  1. The bag is almost done. I'm trying to decide which strap works better for this bag. The narrow strap is red leather, which matches the tooled front and back panels. The wider strap is red cloth, which matches the red tweed sides and zipper top. This is the Lewis chessmen queen-- more detail here for those who want a better look.
  2. Strap on the side of the oil good helper, not only can hold the flat strap drum strap can also be securely clamped.

  3. I bought a prop for a costume I wear as part of a charity group. The strap is part of a holster, but I need it widened to accommodate a modification I made. I initially worked with the vendor that create the holster, but he's in Itally. It took a good almost a month for him to make it, and then the shipping took forever, with a long pause for customs, and it ultimately was too long (although I think that part was my fault, I over-estimated how long I needed it). I'd really like to commission someone in the US. It should be a fairly simple job. A strap about 3/4" x 15" with snaps on either side. The strap is currently 14.5" and will need to be lengthened. From the center of one snap to the center of the other is 13 1/4". I would like this to be 13 5/8. If your quote is reasonable, and you'd be willing, I might be wiling to pay for one slightly shorter and one slight longer just to be sure I finally get something I can use. The snaps are 1/2" wide z The strap is 3/4" wide. I can be reached via email at wraithtdk at Gmail dot com.
  4. Hi everyone, New here and looking to learn more about leathercraft. So far having a great time tinkering around with some cheap veg tan, a swivel knife, some cheap stamps, dyes, and whatever ideas pop into my head! Here is my first finished full project. I made a personalized, fixed length guitar strap for a close friend. Hand tooled and hand stitched, well hand everything lol. I was proud of the end result and he intends to use it on stage at the next gig! Hope you like it too.
  5. which hardware material to buy if i dont want my metal straps or chains or d rings to change their color.... should i go for brass (i heard it develops patina n looks difgerent wz time) or plated. if so which king of coat, and what are the chances that it will change color... i want to make a soiree/ night bag of chrome tanned leather with a golden chain and straps.. thanks
  6. How long should a shoulder strap be for a woman's handbag? I figured on making it two piece with a buckle. I figured on making the buckle strap shorter so as it won't sit on the shoulder. Am I on the right track? Thanks
  7. 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.
  8. Hello everyone, I'm a little lost. I'm looking for a strap cutting tool for soft leather. Tried the manual strap cutting tool, but there is no way I can get it to cut straps. Of course, there's the ruler method, but apart from that, is there any reasonably priced small machine that can help me achieve this which you can recommend?
  9. 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!
  10. 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
  11. Looking for Weaver or equivalent hole punch press, and edge finisher burnishing machine.
  12. 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

  14. 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
  15. Hi Folks, I just got around to finishing this one. I've never tried this slot pocket (or whatever it is called) style.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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!

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!
  22. More stuff for a festival next month. 2 Attachment type banjo straps, a cradle type banjo strap and 2 mandolin straps for F-style mandolins. Chief

  25. 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?
