    High Quality Buckle/ Concho Supplier

    Does anyone have any good- moderately priced but high quality Concho & Buckle suppliers? Looking for 1/2"; 3/4"; & 1" size buckles and larger conchos: say 2" and larger? I specifically do not want them to look like the cheap Tandy stuff. Thanks

    Best affordable machine

    So I’m new to leather working, I’ve been hand stitching my projects but it’s SO tedious! I’d like to get a sewing machine, but the ones I’m seeing are over $1,000? I usually use 2 layers of 8 Oz leather for my breast collars and a layer of 8 Oz and a layer of 5-6oz for inlays on the bridles I make. I don’t want a machine that barely gets through the leather, I’ve seen a few that sew 1/4” leather well (or they’re advertised to do so). Is that enough? Or do I need to get something more heavy duty? Any advice on what brands are good and what price range they’re in (around $500 would be best, but i know it’s a long shot)
  3. Hello Everyone, I am new to leather work and have been making small accessories for about a year. I ultimate goal is to make horse tack for barrel racing or possibly heavy leather hand bags. I am looking at investing into a leather sewing machine, what should I be looking for? What machines will work for me? I plan to make breast collars, halters, nose bands, etc. Let me know what you think. Thanks in Advance, Jessica
  4. Hello, again! Yeah, I've been busy. Just finished up some spur straps and a breast collar for me and my horse Patty. I did the tooling on the breast collar to match my saddle. Spur straps are 8/9 oz. veg tan and the breast collar is 10/12 oz. saddle skirting (Tandy) and lined with 5/6 oz. latigo. I went on a long ride and the collar worked great and seemed pretty comfortable for the horse so I'm happy with it. Let me know what you think. Critique welcome. Thanks for looking! -Ryan
  5. Hi I have a strip of Sedgwick English bridle leather in Dark Havana. I’m from Australia and wanting to have a go at making stock horse bridles, just work ones to start with but would like to make some good enough to show horses in eventually. My problem is the leather I have is very shiny, almost glossy on top. Other bridles I’ve seen by well known makers don’t seem to have quite the shine on their bridles that this leather has. Have I brought the wrong type of leather? Help !!!
  6. Hello all! I've recently taken in interested in leathercraft and would love some advice from others as to where I should start, particularly when it comes to figuring out which leather I should be buying. So far I've just been practicing carving, stitching, and dyeing and have made a tooled passport cover which some veg tanned leather I bought on Amazon -- which I will never do again! The leather was stiff and very difficult to stamp and carve. It almost seemed like there was some kind of coating on it as it. I see now why it was so cheap... As an avid horse person, my interests are in definitely tack making, so I'd like to start making simple projects such as wither straps, bronc halters, spur straps, and eventually headstalls. I've seen a few people suggest harness leather for projects such as these, I also see "bridle leather" available on several online leather supply stores. Is there much of a difference? What kind of thickness should I be using for these projects? Can anyone recommend the best type (and brand) of leather for projects like this that won't break the bank? Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!
  7. I am looking at getting another machine. I have a heavy stitching machine Cobra Class 4. Now I am looking for one that is more versatile I have used a Cobra Class 20 and really liked it but am also looking at a Juki 1508H I can buy local. I have heard the Juki is a little more versatile. Thoughts?
  8. I apologize if this is in the wrong place. I haven't been on here in a blue moon or two. I'm looking for a pulling style breast collar pattern with a dee ring center. It'll be send to a friend who has no experience in horse tack, but is great with all things leather. If I had my own tools and leather with me, I'd make one myself, but the downstairs neighbors don't appreciate the noise generated. Thanks everyone!
  9. Hello, I'm looking for a trusted saddle maker to make me a quality custom saddle. I'm looking for a tough ranch saddle with swells, roughout seat and round skirt. Preferably on the lighter side, but heavy duty. I'm 17 and only work part time so I'm trying to not pay much more than $1,000-$1,500. Any ideas of someone who could make me something like that in my price range? Thanks in advance!

    Help Making Bridles?

    Hello! I am just getting started in leathercrafting. I want to make horse tack, and maybe branch off into other areas later. I have extensively researched leathercrafting, so I've already got a pretty good idea of the steps and techniques involved. I want to make a western style headstall (bridle), as they are simple and somewhat similar to making belts. Basically what I want to do is a stamped design along the cheek pieces and possibly the browband as well. To do this, I know that I will need tooling leather at least for the stamped pieces. I wanted to line/glue and stitch the tooling leather on top of either harness or latigo leather, for its sturdiness and resistance to water/sweat. Is this a good plan? What size leather should I get? Should the tooling leather be heavier, or the lining? (ex. 8 oz tooling leather, 2 oz lining, or vice versa). Would it work if I went with a lighter tooling leather and heavier lining, since the latigo or harness I want to line with usually comes in heavier pieces? Also, can anyone give me an idea of how many items you can make out of a double shoulder or a side? Specifically how many straps you can get out of one, for belts or bridles, etc. My last question is on what tools I need. Making bridles is somewhat similar to making belts. I have made up a list here, if you all could tell me what is unnecessary (besides the leather marking pen) and what I don't have that I should have, I would greatly appreciate it! I want to be well prepared, but not buying more than I have to.

    Using Slotted Conchos

    Can anyone offer instructions on how to lace slotted conchos as seen in this picture? I've been staring at it for days and cannot figure it out! Thanks!
  12. I am planning on making a breast collar for my 4-H project this year. I made one last year but it was a very simple style. I want something with a little bit more flare this year and I cannot seem to find a single pattern on a different style of breast collar.

    Beaded Inlay Belt Or

    I am the owner and maker for Franklins Handmade and I do quite a bit of beading. I want to start making belts with the beaded inlay but I don't know how to. Thanks!
  14. A guy contacted me this morning and asked if I can make a blinker. I cannot, but told him I would ask around. Any takers?
  15. Hello there! I'm looking into making myself a breastcollar. The problem is, I don't want to make any more then at the most two. What cut is the best to be long enough to make a few, without buying the whole cow? I don't want to buy a lot of leather I might not use! What kind of leather do you guys recommend using? I was thinking saddle skirting, as it sounds durable. Is 10-12 oz. good? Also, would I want to use a different kind of leather on the back, like latigo (I've heard that's what some people do as it is sweat resistant), or could I get away with just backing it with what ever I decide to use on the front? What about the straps, I would think they would have to be made of a thinner more flexible leather, but I'm not sure. I can't think of any more questions now. Thanks so much in advance!
  16. Greetings! I have been making holsters and knife sheaths for several years, so I have some basic techniques down, but horse tack is new to me. A customer wants a tooled and painted breasted collar and I need some advice on construction and leather selection. The tooling means veggie tan strap leather, but I am concerned about the strength of the piece. Do I just use really thinck strap leather, or do I combine it with traditional harness leather? Left to my own ignorance, I would sew the tooled leather on to a layer of 10 oz bridle leather to give strength and thickness. Also, is there a standard/ recommended width for breasted collars? Links to measurements of any tack would be appreciated. I now live in a horse area and can see more of this work coming up. Thanks! - STEVE

    The Truth About Ohio Travel Bag...

    I have not logged in for a long time...and when I did I saw some very outdated posts and information about our company. Here's the deal: YEP! we've been in business for a very long time. YEP! Ray still works here (40 years) and knows his shiz! YEP! I'm still actively managing operations here (only 16 years)! YEP! We still have live people answering the phone, who are really nice and helpful! NOPE! We are not running our business the same as we did 20,10 or even 5 years ago! YEP! We are still a wholesale distributor, with an easy qualification process and a $30 minimum order (NOT $75). YEP! WHAT? We now happily offer RETAIL PRICING. We are adding new products every day. YEP! We heard your feedback and OTB will launch a new "better user experience" website this November, with many enhancements and it will be mobile friendly. Please contact me with any questions and I welcome the opportunity to respond to any comments or feedback, even positive ones. All my best jackie@ohiotravelbag.com http://www.ohiotravelbag.com

    Horse Bridle

    I've been meaning to make a new bridle for my horse, Belle, for a while now, and I finally finished it just a few days ago! I took apart my previous bridle to get the measurements for these pieces, and boy... I made my previous bridle about 6 years ago, and I was cringing at my workmanship... I'm glad I have a new one now. It's a much better representation of my skills! I will post photos of it on my mare when I see her next weekend. As much as I like this one, I'm not terribly attached to it... I might still make another one, and sell this one... But we'll see.

    Saddlebags

    Just about finished my first set of saddlebags. I made these using a set of the owners old nylon bags for reference. I stitched these all by hand. Learned a lot from this experience. I'm getting better with the copper rivets. The next set I make will have extra length on the top of the gussets to fold over whatever is in the bag, to keep contents from working their way out. The next set will also have a "tab" extension to tuck under the seat of the saddle to keep the bags from shifting. i need to touch up some of the dye on the strap holes and final finishing polish and buff. I can't wait to do another set as I should have my new Techsew in another week!
  20. How do I craft the type of padding seen in dog collars and horse bridles? Materials, methods...I don't know really anything about this topic. Any good insight out there? Examples:
  21. I have been searching high and low for the center piece for a breast collar. I know I can use a plain ring, or a triangular 'ring', but I am looking specifically for the type of triangular piece that has two slots in the top where the shoulder pieces attach and a slot in the bottom for the lower cinch strap. Something like Jeremiah Watt makes, only plain, no engraving. Please help!! Thanks in advance for any direction in finding the illusive....
  22. Hello! I have just purchased my first TechSew 3650 HD (super excited about it by the way) and am planning on making headstalls, breastcollars, halters, etc. I have previously been using an old Singer that has done a great job, just ready to move up to the big leagues. I have heard about using a "saddle stitch" and a regular stitch.... what is the difference between the two? What is the typical thread size, stitch length, needle size that I should use for heavy harness leather from about 11-16oz thick for my tack? I have the needle that came with the machine, I believe they are 27 (if I am remembering correctly) and 207 thread. I remember there being a post about this but I cannot seem to find it to save my life. Any help you would provide would be great! Thank you so much!

I'm wanting to make a pulling collar for my wade saddle but I don't have another one to copy a pattern from, I can't find one online, and I'd like to put off buying one for a pattern as a last resort. Nobody close has one I could borrow either. If anyone has a pattern for one, I'd gladly pay for it. Thank you! Jamie

  25. Hi all, I've started a headstall/breastcollar set and plan on doing a partial overlay (to the border). I used my divider and measured the breastcollar pattern and subtracted the borders dimensions which gave me the size of overlay I needed. It didn't work as well as I'd hoped and I was just wondering if anyone had a different/better way to cut their overlay to the size they needed. Thanks! Jamie
