would be small to begin with but I'd expect them to grow as our company evolves. Am happy to pay a bit extra for a small run initially. Thank you Jonathan
  11. I'm making a camera strap for my friend who saw one I made for myself and liked it. She is a minimalist and likes her leather products to abide by the dictum, "let the leather be the leather." She's fairly famous and is sent top-of-the-line products to feature in her editorials, etc., and some of those have been high-end leather bags and such. (I only mention this as context to show she has a well-informed opinion of what she likes, and though I'm not doing this in order to be featured or promoted in her work, I do want to give her the best I can do, since she's an old friend and I know she has high standards.) She prefers the aesthetic and tactility of unfinished veg tan leather, but I've never given someone something without a finish of some sort, and I'm worried that since it's a strap, and she uses a camera constantly for her work as she travels 11 out of 12 months in the year, that heavy use might take its toll more quickly than if her strap did have some sort of treatment applied to it. Maybe it would be a negligible difference. I just don't want to give her something that forsakes utility over aesthetics. So, is leaving it unfinished a terrible idea? And if so, is there some finish that best retains the color and texture of veg tan? She also likes the way it looks and feels to have veg tan take on the patina of use over time, so I don't want to deny her that either. I'm mostly concerned that it might affect the structural integrity of the strap, especially when it has a several-thousand-dollar piece of equipment on the other end, though it's only just under 2.5 lbs.
  12. Weaver Leather Economy EZ Edge strap edger Purchased in 2015. Still sharp and like new. Asking $200. Manufacturers Description: At a value price, this machine can round two edges simultaneously with ease. Edge the top and simply flip strap over to edge the bottom. Compact, hand-operated machine does not decrease strap width. Accommodates 1/2" to 3" strap widths. Starter gig is included. Easily mounts to your workbench with screws (not included). Users' Perspective: Great for making collars, leashes, and bridles. I used this for about 6 months. Made clean edges quick and easy. I could round the edge on a whole strap at one time. In my opinion, works best on 3/4 inch to 3 inch wide leather. Leather should be thick enough as to not bend down the middle too easily. I'm now doing jewelry professionally. Leather still a hobby, but thinning the tools out.

    Question about skivving

    Hi all, Question about skivving leather. If I were making something like a camera strap where I wanted to fold an end over itself to put in a D ring, do I skive the entire section where the fold is happening or should I only skive the two sections that are going to mate and leave the part where the ring would rest alone? So assuming (based on the attached graphic) that sections A and C are going to be matched up and attached to each other and that section B is where the D ring would rest, would I skive sections A, B, and C or just A and C? Thanks!

    Watch Strap Buckles And Keepers

    Hello! I am currently inbetween a rock and a hardplace. I am looking for metal watch band buckles and metal strap keepers! I have checked the trusty Ohio Trabel Bag and am unable to find a buckles suitable for leather watch stratps! Any guidance would be great! Thanks from Indiana!
  18. Hello, I've been trying to find a supplier to order american made hardware from. Preferably hardware with matte and/or antique brass finish. But mainly just looking for hardware made in the United States. I do a lot of strap and belt making, so I'm looking for American-made rivets, split key rings, o rings, d rings, reducing loops, buckles, etc. I have no idea where to look. Google hasn't been any help. There are no local manufactures in my area. The owner of www.TapAndDye.com uses all American hardware, so I know it's out there. I asked him, but never heard back. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
  19. I need to make a lightweight strap for a small bag, and im not in love with having a raw side exposed. How is a strap like this done? It looks like its finished on both sides but no stitching. I don't know if I would want to rely on glue for such an important component.. Either way I was thinking of using either 2 layers of lightweight essex (2-3 oz) or one layer of a 4.5 oz essex. I am a beginner so sorry if this is a silly question.
  20. I'm looking for 3/4 inch wide strips of veg-tan leather at 8/9 oz thick for dog leads. Basically, I need them the length of a side. I would definitely be interested in buying a side of my own, but my client may not be able to buy as many as I would need her to buy in order to make buying a side worth it. I've worked at a Tandy, and they don't have anything longer than 72 inches, and that just won't work. Are there any other suppliers that you folks know of that would sell me side-length strips that aren't crazy expensive? I don't care if they aren't trimmed down to a standard length or not. I figured I need the strip to be about 80+ inches. I would also love it if this were a constant supplier with constant pricing.
  21. Hello fellow leather heads! Just wanted to share with everyone the process I use to producing a very nice leather handle for the product line I came up with. If you have any questions about my methods or what I produce, feel free to ask! -Alec https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SKv_9FICwM
  22. Version 3 of my original. I've improved the way the strap loop slides. I'm also really happy with the way the chrome hardware and white stitching compliments the brown leather. A custom version of my bookstrap, made with a longer, wider strap and larger panel in order to accomodate a large art portfolio. A more minimal version. A more modern version I made one night while having beers with a friend. Inspired by the above version. (I grew quite attached to this one. The worst part about making such things is that I want to keep all of them. It has since been sold... I might make another one.)

    What Is This Tool Called?

    Can anyone tell me what this tool is called? I've looked around different online leather tool shops and can't seem to find it. It would be easier if I knew what it was officially called. I like the edge it produces, I just don't know what to call it. Beveler, creaser and "magic edge tool" don't seem to show this tool in any google search. Thanks in advance. Dan

    Strap Cutting Tools

    I'd like to invest in a strap cutter, but the only one I can find is the Tandy draw gauge. Which, strikes me as a an incredibly good way to cut my hand on the blade. Then I found this video : If you skip to the 1:45 mark, you can see the worker using a palm held device to cut strips. What is that tool, and where could I get one? I'd like to hear from more experienced posters on the preferred way to cut strips efficiently. Right now I'm using a ruler and it's not entirely consistent.
